I'm Back!

The little blog-cation was just the thing I needed.  I think I've been so concerned lately with feeding the blog that I haven't been enjoying knitting.  Taking a break helped me put things in perspective.  I'm going to work on what I want, when I want and if I feel like casting on a new thing every day, I will.  If I feel like reading a book and have nothing to blog, that's fine too.  I'll show you some of what I've been working on tomorrow, but today is Day 1 of Camp Loopy Project 2!

The challenge for Project 2 is to knit a popular project that you've never knit before.  The pattern you choose has to have over 1000 "projects" or over 1000 "queues" in Ravelry.  You also have to use at least 500 yards and it has to be knit and finished by July 31.  I'll be using two skeins of Madelinetosh Pashmina in Cousteau (there's more green in the yarn than is photographing, but it's just like it sounds - a deep, blue green) to make Henslowe.  I'll be making it a little bigger to make the yardage requirement.  They've re-divided us among treehouses for Project 2 (we were divided among mountains for Project 1 - I hiked Mt. Fiberopolis), and this time around I'm in Treehouse 1.  Once I get back home with groceries later this morning, I hope to cast on!

New reader also from DFW (in Bedford)-love blog so far! The new shawl project will be beautiful in that yarn. My camera never gets the real color of my yarn either. It likes to bring out really vibrant colors instead of the more subtle tones. Aren't today's temps wonderful?

I'm doing the clapotis. I'm using a different weight yarn than it calls for, though...
