Camp Loopy 2014, Project 2

It’s July, so that means it’s time for Project 2!  I cast on yesterday (that white yarn you see peeking out of the rolled lower edge is a provisional cast on), and I’ve made it past the curved lower edge.  I’m now at the “knit evenly” section.  I’m going to join a second skein on the next row and alternate them.  I’ll alternate skeins through the rest of the project just to make sure there’s no color weirdness.  That’s the best thing to do with hand dyed yarns anyway.

This is the first time I’ve used Malabrigo Rios and I really like it.  I love the colors and (granted I’m only about halfway through my first skein) the way it’s knitting up.  Just in case you were wondering, yes, those are pink needles!  (Dyakcraft Darn Pretty Interchangeables, 5 inch length with lace tips in Positively Pink)  I’ve got all the project details (not the needle details) on my Rav project page if you’re interested.  I think the only change I’m making to the pattern is to skip the buttons (and button holes) and use the leather clasp instead.
