Finished With The Knitting!

I finished knitting my Ravello for Camp Loopy 2014, Project 3 this weekend!  I’ve still got all the ends to weave in from the sleeves, and it needs a blocking, but the knitting is finished.  I easily cleared the 800 yard requirement for this project and I’ve put the actual yardage I used for each color on the project page (I weighed my yarn before I started and after I finished).  I also included needle sizes - what I used where.  One thing I’ve figured out is that I tend to knit tighter on the 9 inch circulars I like to use for sleeves.  It’s taken me a while to figure this out but I did finally learn.

I’ve got yarn for two more Ravellos in the stash and I may cast on for one of those later this week.  I love the shape (and the stripes) of Ravello.  We don’t get bitter cold winters here, but when it gets cold, it’s usually still humid, which makes it feel a lot colder than it actually is.  I’ve found that wearing lightweight sweaters like a long sleeved T-shirt and then layering heavier sweaters or scarves over them makes a big difference on the cold days.  Not that it’s cold here yet.  Things won’t start cooling down around here until later in September and I won’t need a sweater until October or November.
