Loopy Academy, Freshman Year, Semester Two
My yarn for second semester finally arrived! (It took its time getting here, but it’s here now.) First semester of Loopy Academy was all about specific projects: a cowl, a hat, and a pair of mittens. This second semester is all about specific techniques: stripes, slipped stitches, and something felted. There is still a 175 yard minimum yardage per project, but as long as the projects use the specific techniques, you can knit anything.
- Stripes: Alice Caterpillar Mitts in Loopy Solids Charcoal and Smoke with the ruffle in Shibuiknits Silk Cloud in Lumen (at bottom, horizontally)
- Slipped Stitches: Endless Love Mitts in Loopy Solids Charcoal (at left, vertically)
- Felted: Soft Porcelain Bowls in Cascade 220 Gray with lace in Natural (at right vertically)
I will have to adjust the pattern for the Alice Caterpillar mitts because they’re written for DK weight yarn and I’ll be knitting them in fingering weight yarn. I don’t think I’ll make the yardage minimum in the DK weight.
I’ll be winding yarn this weekend and starting something! (I haven’t decided what, just yet.) I’ll show you Clue 3 of Follow Your Arrow 2 on Monday since I’m still knitting on it. Have a great weekend!
