Transatlantic – Camp Loopy Project #1

After a good deal of persuasion, my knitting frond convinced me to join Camp Loopy for the summer. What a nice idea and I bet it’s a huge revenue generator for the shop. I’ve never been there, but with all their personal touches to my mail order, I feel like I have – and I look forward to shopping there now on a regular basis.

Part of the fun of Camp Loopy is that every participant has a time frame to complete each of the 3 projects and then must upload them to the store’s gallery. At the end, campers who played in all three contests and completed the tasks in a timely manner, win a kit of something wonderful. How could I miss out?

Diamond Exchange Scarf – pattern

The time had come to put a personal pattern online. The Diamond Exchange Scarf is a personal fave for many years and I was lucky enough to know a few crocheters who were willing to test it for me. I used sock weight yarn, because that’s my favorite. They seemed to enjoy the pattern and the results – what a wonderful feeling. Big smiles. 😀

I really do love making this pattern over and over, so I think scarves for Christmas gifts in 2010 is a definite possibility. I had bought some very soft cashmere on eBay and I currently stash a ton of Koigu, so I played with the colors and found myself in love with this one. I will keep it for my own use, but I may make another similar for my sister, because she likes the knitted and crocheted stuff quite a bit – who knew?

And how about a little math to make a pillow for my sewing spot?

A resounding “YES” and sew it was done.
