And the sun was out yesterday, so I got some beauty shots of my latest shawls. First up, my Treasure Island Cape, front view.
Have you heard? It's time for Camp Loopy. Camp week - the week you can get discounts on the yarn used in the camp challenge is this week. I wasn't going to do it again this year, but I caved. The first challenge is easy. Knit or crochet something that uses only 1 skein (at least 375 yards), but it has to be a yarn that you haven't used before. Well, that might be a bit of a challenge, but there is no harm in looking. So I went to the Camp Loopy site and checked out the yarns, just looking, and found Dragonfly Fibers Djinni Sock, a yarn that I have never used before. The first color that caught my eye was Queen of Tarts. How can you resist that name. Then I spotted Blue Morpho Butteryfly. You have to understand, I have been haunted by the Blue Morpho ever since I listened to the ZBS radio play Dreams of the Blue Morpho. I have been wanting to make something inspired by that radio play ever since I heard it. Actually, I thought it would be cool to design a whole series inspired by the Adventures of Jack Flanders radio plays, starting with Blue Morpho. And here is the yarn. It was meant to be.
I'll use the Queen of Tarts for the challenge, and find a nice one skein shawl. I have tons of patterns, and there are lots more on Ravelry if I don't have one in my library that suits.
