The second Camp Loopy project is to do something that has been popular but you haven't done. My friend and fellow camper Erin decided she wanted to do Catkin, so I decided to join her. The funny thing is that this was going to be my very first Camp Loopy project back in 2011. At that time I bought Dream in Color Smooshy in Lunar Zazzle and Night Watch. I ended up knitting Over the Moon instead - a much easier project. This time around I went for Dream in Color Smooshy with Cashmere, and I bought Blue Skies Ahead and Rosy. Not only did I like the colors, I also like the positive attitude engendered by the color names. They don't have as much contrast as most of the other color choices for this shawl, but I like them. I usually agonize over color choices, but I'm getting better about not doing that. Originally I was going to start with the blue, but when I was swatching I decided that the colors would look better the other way around.
