Knit knit knit...

I have been knitting quite a bit this week but it does not look like I made much progress.  I am in the home stretch of the Surrounding Tank---I think I have 7 inches to go on the torso of the sweater.  I keep telling myself, "Just keep knitting. Knit. Knit. Knit."  I really want to finish by Thursday since this is my Camp Loopy project number two, which needs to be finished by the end of the month.
Please tell me it looks like I have made some progress since last week!  The yarn is Shibui Knits Linen.  Knit, knit, knit, knit.....

Finally! Friday Needles Report

Whew!  I was on travel last week!  I spent a total of 4 days in airports, which makes for some great knitting time.  I have been working on my Surrounding Tank.  I hope it fits.  I am in love.  I have finished the neck, am past the arm holes, and now just knitting the torso.
Can't wait to see what everyone else is knitting.

Camp Loopy July!

I am so excited to start my next Camp Loopy project!  I am knitting Surrounding Tank by Hannah Fettig in Lime Shibui Knits Linen.  It will be my first time to use linen--wish me luck!
Hopefully I will have a few minutes so I can get my yarn wound into cakes so I can get my swatch going.  Just didn't have enough time this weekend to do that.

Friday Needles Report

Woohoo!!!  I have finished my Camp Loopy project for June!!  I'm even a couple of days ahead.  It is Trellis Lace Scarf in Loopy Legends Pink Parrot.  I wore it yesterday and really like it.

I have my July Camp Loopy project ready to wind and swatch, but will probably wait till next week to get to that.

I did pull out the Little Black Shrug and worked on it until I messed up and need to try to re-knit that row today.

Friday Needles Report

More progress on my Camp Loopy project, Trellis Lace Scarf in Loopy Legends Pink Parrot. I was hoping to be farther along, but had a couple of oops moments that caused me to rip back to my lifeline.  Hope I can finish by the end of the month. 
I ordered my July Camp Loopy project yarn yesterday.  Can't wait to give that a whirl!

Design Wall Monday

I rarely use a design wall, but I did have it handy and decided since I had no idea what I was doing that this was the ticket.  I'm combining my commissioned project with Camp Loopy's June fabric challenge.  I want to piece a background that looks like the sea.  Now that I view the picture, I can see I have too much yellow and it is in the wrong places.  More un-sewing to do tonight!
