Insouciant is finished! I did finish in time for the Camp Loopy 3 deadline. Whew! I got a quick lesson on the mattress stitch (Thank you, Eve!--it makes sense now). I picked up the stitches and knit the neck on Monday. Three times!!! The first time I had two noticeable holes in the front where I picked up stitches. The second time I picked up tooo many stitches and had a lettuce-like wavy neckline. The third time was the charm. I am really excited about it and need to start planning another one.
Remind me next year NOT to start Camp Loopy. It is a lot of fun, and the chatter does encourage me to get things knitted, but I have neglected so many things this summer that I wanted to sew and knit.
