Blue Loopy Groupie Shawl - DONE!

Started Jun 15/11
Finished Jul 2/11

This is part of Camp Loopy. It's a project that needs to be knitted between Jun 15 & Jul 15. I don't usually do good with deadlines but I'm going to try. I didn't think I could even be a part of this camp since we had to be evacuated due to wildfires in AZ.

Jun 26/11 - gotten back into knitting and knitted one skein so my about 1/4 done and 220 yards into my project!

Jun 28/11 - half way done!

Jul 2/11 - done! Had issues with my needles at the end so the bind off looks terrible. Just needs to be washed & blocked!

Needles: Size 4 & 7 circulars

Yarn: The Loopy Ewe Solid Series in Hydrangea & Royal Blue

Wheat Hat - DONE!

Started Jun 9/11
Finished Jun 12/11

I have a deadline for this knit. It's a sample knit for Becoming Art. It has to be done by Jul 12/11. I'm gotten a good start. It's the first time I've casted on with a provisional cast on.

Jun 10/11 - Had to frog it and redo it. I was following the large gauge instead of the small gauge. I was at 30 rows and it wasn't close to 8".

Jun 12/11 - done except for the pom poms. Will finished tomorrow.

Jun 13/11 - Pom poms done. I’m not good at making them though.
