Usually at The Loopy Ewe there is a quarterly challenge but they’re switching it up – or actually “mixing” it up. The challenge is to mix — mix two yarns, mix yarn and beads, etc. using at least 300 yards of yarn.
You know that I don’t have any knitting projects actually in the works or projects I want to start in the next month or so right??? Okay – not true but what is one more project?
So what am I planning to do for Loopy’s Challenge? (you can tell from the photo that he’s been shopping for me again!)
I’m going to be making Racing Raindrops Scarf and you can see the pretty yarn and beads Loopy selected for me at the above link to my Ravelry projects.
I’ve never beaded anything before which is why I like these challenges – the challenge may not require something I haven’t tried but I like to add my own little challenge to them and try something new. Could be that Loopy got a bit carried away and ordered more yarn than just for the challenge project….. he’s a bit overzealous like that at times.
With all our cold weather lately, I was thinking perhaps Little Loopy needs a pair of these to wear! He of course would request they be red!
So, if like me, you have absolutely no knitting projects in process (would that be a little white lie or a bald-faced lie?) check out Sheri’s Blog for all the details of the challenge.
The bad part about TLE challenges – the chat groups that are set up – I end up adding way to many patterns to my already bursting Ravelry library seeing all the fun projects others are making and all the pretty yarns.
