New 6- Camp Loopy 2013 Project 1 - Kinta - Space Cadet in Quilt Blue

Camp Loopy 2013 Project 1 – Kinta – Space Cadet yarn in Quilt Blue


Yes, my  Camp Loopy project got bound off last night, ends buried and today I blocked it.  It didn’t turn out with as many repeats as the pattern called for, even tho I had 20 yards more yarn than the pattern called for, but it turned out pretty.

Can’t wait to see what’s next for Camp Loopy’s second project.


I also bound off the Ruffled Neckwrap I had shown earlier.  I need to do some searching through the button bins to see what I can find for it.

It was a day of knitting projects.  I even pulled a shawl out of the never ending “need to block these” basket and that is now pinned out on blocking wires with the fan aiding in speeding up it’s drying a bit.  Slowly I’m making my way through that  basket which is good if I’m to meet my Sticks ‘n Strings challenge by the end of the year.

This evening I think  it will be back to the scarf I was making for Dad.  I think there’s only about 6″ to go.

Heads or Tails variations

Heads Or Tails is the next Strictly for the Birds project coming later this month.  I’ve made a slight modification to the design from the original, which probably isn’t even obvious, and since I was playing in EQ, I decided to show you what they would look like with some different colored/styled fabrics in them.  I love fall looking things, batiks, brown and aquaish colors so the first one is probably my favorite (and mine will be made in fabrics that give a similar feel),  followed a close second by coincidentally the second one – the scissors fabric for the birds and those dots – so clean and bright and summery feeling.

So have you made your fabric choices yet?  Some basic yardage info has been added to the Strictly for the Birds page but mostly scraps will do.  The main portion of these blocks will be paper pieced.
