Image6  I’ve been knitting along on my summer short sleeved CustomFit sweater this past week while waiting for Camp Loopy to start on Sunday.

I got a good bit done – about half of this was knit this week.  It’s the back and other than seed stitch edge – it’s all stockinette stitch so definitely easy going.  I still keep changing my mind about what stitch pattern will go in a panel up the front but I have time to figure that out.

I’m going to have to get out the calculator this weekend.  I still haven’t added in the yarn I showed of my last purchase to my “yarn in yardage total” on my Knit the Stash totals (okay even I have to laugh when I type “knit the stash” because I’m clearly failing). 😉  But I will need to also add in this….

Image9Aren’t those fun summery looking colors.

The Lanna Grossa Silkhair Print is so pretty and soft (mohair) and I plan to use it to make Light As A Feather  rav_link. I’ll just have to find a second yarn to go with it but I know I definitely can find that in the stash.  It looks like such a great little wrap and much easier to wear than many shawls that I never really know how to wrap them around my shoulders and pin in place so they don’t come loose or bug me while I’m trying to work.  Made with the mohair and another yarn, the wrap should be soft and light but cozy warm around the neck.  Since I was ordering that yarn, and it’s from the same shop that carries some German self-striping sock yarns I like, On Line, and since it was flat rate shipping, the other three came along for the ride.

We won’t even mention that I was also able to snag some Wollmeise again from The Loopy Ewe so that will be arriving on Monday.  Yes I shall need the calculator to add things up!   One good thing – it’s nearly Camp Loopy so there will be finished projects in the next three months to add into the yarn KNIT tally.
