August Camp Loopy projects

I’m making the Farmhouse Shawl for my Camp knitting project.  I need to go wind the last hank of yarn.  I’m using a new Cascade yarn — Wave — which is a worsted weight that changes hue.  It’s perfect for this pattern.

I am farther along than this last photo I took.  I think I’ll probably just knit until I’m out of yarn and not add the fringe on this one.

For my sewing project I made a blouse.

I have buttons on order and once they arrive I can make the buttonholes, stitch the cuff lining in place and hem the bottom.

Today I’ve been putting with a stack of batik scraps and a charm pack of all shades of gray to black batiks as the backgrounds to my gem blocks.  I’ve been wanting to try out my Mini Hex N More ruler template from Jaybird Quilts and the gem blocks turn out so cute.  I can cut two large block pieces from a batik charm square.  These could be become very addictive little blocks to make.
