Camp Loopy Project II starts July 15 and it’s socks, mittens or gloves but the catch it . . they have to have cables. The yarn for my project will be Madelinetosh Sock and the color is Composition Book Gray, which is actually a grayish lavender. I have this same color in Madelinetosh Vintage to make a sweater.
Deciding on a pattern to use is the hardest part so I’m going to ask you to vote to decide what pattern I should make! That way, if it’s too hard or I don’t like it, I can blame you. Between now and cast on day (July 15), I may come up with a totally different pattern but as of today, here are the choices and you can leave a comment and tell me which one you think I should choose and why you think that. I tell you what I’ll do . . because it takes a few minutes of your time to look at the patterns and comment, I’ll draw a name from the comments and one person will receive three spools of Essential thread from Connecting Threads. A name will be chosen Sunday (tomorrow, the 10th) evening.
When I first began looking at patterns, I was looking for something really easy and I thought I would use Cabley Goodness. The more I looked at patterns, the more I liked more intricate patterns. Intricate or simple? July 15 – August 15 is going to be a crazy time around here so I just don’t know whether I should do something I can do almost with my eyes closed or whether I should tackle a project that will keep my mind off all the things I should be doing besides knitting.
The first pattern option is Paraphernalia. I like those cables and think they would show up nicely on the tone on tone grayish lavender yarn.
If I had to choose today, I might choose these. They’re Olympic Copper and I really like them.
These are BFF Socks by Cookie A. They look kinda “retro” and I can see how they would be fun to make.
I’ll add up the totals, and I may or may not make the socks you’ve chosen . . just depends on what’s happening and how industrious I feel on July 15. Your choices are:
Tell me what you think!
