Loopy Academy Projects

The requirements for semester 2 of the sophomore year at Loopy Academy have been announced. My order has been placed. Here are the requirements and here’s what I decided to make.

#1.  A project that includes both a solid/tonal yarn and a multi-colored yarn in the same project.  

This one was the most difficult for me to choose. I finally decided on Spectra.  I will use Skacel, Zauberball Crazy Socks in color #2204, which is a limey/olive green with some gray. I’ll use Cascade Heritage Silk in Black for the solid.

#2.  A pattern that includes twisted stitches. 

For twisted stitches, I chose Fruit Loop. It’s a free pattern and had been in my library for a while. For the yarn, I chose Cascade’s Heritage Wave in the Tropical color.

#3.  A pair of socks, knit top down or toe up, whichever you are least familiar with. 

I’ve made both toe up and top down socks so I figured I’d just go with whatever pattern floated my boat. I chose Downton – Farewell and the yarn I will use is Cascade Heritage Sock in Denim.

There’s plenty of time to join in Loopy Academy and if you didn’t do the Freshman semesters, you can still do those. It’s quite a bit of fun, challenging and there are prizes! Come on and join in the fun!

You know . . if I’m going to order yarn, I’m taking you all down with me!  🙂

    I loved making Spectra – seeing all those colored wedges appear. I should make another since I gave my first one away. But you are not enticing me down the rabbit hole this time. LOL I’m sitting out the semester of Academy both fabric and yarn, and going to concentrate on Mixer projects instead this year but will be watching everyone’s progress.
