Campfire Knitting


I just got back from a wonderful camping trip in the Adirondacks. We had such a great time.  I casted on a Nymphalidea Shawl using my handspun Loop Bull's Eye Bump and my handspun cormo from Reflections of Roclan's. I purchased both of the fibers at the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival. I am heavily modifying the shawl pattern. I love how the Loop Bump is self striping and I am adjusting the wedges to really show off the color changes. I love it so far.

And for new pattern release info I have finished the Treasure Cardigan Pattern! I am planning on releasing both the Treasure Vest & Treasure Cardigan before September 1st! Sorry the picture isn't clear.... you'll have to wait for the formal release to get the good pictures. Unless you saw me in Lake George with past week wearing it. Then maybe you got a sneak peek!




For reading I am listening to the last book in the Outlander Series. I am going to be sooooo sad when I finish this book. I am not sure how I am going to cope :(

What a perfect shawl - cormo and loop batt. Cormo is one of my favorite fleeces and Loop - well, what can you say? It's such a fun spin!

Oooh, campfire knitting is the best! I have very happy memories of knitting a shawl next to a campfire a few years ago. Your's is coming out amazing! I love that you were able to modify the pattern to make the white stripes.
