WiP Wednesday

I’m chugging away at my Camp Loopy shawl, and I’ve already started on my second skein – which means I must be more than halfway done!!

Big blob of lace knitting.

Pattern: EZ 100th Anniversary Camping half-circle shawl
Yarn: Sanguine Gryphon Bugga! in Dog Days Cicada

I know I keep repeating myself, but this yarn is sooooo soft!!  I adore this shawl and it’s not even done yet!!  Seriously… if you’ve never knit with Bugga then you have GOT to get yourself some and knit with it. GOT TO.

Doesn't that look squishy and soft? IT IS!

I’m on the third repeat (of 4) of the third lace section.  If I do the edging the pattern calls for I’m pretty sure I won’t get to the required 800 yards (it’s the Camp Loopy project #3 requirement), so I’m going to change the edging pattern to something more complicated and a bit longer than the original edging.  But I’m not sure what I’m changing it to yet.  I need to decide soon, because not only am I close to starting the edging, but we’re going camping (actual camping!!) this weekend and I won’t have access to the internet or Ravelry to be able to find something on the fly once I get to the edging.  Eeek!  I guess I’ll be pouring over my lace books and shawl patterns on Ravelry today to find something appropriate.  Perhaps I should find more than one in case I decide I don’t like the first one?  Or is that taking it a bit too far?

Maybe I’ll just stick with bringing along extra knitting projects as backup instead.  Or maybe I’ll do that in addition to finding two or three lace edging patterns.  Yes, that sounds like a good plan!  You can never have too much knitting with you – that’s my motto. 😀

Happy Knitting!  And check out some other WiPs while you’re at it!

    I have some S.G Bugga too and it is soft. I keep petting the skeins and waiting for the perfect project. 😀

    Great progress on your shawl. Great progress!!! Good luck with the changes you want to make on it. The F.O will be lovely.

    i haven’t tried sanguine gryphon yarns yet, but they’re on my wish list 🙂 your shawl looks great. that is such a pretty pattern, isn’t it? have a great time camping — i agree, take plenty of knitting.

  3. Wow that looks complicated!

    • It’s not too terribly complicated, I got a bit confused on the third lace pattern in it, but I had made a mistake in the row before, so that’s what was messing me up! Once I got past that it was a breeze!

  4. Love the way the pattern swirls! I haven’t tried Sanguine Gryphon yarns yet – none of my LYS carry it :(. I ordered a couple skeins as presents for my SILs – I guess I should have added a skein or two for myself!
