Camp Loopy Shawl

Here is my finished shawl!

Pattern: EZ 100th Anniversary Camping Half Circle Shawl
Yarn: Sanguine Gryphon Bugga! in Dog Days Cicada (2 skeins)
Needles: US 8
Started: August 15, 2011
Finished: August 30, 2011

Modifications:  I changed the first lace section from the cat’s paw lace to ‘Ladybug Lace’ found in Knitted Lace of Estonia, page 138.

Also, for the edging I only did 3 plain stockinette rounds before starting the lace edge and I did a double yarnover in the first edging row to give a more open lace border.  (I didn’t actually mean to do that, but I like how it looks, so I’ll just say it was on purpose! :-D)  I did a very loose crochet cast off to finish.

This was a wonderful pattern, I enjoyed it very much.  And the shawl blocked to a very nice size – 36 inches high and 66 inches wide.

So, that finishes my Camp Loopy experience – it was such fun!!  And really helped to get my knitting mojo back.  (And I’m looking forward to the Wollemeise reward!)  Now my only problem is figuring out what to knit next!!

Happy Knitting!
