The Loopy Ewe in Fort Collins, Colorado
May 2013

Named in honor of Arrested Development’s long-awaited fourth season!

I went down a needle size for the gauge swatch, since this is a light fingering, then I decided to go down another. Please ignore the mistakes in the swatch. =)

June 1 - cast on! Putting in a lifeline every 15 rows or so since I had those mistakes in the gauge swatch. Blocked the first motif to make sure going down .25 mm didn’t hurt. It didn’t. =)

June 14 - Ack! Trying to finish socks for the Cookie A sock club has put me behind! I now need to knit like 25 yards a day…YIKES!

June 26 - Omigosh, I’m so sick of this pattern! I’m almost at 15 repeats, but I may have to do more to get the required yardage (375) for Camp Loopy. cries

June 28 - GAH…I had to do 18 repeats to get yardage for Camp Loopy. Probably could have done with 15 if I’d used the larger needle, but I know I’m happier with the fabric this way. It’s sooo long though…kind of a pain to style…kind of more of a light shawl than a scarf at this point. I still like it. =)
