June Camp has yielded wonderful finished projects. I have some early FO pictures to share. But first, a brief shout out to the newest yarn to make our “Can’t Knit Without It” list…
…Perennnial from Kelbourne Woolens! Brigid made her spectacular Roxborough Dolman*, designed by Courtney Kelly, in Perennial. The soft hand! The crisp stitch definition! Those colors! With 497 yards per skein, she barely needed 3 skeins. Perennial is a light fingering weight yarn, able to easily transition from lace to sport to DK weight gauges.
The color range…
For another fun Perennial project, flip back to the last post for Rebecca’s crocheted hat. (Be prepared to be wowed.) And now, some completed, Frequent Buyer Point-winning, amazing camp projects:
Paula N. made her Butterfly/Papillon* in one month! This boggles my mind. She, quite literally, made quick work of Marin Melchior’s labyrinthine pattern. Her yarn is Urth Uneek Fingering. Congatulations, Paula!
Tina used Ewe So Sporty in Sky Blue for her Little Aiden* from Dawn Catanzaro. Tina commented in her Ravelry project notes, Ewe So Sporty yarn has great stitch definition for the Gansey style knitting and is superwash for ease [of] the parents. Don’t you love the little underarm gussets?
Above, Gina’s vibrant Napi shawl in Fibre Company Arranmore Light. Gina used Grace Akhrem’s pattern more as a helpful guide as she knit, adding sections of seed stitch, 1×1 rib, and garter to the original pattern’s mesh lace stitch.
Several projects that crossed the finish line have yet to visit the shop. I hope the next post will include Sharon’s Mimosa* and Stephanie’s Margarita*. Ann’s Windom Wrap* can be seen on our camp discussion thread on Ravelry. I’m looking forward to seeing Kelly’s post to our GYI Facebook page of her 3 Color Cashmere Cowl*.
Here’s a non-Camp FO of Gina’s, a beautiful Iba* cardigan from Bonne Marie Burns. The yarn is Crestone, now discontinued. Sometimes a yarn needs to hibernate in your stash awhile until the perfect pattern comes along, which is exactly what happened here!
I’ll close with a splash of color, Bonnie’s children’s socks, made using her own pattern and Regia yarn.
