We’re halfway thru 2012. Can you believe it? I cannot…
My weekend away was quite good. It’s always nice to spend a couple days shopping and chatting with friends from across the country. I managed to start Mirabilia’s Sunflower Fairy and the resounding agreement was to use Pampas. Pictures soon…
I finished my Camp Loopy project – Hitchhiker and a picture will appear after it finds its way to its new home. Second Camp Loopy project is moving along, though I have to admit choosing to do a triangle shawl in worsted wool in a Phoenix summer was probably not my best thought. Should have stuck with lace weight.
For June, Heather’s Theme-alicious called for animals.
Interestingly, I managed to hit the theme on a couple of occasions without really trying. I worked on Sea to Shining Sea and found fish in the river of the center house. I started Betsy by Sheepish Designs and found sheep. I picked up July Sings by Bent Creek (the last month I need to finish off the full set of monthly Snappers) and three birds are the center of the design.
And here I thought I was short on animal designs.
July is devoted to holidays. I left the timers at home while I was away, so I’ll be starting Round Five of my 2012 Rotation tomorrow, July 1st. A mix of WIPocalypse pieces, new starts and old WIPs:
In no particular order….
- Betsy by Sheepish Designs (holiday – Independence Day)
- Sunflower Fairy by Mirabilia
- Snow Charmer from Mill Hill (holiday – Christmas)
- Lilac Pixie by Mirabila (WIPocalypse)
- June Cottage – LHN (WIPocalypse)
And knitting like the wind for Camp Loopy 🙂 Gotta finish by July 27!
