playing catch up

I know, I know...... And I'm home sick today, so I really DO have an excuse since I pretty much slept all weekend, and just now remembered that I forgot to post anything. is the completed camp loopy procect 1 finished and blocking. I have another week or so until I can cast on for project 2. Yes, like the lemming I am, it's going to be a color affection. The second project needed to be more than 800 yards and have a color from your native flag. I picked this gorgeous combination of purple and blue (blurple, really), and I think it's going to be pretty darned nice. The house is coming along nicely, in spite of a little (OK big) truss incident this weekend. We should have a roof and probably windows by the end of the week. I'll leave you with some garden eye candy. I just love oriental poppies. It's too bad they get destroyed the first time it rains.

camping with loopy

Last summer I had a great time participating in camp loopy. This fun little adventure consists of 3 projects over 3 months, each with a different challenge. There are prizes, discounts and just general fun had by all. Of course, I'm doing it again!! The first challenge this summer is to make something designed by someone who is not from your home country. I chose a canadian designer, and some very pretty green fingering weight yarn and cast on. I'm making OK progress, I DO have until the end of the month. No pics, though quite yet. The sock is at a stall. I had a bit of confusion over the language for the heel, and I moved on to the camp project. Over on squiggi builds a house......the slab is done and we're expecting walls tomorrow. We should have most of a house by the end of the week. Exciting!!!! Here's a little garden eye candy to help with the lack of knitting content. This is for you knitnana......your favorite color!
