Camp Loopy Project Two runs from July 1st to the 31st, and consists of the following challenge:
"Has there been a popular pattern that passed you by? This challenge is to knit a pattern that has been popular with other knitters, that you haven’t knit before. The project needs to have at least 1000 projects listed (or 1000 queued up) on Ravelry, and it needs to use at least 500 yards, single stranded."
Well, Wingspan has 7698 projects, and is in 7814 queues. I think that qualifies. I've had this pattern in my Favorites, but have been putting it off. I tend to not like knitting the patterns EVERYONE's done, such as Clapotis, or the Hitchhiker. But I really do love the look of the Wingspan, and well, if Camp Loopy is making me knit it . . .
For Project One all 'campers' were assigned mountains (Go Mt Fiberopolis!), and for Project Two we were supposed to be assigned to Tree Houses. But I didn't get one! I guess I can pick any of them to join, but it's just not the same (if I sound whiny here, it's because I am)!
Off to wind my yarn so I can cast-on!
