I finished my first Project for Camp Loopy Ewe 2012……a baby blanket (that is what the pattern calls it – but I call it a baby afghan.) The pattern is free on Ravelry and is called PINE FOREST BLANKET! We were to choose a pattern by a designer who was from somewhere other than our country – this one is designed by Ingrid Aartun. Judy Laquidara of Patchworktimes.com is using this same pattern so I borrowed her photo of the project – see the photo below.
I used the color Malibu – seemed fitting since I moved to VA from California! I used Dream in Color Classy – 3 skeins from the Loopy Ewe! The pattern called for 2 1/2 skeins but I think my gauge is larger than normal – so I used the entire 3 skeins! This was easy and FAST to make! We had from May 27 to June 27 to finish the first project. I spent May 27 at Busch Gardens so didn’t start until May 28 and I finished June 6!
It is interesting how the color looks different in the two pictures!
