From Susan — Letters from Camp

Filed under: Updates — lv2knit @ 1:17 pm

Dear Peeps,

I’m back!  Back into my daily routine.  I thoroughly enjoyed Camp and travelling with my knitting peep Kim.  Surly missed out this year but might go next year!

I spent money like a drunken knitter.  It was crazy!  My knitting funds are now depleted…

I couldn’t help myself.  One of the Campers (Denise of Lost City Knits) was wearing the Scatness Tunic by Kate Davies in Colours of Shetland — so cute!  I could see myself wearing it in so many ways.  I like that it’s not skin tight.  I selected Jamieson Spindrift and had to substitute colors.  As luck would have it, the famous feralknitter is a fellow Camper (Janine) and assisted me greatly!  She is sending me some yarn that was out of stock so I should be able to start this soon.

I have to share another picture.  I went to my knitting group last evening and Jimmy was there with his completed hoodie.  He has been working on it for Y E A R S.  It is not only his own design, but he created the colorway himself by spit splicing colors throughout.  Every few stitches.  All the way along.  We call it his DNA Sweater because the police could surely identify his remains easily with this garment!! 😉

Is he not adorable?

Sincerely yours,

A Happy Camper 🙂

  2. How have I not seen Scatness before! We need to get together and knit colorwork!

    And, Kudos to Jimmy on the sweater. Wow.

  3. Beyond cuteness, combined with intellect, and sense of adventure=Jimmy. He adds a lot to our Thursday group.

  5. I have a legendary stash of Jamieson spindrift, and even a ittle of its predecessor with Alice Starmores name on it. If for any reason her offer falls through, pm me, and let me know what you need. I live in South Minneapolis.
