Knitting in Art

Girl Knitting by a Window

Johann Georg Meyer von Bremen (1813 – 1886, German)

Now doesn’t this painting make you want to sit by a wide open window and knit?

My yarn arrived for the first Camp Loopy Project. Have you heard about Camp Loopy? I enjoyed this virtual knitting camp last summer that I have signed up again. The challenges will help me get some Christmas knitting done which I will appreciate come late November. As usual, there will be three camp projects and if I am able to finish all three then I will receive a nice skein of cashmere yarn. Sound tempting? If it does, check out the details on Sherri’s blog. Knitting for the first project begins May 26.

20120517-160555.jpgThe first challenge is to knit a project using at least 400 yards of yarn. Since the 2012 Summer Olympics are right around the corner Sherri has stipulated that the pattern used be from a designer outside of your own country. I will be knitting my husband a pair of socks designed by the Yarn Harlot (Canada) called Earl Grey. I ordered a skein of Dream in Color Smooshy in a nice manly color called Jungle Cloud. There are 450 yards on the skein and I expect to use most of it since the husband’s feet are large and he likes his cuffs tall.
