So I sort of won Stash Dash. I say sort of because I finished over 4,000 yds of knitting. Which is more than enough to qualify for the 3K. However, since I was up knitting until midnight on the day of the finish, I did not post everything to Ravelry. Which means that in the eyes of the Stash Dash Commissioner, it wasn’t really finished.
I’m really ok with this. I don’t need any prizes. All I need is the satisfaction of getting things cleared off the needles (and your comments telling me how cool everything is).
Hygge Baby Cardigan – 294 yds – DONE
Lettuce Pullover – 1880 yds
Haruni Shawl – 440 yds
Solaris Cardigan – 1680 yds DONE
Hitch Pullover – 1120 yds DONE – this is the most current photo I have of it. I’ll post more once it’s been bathed and is photo ready.
Wabi-sabi – 924 yds
Zephyr Cardigan – 1200 yds
Remnant Love – 850 yds
Marin – 385 yds
2nd Zick Zack – 831 yds
BLT Scarf – 346 yds – DONE
Lydia Cowl Longer & Better – 380 yds – DONE – again, photos of this to come as I get it bathed and beautiful.
The grand total planned yardage = 10,150
Finished yardage = 4350
Whew! That’s a lot of knitting. Now, had I actually stuck to the plan I think I could have made it to the 5K goal. The problem was I kept getting distracted by new and shiny projects. While knitting is knitting, knitting 380 yds on a sweater to finish it would give me better meterage than knitting a brand new project. Oh well. Que sera sera and all that.
Now I’m feeling a bit of a let down after the rush to get projects finished. I’m debating about finding another KAL to work on or just doing my own thing for a bit. I’ll keep you updated on what I decide.
In the meantime, I found out that both my girls like wearing tube socks (ick!) so I might have to make some.
One thought on “Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner”
Congratulations!!!!! That is so awesome! You did a fantastic job & I’m so glad you told me about the competition. I went about it the wrong way by starting new stuff also, but I did knit from stash exclusively & that was fantastic. Can’t wait to see all the awesome knits after they’ve had a bath! No go have a celebratory margarita 😉
