Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner

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

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 – 200 yds – DONE Lydia Cowl

Lydia Cowl Longer & Better – 380 yds – DONE – again, photos of this to come as I get it bathed and beautiful. 

Ponchini – 330 yds – DONE  ponchini

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.

  1. 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 😉
