Telepathic knitting – if I knit as much as I think about knitting, just imagine the projects that I could complete!
Alas, life seems to get a bit in the way sometimes. Not that I’m whining, just that the knitting doesn’t seem to move as fast when you don’t pick it up as much. We’ve been running on the weekends since the beginning of May – which means lots of time in the car with me as the driver. I know some people enjoy driving, but I am not one of them. I was
whining saying to my husband the other day that I just. Want. To be. In my house. Laundry, dishes, messes and all of it. Although, let’s be real, a glass of wine and knitting in my house sounds a whole lot better than laundry!
I wanted to give you an update on Stash Dash 2016. This will be my 3rd summer competing against myself for the most yardage I can finish. Stash Dash is an invention of The Knit Girllls podcast. You can read all the information about the start and finish dates (May 27-Aug 21) and the rules here. The rules state that both WIPs and new projects count, so everyone can participate.
For me this is a wonderful excuse to pull out some old projects and get working on them. Or, realize that I hate the project and never want to see it again. In which case, I can rip it out and find another project to love. I’m actually pretty excited about freeing up some of the beautiful project bags that I have stashed in drawers with projects half completed. If you’re a person that doesn’t have many unfinished objects laying around, you can use all new projects for the summer. You compete against yourself, so while I’m a pretty competitive person and love the challenge, you might just want to be a little more loosey goosey about it.
I’m starting a thread on the Knitting Up North group on Ravelry to keep track of my finished objects. Feel free to join me there. You can either plan your way to finish a Stash Dash, or just use the thread to post on what you’re finishing.
Now, I’m off to take that nap!
