STASH DASH!

Time of year for the Stash Dash -Hosted by The Knit Girllls podcast.  Loads of levels but I’m going to stick with the 5K (or 5,468 yards), it’s been a challenge for me every time I’ve attempted.  Starts May 27th so no more FOs between now and then.  Ends August 21st, which means it’s 12 weeks long plus 2 days.  Need to be finishing 455 yards a week.  Game planning for Stash has begun.  May move me on from my Hat Addiction…

Looking at my Unfinished Objects or hybernating projects…
The candidates include:

  • The two hats currently on the needles for combine for about 700 yards
  • Tristan’s Save the baby whales! by Sargantana Formenterenca it’s about 3/4 of the way finished.  For around 750 yards.
  • Feeling Shawl-ish Phi by Jennifer Dassau is about 1/2 completed.  For around 650 yards.
  • The Schooner View Foolproof by Louise Zass-Bangham it’s about 1/4 of the way finished.  For around 300 yards.
  • The Second Luna Viridis by Hilary Smith Callis with Claudia Handpaints is about 40% completed, for a total of 375 yards.
  • That’s Good Planning Socks with Fish Lips Kiss Heel by Sox Therapist are 15% completed, for a total of 375 yards.
  • Grey Tweed Socks Wendy Knits Toe-up Slip-Stitch Heel by Wendy D. Johnson are 20% completed for a total of 350 yards.
  • Second round of Frankenfingers (fingering-weight version) by Elizabeth Green Musselman are just begun at 5% but would need 350 yards.
  • Vodka Gimlet by Thea Colman is 20% finished and languishing for years.  Would use about 1,500 yards.

With the sweat0er I’m about 200 yards short.  Without it 1,700 yards.  Conclusion, I need to knit a sweater.  Maybe cast one on today.
