Stash Dash 2014

The Knit Girllls are hosting Stash Dash 2014 and I’m excited to be participating this summer.  I’m always looking for a way to reduce the WIPs and yarn/fiber stash.  And that’s exactly the goal of the group activity.  Basically, you’re dashing to use up 5K of yarn.  That’s 5,468 yards!  Oh my    🙂

The rules are so, so simple.

  • Knit/crochet/spin/weave from stash! Every yard of yarn used from 5/23 to 8/7 counts toward your goal.
  • If you finish a WIP after 5/23, regardless of when you started, you get to count the yardage for the entire project.

Contemplating 5,468 yards makes me twitch just a bit.  I’m not entirely sure I can meet the goal, but it’s going to be fun trying.

Picture 1Here’s my little ticker to chart my progress.  Notice that I’m already 473 yards toward my goal.  That’s because the Dangling Conversation shawl is finished.
