Stash Dash 2015 officially begins today! Hosted on Ravelry by The Knit Girllls podcast group, rules and FAQs can be found here. 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.
- Knit/crochet/spin/weave from stash! Every meter of yarn used from 5/22 to 8/14 counts toward your goal.
- If you finish a WIP after 5/22, regardless of when you started, you get to count the total for the entire project.
There are three finish lines this year — 3K, 5K, or 10K and I’ll be dashing for 3K. That’s 3000 meters/3,281 yards.
And . . . I have my first FO. Miss Sappho is coming to visit again this summer and now she’ll have her very own bed.
Pattern :: Crochet Round Cat Bed by Humbug Designs
Yarn :: Loops & Threads Impeccable in fern, butterscotch and white
Hook Size N (9 mm)
This is a quick, fantastic stash busting project. I used 3 strands of yarn held together (the pattern calls for 4 strands) and added a couple of decrease rounds to the top to give it a little more shape. ~T~ and Sappho arrive tonight and we’ll see if she likes it.
So . . . that’s 546 yards of stash used and 166.7 meters counted for Stash Dash (only 1 strand counts). Yea!
Happy Friday, friends. Enjoy your weekend!
