Stash Dash – aka Crazy Knitting Goals

Stash Dash has just kicked off and I’m going to participate this year. Stash Dash is a 3 month knitting event hosted by The Knit Girllls where participants knit/crochet/spin etc as much of their stash as they possibly can. The rules are pretty flexible; which is fine, because you’re only completing against yourself.

I’m going to set myself the goal of using 5k of my stash, which seems like a small goal in comparison to the 15k+ cateogory, but I’m being realistic. If I complete my epic crochet granny stripe blanket, I’ll have reached my goal and then some. I’ll have used up the self-striping sock yarn I couldn’t use in socks, and I’ll have finished this long term project, hooray!

But I also have some other ‘crazy’ goals. I want to finish Wool & Honey before Bendigo

and I’m also resurrecting this project… I’m hoping to have it finished in time to wear to Bendigo… just 2 months to go!

This sweater began whilst taking an Improvised Sweater class with the fabulous Anna Maltz more than 3 years ago (!). It came to a halt when I didn’t like where the lace body was heading. I have a new plan now and I will rip back to the end of the yoke.

It is a sweater that has the right amount of ‘loud’ that you can only get away with at a sheep and wool show, but I’m also hoping to wear it amongst the muggles too.

  1. Just wondering why you couldn’t use the self-striping yarn for socks and I liked lace bit. Love the colour. Very pretty jumper…super cool.

    1. This self striping sock yarn has no nylon in it. I found out the hard way that I definitely need nylon in my socks for them to last 😦

      I’ve got some ideas for this sweater, I’m sorry but the lace is gone!
