In Case You Were Wondering

This is what my needles looked like last night at the start of Stash Dash 2015 (no, not all these projects are on the sidebar or on Ravelry because I did a lot of casting on this week and didn't feel like putting them up everywhere they need to go...I will get there at some point in the near future...).
This was my pre-dash yardage...for the year. I have not even knit 2000 meters (in FOs) this the five months that have already gone past. Stash Dash is 2 months and twenty some odd days. I'm hoping to make it to a 5k. This could get interesting.
Since last night, I have casted-off an  item and cast-on two more to replace it (I cast-off my BRQ square and put a new one on the needles and then also cast on a baby burp cloth for an upcoming community baby shower) so the yardage has jumped up by a grand whole 59 meters. Still, I'll take what I can get.
I decided to include a close-up of the five pairs of socks I've got running at the moment. All but one are first socks. All but one are still on the leg. I've been chatting in the Stash Dash forums with another knitter and there's a possibility that i will be attempting to finish 15 pairs of socks before August 15 (I'm counting baby socks I'm thinking of making for the shower...she is not).
Last but not least is a picture of the four blankets I currently have going-two are piece blankets (hexipuffs and BRQ squares) and two are just knit till I run out of yarn. Hoping Stash Dash might given me the motivation to finally finish the Block and Tackle blanket.

Who else is dashing? What are your plans? Good luck!!!


  1. I love the pattern on the top left sock ---- the one with the diamond looking pattern. SO cool!

    Good luck with your Stash Dash. Sounds like you are making good progress.

    1. Thanks, Dee! Business Casual-I love this sock and I love the yarn. I am so happy when I actually work on it...just for some reason, it is never the project to jump in to my hands so it has once again been languishing for awhile.
