6/13:

I have an extensive list of WIPs, so making decisions on which ones I wanted to finish this year for Stash Dash was (and still is, if we’re being honest) a bit of an issue. I’m going include my CURRENT plan of attack.

 

 

As I am currently sitting at 13,966 yards or 12,770.6 meters at only 20 days into Stash Dash, I have gone ahead and thrown my hat into the “15K or above” goal marker on the Stash Dash forums.

5/18: I  can’t wait to get started this year! I’ll see you after the start of Stash Dash.

Until Next Time, Happy Crafting!

#45 Is Awesome!

Hello again everyone! We’re nearing the end of today’s FO parade, so YAY!!!  I called FO #45 “Infinitely Awesome.”

I used the Upstairs Downstairs: A Cowl in Three Sizes” pattern  by Paula Emons-Fuessle. I used Bernat Baby Sport in the “White” colorway and Hayfield Baby Blossom DK “366” colorway. This got me 500 yards for Stash Dash. I REALLY love the way the variegated colorway played with the cowl pattern. What do you think?

 

Thanks for reading all my FO posts. I know there were a few things I finished over the past month or so… My updated Stash Dash post should be posted sometime later today…

Until Next Time!

#44’s The Happiest! :)

Hello again everyone!!! FO #44 is what I called “Hermione’s Happiest Secret.”

These were my July’s (Desert Vista Dyeworks) DVD socks. I used “The Happiest Place On Earth”. I also decided that I was going to mix two different patterns. The first was “Hermione’s Secret” pattern by Kat Johnson, and the second was “Vanilla Is The New Black” by Anneh Fletcher. I REALLY love how well the stripy sequence of the yarn plays with these two patterns. The heel from the second pattern fits my heel better than the one written into the first pattern.

What do you think?

 

Until Next Time!

#43 is MFM’s Turn!!!

Hello again! I called FO #43 “SSDGM & F’Politeness.”

This project was part of the “My Favorite Murder Mystery KAL” using the pattern name of the same name. I used Suburban Stitcher Sock’s “Triflers Need Not Apply” colorway.

I had SOOO much fun with this MKAL I really love the way the colorway plays with the patterning. I only wish my photography skills are better so I can show off JavaPurl’s wonderful genius.  What do you think?

 

Until Next Time!

#42 Is Everything!

Hello again everyone! I called FO #42 “Here Kitty Kitty.”

I mainly used the “Afterthought Socks” by LaLa of TheKnitgirlls, but ended up knitting them afterthought-everything style. This is where you knit a long tube and cut in or pre-plan the heels, toes, and cuffs. To this end, I cast on the toe, knit a tube, and used waste yarn to mark the heels and cuffs on each sock as I knit the tube. It was my first time trying to do an afterthought heel since the first ones I tried years ago… Those didn’t really work for my feet, and I haven’t tried them again until now…

I used Dream in Color Smooshy in the “Torchwood” colorway, as well as a SIngle Sock Blank by Gale’s Art in the “Here Kitty Kitty” colorway.

I REALLY love the way that these two combined. What do you think?

Until Next Time!

#41 Can Be Won

Hello again everyone! FO #41 is what I called “I Can Do The Can Can, Can You?”

These were my June’s DVD Socks. I used the “Moulin Rouge” colorway, as well as the “Hermione’s Everyday Socks” pattern.

I LOVE how these two combine together. Somehow, I managed to mostly keep the stripe sequence the same until the heel. What do you think?

 

Until Next Time!

#40’s Tipsy

Hello again everyone!!! FO #40 was what I called “Go Home Scarf! You’re Drunk!”

I made a simple garter stitch scarf for Emptyeye. This got me a total of 165 yards for Stash Dash. I used Lion Brand Da Vinci in the “Wine” colorway.

I love how the colors play together, and this was such a quick knit…  What do you think?

Until Next Time!
