when worked up into fun (or not so fun) projects?
Stashdash is a fun challenge organised by the KnitGirlllspodcast.

Just like any fun challenge there are various goals – this year the choices included, 3k, 5k and for the organised dashers there was a 10k. The challenge includes WIP's so those in the know line up a whole lot of almost done projects for finishing during the 7 week challenge.
As a new comer this year I was very unprepared with only a couple of small projects on the needles at the beginning of the challenge, but a little crochet project put me in the running for the 5k so I just knitted through all the hours to make the goal a reality.

The rules are simple, there are no restrictions on using old yarn or finishing old projects, any yarn in your possession is considered stash, no matter that it came into your possession during the challenge.

I was pleased with my finish including finishing The Father's socks which pushed me over the finish line on the last day.

I could have made the challenge a whole lot easier by working on tried and tested patterns instead of playing around with new designs.
Next year I may even be ready with several WIP's lined up at the starting line.

|All together here - lots of squishy yarn fun and no serious dent in the stash|
Love me some yarny fun.
Hope your Wednesday is wonderful.
