Important Schedule Changes

Hello everyone! As many of you know, I’ve been participating in Stash Dash this year. What this means, is that I tend to record every week over the course of the Summer. Since Stash Dash is now over, I usually go down to a bi-weekly show, and down to once monthly show over the course of the Winter. I’ve decided this year, that I will be changing up what I normally do. What follows is my recording schedule up until Stash Dash 2019 (because SPOILERS, I’m participating next year too…)

Update 5/19: Hi everyone! If you haven’t heard on my podcast, I’m throwing down for Stash Dash again this year.  The countdown is on!!!

This year, I’m just going to try to finish as many of my WIPs (Works In Progress) as I possibly can between May 25th and August 27th. I’m not going to throw in a set goal until the end. Don’t get me wrong. I’d LOVE to try to shoot for 15K again. But, I was noting that I was SUPER stressed the entire time. I’m not about that life this year. Sorry.

So, at last count, I have 48 WIPs. Too many. That’s what’s stressing me out the most. So, to help with this, I have come up with a list of projects I REALLY want to finish by the end of Stash Dash. I’ll list them here, and keep you updated on what I finish during that timeframe.

 

Update 6/22: I’ve been a busy bee since Stash Dash Began. I have finished 10 projects, for a total of 2,816.3 yards or 2,575.23 meters.

  2. May’s SS Socks
  3. Cotton Candy Sock Blank Socks
  4. May’s Charity Hats

  7. M Needs Warm Legs
  8. Jodi, We’re Podcasting!!!
  9. May’s Washcloths
  10. June’s Washcloths

 

Update 8/3: Sorry, It’s been a bit since I came by to update you on my progress!  I have 10 new projects. I am now at a total of 9,227.2 yards or 8,437.35 meters.

The More You Know:

  1. Test Knitters. Last call.
    1. As I mentioned before, I’ve been spending some quality time with the pattern I’ve been writing. I think it’s just about there. I just need to finish my samples and make sure the pictures are added to the pattern. Then it’s all up to my wonderful test knitters. If you’d still like to test knit my pattern, it DOES knit up quick. Any yarn weights are fine, although I’d like a tester for DK/Sport/Worsted weight, if possible. Any Skill level knitter is fine. It’s a simple knit, I promise! Please shoot me an e-mail at silversdreamland@gmail.com, and I’ll be willing to let you test it. Deadline will be Sunday the 26th of August.
