Hey everyone!!!  The 2019 dates for Stash Dash have been announced. It will start on May 24th and be done on August 24th. I’ve already been making plans for which items I want to finish during the Summer. I’m sure I’ll add more later, but as of right now… Here are what my plans are, for now…

    1. May DVD Socks (462 yards) – Minerva Quiddy Socks pattern
    2. June DVD Socks (462 yards) – Weasley Homesetead pattern
    3. July DVD Socks (462 yards) – Hermoine’s Every Day  pattern
    4. August DVD Socks (462 yards) – Hermoine’s Secret pattern

 

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!
