The More You Know: (

Random Announcements

  1. Summer Schedule Announcements:
    1. StashVlogs started on 4/21. I’ll have 3 per month on Wednesdays. I’ll be sure to remind everyone. These will be Live Premieres at 1PM ET. They will be abbreviated podcast episodes with what I have been working on & finishing. Maybe some life stuff… 
    2. StitchySilver Vlogs started on 5/5 and will be the first Wednesday of every month through August. This will be the only time you will see my stitching from now until the September episode. I know myself. During the summer, I won’t want to stop finishing knitting/crocheting items. This at least makes me spend a few hours a month working on it. I may continue them after the summer, but we’ll play that by ear… 

 

KAL Breakdown

    1. Details
      1. At some point last year, I had realized that I was down to 3 more skeins of Desert Vista Dyeworks’ stripey yarn. As I have enough stripey yarn to get through a full year if I continue knitting a pair a month, I have decided to start an Along for those who like stripes of ANY kind.

  1. Dream Along 2021 
    1. Details
      1. I was dreaming of saying goodbye to 2020 something fierce by the end of the year. In an effort to literally dream 2020 away, I thought to host a new along in 2021 where I finally cast on projects I’ve been dreaming about starting. I also have been (literally) dreaming about finishing projects that I’ve had on the project for a long time. To this end, the Dream Along 2021 was born.
      2. This year will run all year.
      3. I’ll be using #sdldreameralong2021 on all Social Media.

      3. The main idea I had for this Along is to Start or Finish things that have been in your Queue (weither as UFOs or things you have been dreaming of making for years and haven’t gotten up the gumption to do so before. I’m looking at you Evenstar…). However, ANYTHING you finish in 2021 will count for this Along.
      4. A Few Notes: For this Along, you can enter your project multiple times. This is based on the length of time the project has been in your Queue.
