Now You’re Just Talking CRAZY PANTS! – Maybe not… 5K it is!

Hello everyone!  I know it’s been awhile since I’ve had an update here.  Suffice to say, I’ve been busy.  I have to apologize to those that want to see the progress on the Tetris Blanket.  I have none other than a few more pieces sewn together.  That’s fine, for RIGHT NOW…  I have plans for you yet, blanket.  Believe you, me!

If you aren’t a member of The KnitGirllls Army, why aren’t you?  Since I’ve started to watch those ladies, I find myself wanting to try more and more new things.  I’ve tried lace weights, extra-sparkly yarns, lace designs, and many many more firsts for me with my knitting.

Starting today (May 22nd, as of 12:01AM EDT) and going until 11:59PM on August 14th, yours truly will be participating in my first KnitGirllls Stash Dash.  I have a goal of 5K.  When I was making my plans last night, I kept thinking that I was talking crazy.  My plans allow for up to 8,091 meters of yarn to be knit in that time frame.  I hope to get every one of those meters done, but I know myself.  There will be times where I don’t hit my goals with this thing…   If I get 5K, I’ll be happy.  If you want to follow my progress, I’ll be posting updates and pictures here.  I’ll also be using #stashdash2015 on Twitter and Instagram.  The good news, is as long as you complete or bind off the project during this time frame, the yardage counts.  This makes it a bit easier for me, as I have a few new blankets to make for a few clients.  If I counted everything I’m REALLY want to finish, then I WILL be talking “CRAZY PANTS.”

Here are my goals:

1) Purple Hogwarts Express Shawl – 570 yards

Done: As of 8PM 5/22.

DSC07472 DSC07474

2) Tetris Blanket – 3,094 yards

3) Yellow Brick Road Shawl – 510 yards

*!*!*!*

New note, 7/20:  I had hoped to have a total of 8,949.50 total yards (or 8183.42 meters), before any hats that I would make in this timeframe as well.  Currently, I’m shy 1,094.1 off my 5K.  🙂  Getting there…

Note 7/22:  Strike through for my planning session was something I changed today, based on the fact that I have more than enough yardage for my 5K without them, besides the fact that I realize I will NEVER get them done before the end of #stashdash2015.

Note 728: With this last 765 yards, I have completed my 5K!  YAY!  Now to keep finishing things, because I have THAT MUCH on the needles right now…

Post StashDash2015 goal Items:  I have a few, just because I’ve been in a “Finish It” kind of mood…

Here are the items I finished that won’t really be counting toward my StashDash2015 totals (as I only set the goal at 5K…), but I still finished during that time:

A oversized washcloth that is meant to be a matching towel to go in the rest of the washcloths in my co-worker's baby basket. In Purple, to match the Mother's décor for her new daughter...

Okay!  Uncle!  I’m calling it.  I may have until Friday, but I think I’ve gone enough over my goal for one year.  I’ll have to up it to 10K, as I think I knit enough…  LOL…

Here is my final totals for StashDash2015 everyone!  Hope all my fellow knitters had as much fun with it as I did!  Happy Knitting All!
