The great 2012 MAD DASH

AS the counter below indicates i will be joining some other ravelers for the stash down group 2012 mad dash . We have 6 weeks to knit 12000 yards. Woa!. I am not that mad and have elected to participate as a team. I have committed to 4k yardage which is about twice what i would knit in 6 weeks let alone tax season.

SO why am I doing this? I guess for the sheer fun of it. I have looked at my stash and found about 550o yards of feltable wool ; thats about 25% of my stash. SO my plan is to pick some slippers, some feltable bags and some feltable kitty beds and hopefully be able to double strand etc. Along the way I hope to use some odds and ends eyelash , some patterns in my library and laugh alot!.

Come watch our progress or better yet , join in the fun!

Addicted to lace

Well I finished the marathon of scarves the 2011 advent calendar scarf KAL. I finished on Dec 28, blocked and ready to wear. Not too bad. It was such a great project, start to finish . Not sure if it was the project itself or knitting it with so many from around the world that made the experience so memorable.

I broke my cold sheeping and ordered before Dec 31 6 skeins of lace yarn. I thought I would make another and possibly the 2010 version . Now there is another KAL in the Ravlery beginners lace group for an estonian scarf. I want to knit them all!, lol

Thanks Kristin for giving us all such a great gift!
