Let me just say I’ve been knitting and crocheting my little fingers to the bone to keep pace for this year’s stashdash (details here). So far I have four – count them – FOUR finished objects!!! Wootie woot!!! Here are the deets:

Currently I’m at 2,487 yards (45.5% complete). I’m super stoked!
I’m working on two other projects at the moment, my Haiku shawl & my Garter Squish blanket.
The Haiku shawl is working up quite nicely but is kinda slow. This is mostly due to a few of the repeat rows just being tons and tons of chains and single crochets that doesn’t add much to progress. But it’s going to be totally worth all of the work – I can tell. It’s going to block out like a freakin’ champ and all that detailed work is going to be the business!
And let’s just say my Garter Squish is going to be the shit.
Let it be said, what was initially holding me back from starting this project sooner was twofold: 1) I felt that I should finish my Washington Square Cardigan before starting another large project (even though the color I was using was looked HORRID next to my skin tone) and 2) I couldn’t settle on what yarns/colors to use.
Well let me tell you! Frogging my Washington Square Cardigan squashed all that shit!
BOOOOM! Sweater WIP no longer an issue! Oh, and look at that…I now have my main color yarn which magically makes picking out the other colors so much easier.
As a previous hairstylist would always say, let’s do the damn thang.
