Stash Dash 2014

Yay!  La La of the Knitgirllls is continuing the tradition of doing a craft from stash marathon while she is on summer vacation.  I love trying to accomplish these stash dash goals.  This year it is 5000 meters.  I have been saving the toe of my rainbow tube socks until today, when Stash Dash officially begins.

I just finished one toe, and I am starting on the toe decreases of the second sock.

One of my goals this time around is to work through my fiber stash.  I am going to start with some very old bumps of Crown Mountain Farms.  They are 8 ounces each and are prepared as pencil roving.  I want to spin 3 ply yarns out of all four bumps.

Lots of stitching going on as well.  I have an intermittent finish.  I have (too) many new starts and progress on a couple of wips. 

Save The Earth

Treasure Hunt Bookshelf aka the epic cross stitch project - Page 3 completed.

Sherlock and The Door combo.

Mirabilia Bluebeard's Princess. I love beading, I did not expect to enjoy it this much.

I put this California Map on time out. I did some back stitching in the wrong color and it was a pain to pick out, yada yada.

I have one other new start that I have not even taken a picture of yet. I am trying Sullivan's embroidery floss on this one. So far I love it, zero knots or twists and the coverage is excellent. When this one is done it will look like this.
No quilting or sewing. I do want to sew a couple more cross stitch zippered project bags. I bought another Atenti bag, Blue Sue, from the Loopy Ewe for my frames and hoops. I bought a Namaste Hermosa bag for my cross stitch kits, magazines and booklets.


 Speaking of The Loopy Ewe, Camp Loopy 2014 starts June 1st and the theme for project one is a favorite book, movie or TV show.  I am going to knit another Traveling Woman Shawl, based on Angela Montenegro in the Bones TV Show.

  The other two Traveling Woman shawls I knit took three days each. I hope this one knits up as quickly. I am assigned to team Glamper 4. Several other Glamper 4 members are also planning to knit this shawl for project #1.
