Can you believe it took over a year to make a single pair of socks?
So, to update the fall stashdash:
Glass Slipper - Match a pattern you already have with a yarn you already have and put them into a project bag to surprise yourself with in 2019
“Are You Lonesome Tonight? - Complete TWENTY rows on a second WIP
“You’ve Lost that Lovin’ Feeling” - Complete SEVEN rows on a third WIP
“We’ve Only Just Begun” - update or embellish something you already have: crochet cuffs on a pair of jeans? Ribbon embroidery? A new hat or scarf to match an old coat? Create a look you love.
“At Last” - finish a SECOND WIP (or project if you have no WIPs)
“Dreams Can Come True - finish a THIRD WIP (or project if you have no WIPs)
“Embraceable You” - sort through ONE yarn bin, drawer, or bag to remember what great yarn you already have
Optional Bonus Categories:
“Wouldn’t it Be Nice?” - wrap up a second project bag for yourself and wrap it up for your 2019 birthday
Done - socks
“My Ideal” - repeat any of the challenges THREE times, one for each month of the challenge
“Crazy” - repeat ALL of the “row count” challenges THREE times
Now I'm torn--I have fabulous new yarn to play with, but I also have other categories that could be checked off for the stashdown if I work on existing WIPs. Either way, I get a sweater, so that's a big win/win, but is it wrong to be hoping that there's a serious cold that strikes my workplace this fall so I can spend a few days just knitting...........?
