Edit: So I had this post waiting to be finished for some time now. But instead of wasting more time trying to edit it and polish it, I’ll just get it out there now and start fresh with everything else.
Here we go with some of my newfound topics, in no particular order:
Can you hold this for a minute?: Well, this time, I have not actually put anything on hold, but rather have a serious case of finishitis. While not that much has been finished yet, I plan to do quite a lot of finishing soon. Why now? Well, I’ve been finally caught up in the StashDash fever. This year, the Knit Girllls host this event for the fourth time and I’ve been infected with that bug now, too.
So, any project that has been knit on and finished between May 22nd and August 14th 2015 counts (For a complete set of rules, check the Ravelry Group thread!). And, lo and behold, I have already 767 meters in, and another 350ish that I need to properly measure. So, I’m well above the 1k already and there are still two more months. Due to a link in the Rav thread, I also found a cute little tracker, that I’m adding here:
Right now, I’ll be aiming for the new 3k category, but who knows what knitting bug will get to me in the next 60-odd days. Maybe, I’ll even manage the 5k, with some strategising.
Whatcha Hearing?: In the last episode of Knitting a story, the hosts talk about hand hygiene and how often we fail to think about it. The entire episode is interesting, but if you’re looking for just that tidbit, fast forward to 21:50.
