From the Armchair 

Update on 2015 goals
  • Knit from my well curated stash:
    • Start of year- 96 skeins in Stash.
    • As of Episode 63- used up 8 from stash and 4 new skeins
    • Use #Stashdownthrowdown on InstaGram if you want to play along
  • Challenge myself more: no update
  • Publish at least 2 if not more patterns in 2015 & actively work on designs every week.
    • I am actively working on a new design that I’m excited to share soon!
  • Knit for me (meaning knit at least 10 more things): to date I have knit 3 hats + 2 pair of socks= 5 items for me!

Books I’ve Read:

Events

Tune in to see if you won a party in the Pigskin Party KAL!
Marathon Spring Cleaning  – runs from  March 1, 2015 to April 20, 2015

Goal: Use as much leftover/ scrap yarn as you can during this time.  Only scrap/ partial skein yardage counts.

Along with your Cast-On post must be a photo of the leftover/scrap yarns you will be using.  You will keep one continual post through the KAL – updating with each new project and keeping track of total leftover / scrap yardage used.

Prizes to be announced soon!

 

We have opened a Chat Thread in Ravelry forum to discuss about project ideas. In Lisa’s first post I’ve linked to a number of different patterns that will work well for scraps.  If you have other ideas, come chat in the thread and I’ll keep adding to the list.
