Starting Stash Dash 2014!

WiP: Boot Cuffs for a friend; Calligraphy Cardigan

All right, so here's the plan for the summer!

I am participating in The Knit Girllls Stash Dash 2014 (you require a Ravelry account to access this forum).

What Stash Dash means is that any project from May 23 to August 7 that you bind off is counted as using up "stash."

To be qualified for the prizes in this, you have to bind off a total of 5K of yarn, or 5,468yd.

This includes spinning, knitting, crocheting, etc.

This is what I'm at currently: <a href="http://www.TickerFactory.com/counter/wFMv8q2/">

So, 915/5468. I'm going to put that ticker at the top of the page, so help cheer me on, please!!

My current plans for the rest of the yardage are:

Another pair of boot cuffs (cabled) (Current carry-around project)
Want to finish: Cozy Calligraphy Cardigan ( Calligraphy Cardigan ) - ~2,016 yd

Want to do:
My Hope - 450 yd
Owls - ~830-850 yd
Pont Neuf - ~2,048 yd

Without boot cuffs = Approx. 6,259yd. Yeah! Let's keep our fingers crossed! I would only really need to do the My Hope and the Pont Neuf to reach my goal. But we'll see. I REALLY want that Owls sweater, especially since I have the perfect yarn AND I knit one for my future niece for Christmas last year...It would be super fast. And considering that we're driving out to Victoria for the get away right after the wedding, Pont Neuf/Owls would be perfect to carry with me!!

I may also be working on another top for Florida, too, though. I just found this one: Feather & Fan Ribbed Tee by Judy Croucher

But the benefit to the other three is that I have the stats for it already...And the Feather & Fan Tee would need new yarn...Although I'm going to put it on my list for my birthday. It might have to wait until after the wedding, though. We'll see. haha

Are any of you participating in Stash Dash?

Please keep your fingers crossed for me that I make it!

Katie =^..^=
