Pictures in passing #2

Today I want to share a picture from my veranda with you.
I couldn't find a pot for my new lavender, so I found one of my big mugs for it to stay in.
And I'm pretty happy with the arrangement! 
The mug has been in my brothers basement for a few years, and probably haven't been used for way longer than that.

Pictures in passing #1

I was recently inspired to start taking pictures again, thanks to The Playful Day podcast.
They won't always be pretty, and certainly not professional, but I enjoy doing it. 
So here is my first one. 
I hope you like it. 

This is a stream by the place I'm working this week.

Prepping for Stash Dash!

So, The Knit Girllls are once again hosting Stash Dash.
And this year I decided to join!
This year there will be 3K, 5K, 7K, 10K and 15K levels.

I'm aiming for the 5K, hoping for 7K, but will probably end up at 3K.
But we'll see.
It is after all 89 days of knitting. Much can happen in that time, and I might surprise myself.
Stash Dash starts May 27th and ends August 21st, and the good thing, for me at least, is that I don't have to pick a finish line until the end is near.

But I do have a list of things that I want to knit during Stash Dash.
So far that list has 13 items, but I might add more to it as I finish some.
4 are old WIPs, 1 are a sweater I have to fix, 1 are a my travel knitting, and 7 are new projects that needs to be done in preferably under a month.

  1. Pinson sweater. Need to redo the i-cord edge around the neck.
  2. Oline-hat for baby girl. Almost done, just have to knit the last row, bind off, do the i-cords and pompoms.
  3. Oline-hat for Andrea.
  4. Go'klompen cardigan for baby girl. Almost down to the arms right now.
  5. Go'klompen pants for baby girl.
  6. Flora top for Andrea.
  7. Tube socks. One almost done.
  8. Surya shawl. Am about one skein in.
  9. Forecast cardigan. Arms, buttonband and bottom part of ribbing to go.
  10. Colorful crochet blanket. Probably 2-3 repeats to go.
  11. Breezy baby blanket. Maybe half way on this. Depends on how long I want it.
  12. Mystik spiral socks.
  13. Smartypants.
I think these projects will take me to about 5K, but I'm not really sure how many meters each project will take. So I' doing the best I can to knit on a few of these projects before Stash Dash starts.

I think this will be fun!!
