Competitive stashbusting

Posted by Underground Crafter on August 1, 2012 | Short Link

My focus since Friday has been on busting stash with Ravellenic Games projects.  So far, I’ve made a lot of progress towards finishing another ribbed beanie for my Holiday Stashdown Challenge.

I just started decreasing for the crown.

I’m using two strands of Moda Dea Tweedle Dee, a discontinued, self-striping, bulky yarn, and size 15 circular needles.  This will be sort of a companion to this ribbed beanie I finished a few weeks ago.  I have two male cousins (brothers), and I’m sort of sure who is getting what, but not 100% decided yet.

I’m making very slow progress on my first pair of knitted socks.

I’ve found that the metal needles in the small size are bothering my hands.  I’m going to try and get a wood or bamboo set today after work and see if that helps me move a little faster.

I’m still reading How To Love Your Job Or Find A New One by Joanna Penn.  So far, I’m finding it really helpful.  If I can drag myself away from the Ravellenics for a little more time this week, I will probably be able to finish it and share a review.
