This week I am a woman on a mission. I mostly talk about all of the plans I have for Stash Dash. 7719 yards of plans.

To the left is the alive dogwood to the left is the dead one. Look how amazing the oak tree looks in the back yard!

7791 yards after the Nuvem

The trunk of the dogwood tree, saved to be turned into spindles.

Stash Graph!

I finally had a chance to sit down, weigh my leftovers, and figure out where I stand.

I have slightly less yarn, slightly more skeins, so input was about output for the past few months, who knew?

When I finish the strandwanderer my lace will decrease significantly. I don't have plans at this point to get more. Wollmeise Lace is very hard to get a hold of currently, and for the foreseeable future. I have 2 whole blue skeins, and I showed all of my partials more or less on the podcast.

My stash dash plans will make a dent in the sock yarn, a little bit. I really want to do scrappy socks again, since my scraps are a little out of control at this point.

Random and All Over the Place:
