Is anyone else knitting along with Wendy Johnson’s Summer Mystery Shawlette? I started mine late, so there’s not much to share (4.5 rows), but it’s already feeling scrumptious in Berroco Ultra Alpaca Fine in Turquoise Mix. I’ve had this stashed for so long, earmarked for a project it became apparent I was never going to knit. So this KAL popped up with perfect timing. Check out the original post here and the Rav discussion thread here if you haven’t already!

ALSO: Is anyone else partaking in The Knit Girllls‘ “Stash Dash 5k”? It sounds really cool and exactly what my stash needs: you count every yard of yarn used from 5/27 to 8/15 to try to get to 5K (5,468 yards) of yarn! It seems daunting, but I love the idea. And lucky for me, WIP’s finished after the start date count! :) Check out the discussion page here.
