As I predicted, my proposed knitting projects for 2019 has changed now that the Eat.Sleep.Knit 2019 Yarnathon KALs and badges have been posted. This year the theme is Travel Around the
World. I am on Team Elephelt. So much for my stashbusting this year, Day 1 I placed an order for several of this year's exclusive yarnathon colors.
Q1 KAL requirement is to knit any pattern by designer Ambah O'Brien. I cast on the Mendia Hat using yarn I had in my stash.
I had started the ribbing and had to take dog #1 out. When I came back in, hubby told me dog #2 apparently didn't like how my knitting looked and made his own mark on it.
I ripped it out, got new needles, and started over. Now I make sure to put it away/zip up my project bag if I walk away from it.
To get the maximum stars for the KAL, I need to knit a minimum of 2001 yards. My current plans are to knit the following:
- Mendia Hat (stash yarn) - ~220 yards
- Jacinta Shawl (stash yarn) - ~750 yards
- Miso (stash yarn) - ~ 840 yards
