Stash Whether you feel a sense of national pride or screw your nose up as you are already sick of hearing about it, there is no escaping the fact that the olympic games are coming here to the U.K. in 2012. So using that as my inspiration I had two big problems to solve:

1 – Creative block – start something, get bored, it goes wrong, start something else, knit something I will never wear, start something else… & so on – its been driving me nuts lately!

2 – Stash intervention – the basket in the pic was just the start, I have five of those now plus 2 curver boxes, 2 shopping totes, 1 trunk all full & dont even venture behind the sofa…..

So the challenge I have set myself for the next month is to knit 100 meters a day as I have a lot of 50 gram balls of D.K. weight which is about that meterage – so a ball a day! 🙂

Please feel free to join in & do the same & let me know how you get along either here or on ravelry – I will be through those baskets in no time …….(she  hopes)
