    2016 Stashbusting CAL

    Wow. It's been over a month since I posted. I didn't even realize it had been that long... Anyhoozle... A few weeks ago, I found a couple skeins at the Salvation Army Store. They looked lonely, and even though I didn't have anything in mind for them, I went ahead a bought them and brought them home with me. Then, a friend of mine was over for some anti-anxiety conversation, and fell in love with those two little skeins, so I told her to take them home with her. Apparently, the reason I bought them was so she could have them - and I knew the reason would be a great one! There hasn't been any other yarn acquired or used since I last posted... so - my score for the month of April is... WTD 0 YTD +12

    Happy Easter! We had Favorite Book Character dress up day at school this week, and I went as the Lorax. I made a hat for the outfit, which used up 3 skeins of yarn (those tiny skeins of eyelash/feather type yarn) and rolled a skein down to a small ball... Then last night that small ball ended up all strung out and outside ~ not exactly sure how that happened, but we had family here and extra kids, so some sort of nefarious scheme was probably afoot! My final score for the week is: WTD +8 I'm pretty sure my year score is: YTD +12 On my phone so no fancy text or bright colors...

    Guess what?!?! Go on, guess.... I hooked enough to use up countable yarn this week!!! I rolled a skein into a ball... No, it's not much. But it's SOMETHING - which is better than nothing, right? So, my big bright beautiful score is: WTD +1 week ending Valentine's Day Eve...

    I crocheted three rounds on my Tides of Change (only rounds 10, 11 and 12, so not too many stitches) only to check my progress by counting those not-too-many stitches and found that I completely forgot the increases in round 11... so, frogged the last two rounds that I had just put on there. Oh, well, it felt great to hook for a while anyway. Nothing used up, though. Again. WTD 0

    I was going to do something yarny today. I promise, I was. I have zero inspiration, so I can't tell you what that yarny thing might have been, but it's a moot point anyway because it never happened... Perhaps tomorrow. We shall see. I also have things I need to do for my job tomorrow, and I suppose that needs to happen first. LOL WTD 0

    I actually crocheted a few stitches today while in the car on our way to my mother in laws' 75th birthday celebration! Not enough to count, but those are the first stitches of the year for me, so I'm excited about that... Using my phone, so nothing fancy font-wise. WTD 0 zero zilch nada zip
