    Well, I THOUGHT I was going to have a positive score, as I used up a skein crocheting the afghan I’m making for my niece, but THEN...Windsor, CT just got themselves a new yarn shop! It’s called Ewe & You Fiber Arts. I went to the grand opening, which was very exciting! I ended up buying a beautiful skein of yarn, so: WTD = 0 😱

    I had to frog and recrochet a lot of the Afghan squares I was working on, so no skein used up yet. Stashbuster Total: WTD +0 YTD -68

    Lots of work on the new afghan I’m working on, but not skeins used up yet. I was sure that I’d use up one crocheting squares on the way down to the beach today, but those Herrschners Worsted 8 skeins are enormous! So: WTD = 0

    A slightly better-looking picture.

    Well, I’ve completed the Granny Tree Skirt! It’s a tad ripple-y, but I’m hoping once I wash and stretch it out a bit, it will look better. Also, I imagine once it’s around a tree with presents, any ripples won’t be terribly noticable. The good news is that I have TONS of yarn left over! I may use it to make an afghan. However, I really need to get on the stick about continuing wiht my niece’s afghan for Christmas!

    No movement, but hoping for more when I do more work on my niece’s Afghan next week. I’m finishing the tree skirt and trying to figure out how to block acrylic. It’s not quite lying down flat. WTD = 0, YTD = -68

    STILL sewing together the tree skirt and putting on the border, but it’s coming along nicely. WTD = +0

    Sadly, no change, although I’m making progress on the Tree Skirt, and I’ve started on the Afghan for my niece. I think the extended SC is helping my short row issue. WTD = +0

    Row Gauge Woes

    I’m currently up against my old nemesis...row gauge (height). I can usually get gauge when it’s just a matter of stitches per inch (width). This is usually sufficient for any pattern where you just have to crochet “until X inches long”. However, my row height tends to be short. I’m working on a pattern where I have to crochet diagonal SC squares. Because my rows are too short, they’re coming out more like diamond shapes. If I go up a hook size, then the stitches per inch (width) is off. Does anyone have any good tips for making higher rows?

    I’m a big nothing this week, too. However, I’m just about ready to sew together the squares for my tree skirt and I’ve started the squares for my niece’s Afghan I’m making her for Christmas. So: WTD = 0

    Still trying to make headway with my Christmas Tree Skirt. I thought I was going to use up a skein with my sweater, but that didn’t happen, so: Stashbuster Total: WTD +0 YTD -68

    Still slogging away with the tree skirt! I didn’t use up any skeins this week, so: WTD: 0
