  1. Oh, no! I’ll have to make a note to do the totals next week. 🤣
  2. It’s a really nice LYS. The owner crocheted before she learned to knit, so she was determined to create a store that’s welcoming to crocheters as well as knitters. She even named the store WITHOUT the word “knit” ...Ewe & You in Windsor, CT.
  3. Oh, good, I appear to be in time. I went to our LYS’s “Local Yarn Shop” day, which had a mini-socially-distanced fiber festival with four local dyers. I found some nice sock yarn and some yarn for a shawl (and had a ball catching up with my fellow crocheters and knitters), so: WTD = -6 YTD = -20
  4. Nothing used up this week, but I finally got started on my Navaho-Inspired Afghan for my friend! Stashbuster Total: WTD +0 YTD -14
  5. Scores for the week ending 4/3/2021! Gold Medal Winner: Inkked0317 +18 Holding Steady! Ellie 13 0 greyhoundgrandma 0 PBLKNP 0 pineknott 0 Shoot the Moon Winner: NO ONE THIS WEEK! Happy Easter, all!
  6. I’ll more than likely do the totals tomorrow after 10:30 am. I’ve been having issues with my tendinitis, so I didn’t use up any skeins this week. I’m hoping to be better next week, as I’m anxious to start my new afghan project.
  7. Oh, my! I don’t think I’ve ever shot the moon for the week AND the month. I will need to make a note to do the scores next week. 😎
  8. The Herrschners order for the Navajo-Inspired Afghan came in, which has 9 skeins. I used up one more on the sweater I’m working on (now I’m going to have to weave in 154-odd ends - I can’t wait), so: Stashbuster Total: WTD -16 YTD -14
  9. Nothing used up, but I haven’t gotten my Herrschners order yet, so: Stashbuster Total: WTD 0 YTD +2
  10. Ellie, I’m so sorry! That must have been frightening. I remember ages ago my mother turned her ankle in a pothole crossing the street in our small town, and tore her Achilles’ tendon. Like I said, it was a small town, and back then people’s dogs wandered all over the place. She said that her one comfort in all this was that the big neighborhood black lab-mix was licking her face and stayed with her until help arrived.
  11. I didn’t quite use up a skein, so: WTD = 0 Next week might be different, skein-wise. I used the Herrschners gift certificate my friend gave me and ordered the Navaho-Inspired Afghan Kit. My friend doesn’t know it, but I’m going to make the afghan for him! I think it will go nicely with their home decor.
  12. I’m so sorry, Ellie!. I adored my aunt and it was horrendous when she passed away. It was years ago, but I still miss her. I’ll keep you in my prayers.
  13. Yesterday was my birthday, and I was THOROUGHLY spoiled by my Sweetums! I got three knitting and crocheting books, and 5 skeins of Red Heart “With Love” yarn that I’d put on my Amazon wish list. It was so funny, because for the life of me I could not remember WHY I’d put those 5 skeins on, until I remembered that I wanted to make a reader’s wrap for a friend. So: Stashbuster Total: WTD -10 YTD +2
  14. I’m still working on the cardigan, and I haven’t quite used up another skein, so: Stashbuster Total: WTD +0 YTD +12
  15. I used up another skein on my cardigan! It’s going pretty quickly, as it’s a thicker yarn. So: WTD = +2
