  1. I’ve had a wild and crazy yarn week! I got my final yarn shipment in for the Seaside Sampler Afghan, and I went down to our LYS and bought 3 giant skeins of yarn for a knit-along they are going to be doing (via Zoom). I suspect that I may be shooting the moon... 😈 😊 🐑
  2. Well, I didn’t use up any skeins, so: WTD = 0 I’m almost done with the Seaside Sampler Afghan! The last bit will be the border. I still have to figure who I’m giving it to! 😎
  3. Well, it's an odd one this week! For the week ending August 1, 2020: Gold Medal: PBLKNP +2 Holding Steady: Ellie 13 0 greyhoundgrandma 0 howieann 0 TexasPurl 0 No Shoot the Moon this week! Congrats to all!
  4. I managed to make it through a skein! I’ll probably do the totals around Noon tomorrow. Stashbuster Total: WTD +2 YTD -54
  5. Me: The totals are looking like I shot the moon again. Spouse: Hasn’t it been a while since you did that? Me: I think it was only two weeks ago. Spouse: For you, that’s a lot...
  6. Oh, my...I have to adjust my totals. I just went through another skein this evening! Stashbuster Total: WTD -4 YTD -56
  7. You KNOW you’re getting old when...I announced at 6:00 pm (Saturday night) that I’m “breaking out the crocheting for the evening” and my spouse declared “time to PARTY ON DOWN!” I’ve been feverishly working on the Seaside Afghan, but I did get an influx of yarn in from Annie’s Attic, so: Stashbuster Total: WTD -6 YTD -58
  8. Looks like I’ll be in the negatives this week, as my latest Seaside Sampler Afghan monthly shipment arrived! However, I’m making good progress.
  9. I’ve been frantically working on the Seaside Afghan before the next Annie’s Attic installment come in. No skeins used up, though, so: WTD = 0
  10. I finished my Woodland Throw! Not sure why the picture uploaded sideways...
  11. I’m at the home stretch on the Woodlands Stripe Throw! I’m doing the crab stitch border, which is ghastly on my arthritis, so I’m taking frequent breaks. Then I need to play catchup on my Seaside Sampler Afghan before the next Annie’s Attic yarn shipment comes in. So, this week I managed to use up a skein. WTD = +2
  12. We have the opposite issue here! Not enough rain. I'm hoping we'll get more this week for the garden.
  13. I still am working on my Woodland Stripes afghan—I’m ALMOST done. However, no skeins used up, so: WTD = 0
  14. I see TexasPurl beat me to the totals! I’m hoping to use up more stash this week with my afghan. 😎
  15. I'm probably going to post the scores around 10:30 tomorrow morning. I was doing well until my step-daughter came by our place and dropped off yarn! She's been suffering from carpel tunnel, so she can't crochet for a while. I feel badly for her...but I got more yarn... So, I'm at WTD = -10, and YTD = -54 I believe this is the week we have to post our YTD scores as well?
