    I’ve gone back to the socks as my stepdaughter’s birthday is early next month, so I want to get them done by then. So, no skeins used up this week. WTD = 0, YTD = +45

    Wow! I got the Gold Medal Winner again! I’m hoping to use up more this coming week on my shrug. 😎

    I gained a skein for my birthday...a zauberball for socks! I also managed to part with a few balls of sock yarn to a friend. She’s making a pattern that requires small amounts of yarn. So: WTD = +5 YTD = +45

    I managed to part with some skeins this week! We have an elderly friend who, come to find out, knits! She’s on a fixed income, so can’t afford much for yarn. I went through my stash and found 15 skeins to give her that I thought she’d like. She was thrilled! So: Stashbuster Total: WTD +30 YTD +40

    I’ve been feverishly working on the cocoon/shrug this week, and managed to use up another skein. My back is finally feeling better. WTD = +2 YTD = +10 😎

    I managed to use up a skein! It did help to be able to rest this afternoon. I had a tiny chaperone to make sure I stayed put! Stashbuster Total: WTD +2 YTD +8

    I’m trying to use up a skein by this evening! I’ve been laid up with a bad back (AGAIN), so I’ve had time to get a lot of crocheting done. I think I’ve pinpointed the culprit to being my work laptop rolling case, which when I lift it up and down steps, into the car, etc. is VERY heavy. Also, I’ve been bringing in wood and I think I’ve been loading up too much in the bag. As much as I want to think I’m really strong, I don’t think I am! 😠 😢 😡

    I’m happy to report that we’ve weathered the big storm in CT today. We are in northern CT, so we didn’t have the major ice and power outages. I think we got about 5” of snow. We had ice and freezing rain later, but no issues...other than shoveling it all! 🤣

    Well, no skeins used up after all. I’ve been working on the scarf and the shrug. The snow is just starting. I’m praying the weather people are going to be wrong about all the possible ice. 🥶 😬 ⛄️ ❄️

    I’m going to wait to post, as I’m hoping to use up another skein this evening. We have a humdinger of a storm coming to CT tonight and tomorrow, so I’ll be cozy indoors doing my knitting and crocheting. I’m praying we don’t lose power!

    I’ve been largely sidelined this week due to a horrendous cold. I went to the doctor, thinking I had strep throat, but it’s just a cold, thankfully. The beautiful thing was that my doctor ordered me to take the next day OFF. 🤣 The irony is that, due to not schlepping out to do things after work or evenings, I’ve had oodles of time to crochet, so I’ve managed to go through a skein working on the shrug. WTD = +2
