  1. I may need an intervention. LOL I already had two yarn orders coming, 2 skeins and 3 skeins for a scarf/wrap. Now I've ordered 6 more for two pocket shawls. I really need to stop looking at patterns. https://www.yarnspirations.com/caron-crochet-color-block-pocket-shawl/CAC0126-030925M.html https://www.yarnspirations.com/red-heart-cabled-edge-crochet-wrap/RHC0126-028748M.html All that will put me at -49. I'm going to a "knitting" retreat next weekend, but I don't think I'll be using up that much yarn. LOL
  2. My Joann order came today....4 skeins for hats........-8.
  3. Cute animals! When I'm looking at things on etsy, details can be the decision maker. Ex: you give the length of the lion, but is that sitting or full length including legs. Good luck with the shop!
  4. Oh, no! I'm glad it wasn't any worse and nothing broken. I've gotten to the age that any fall just makes everything hurt the next day. Have fun with your family. It's great that you can zoom with the extended family, too.
  5. This is the last week of the month so please post WTD and YTD scores on Saturday. It's hard to believe the year is so close to being over. Happy Thanksgiving! I'm so thankful for my family and friends, our good health and all the good fortune in our lives.
  6. It's great when you can find something you want/need on sale!
  7. I'm having a few minutes of semi-quiet before DS comes over to fry the turkey and it's time to put the dressing in the oven. Then just heat the rolls and gravy. It's raining, so a perfect day to be inside eating and visiting with family. 2 of the grands have spent the night the last two nights. So now I'm caught up on sleepovers for all 4 for now. LOL
  8. I'll trade you, Mary Jo. It's 34, supposed to get to 56 today. I've got to get busy and finish up some cleaning. Two of the grands for coming for a sleep over tonight. Then a little cooking to do Wednesday. Painters are almost done. Had an internet problem--line got cut, but they came the same morning I called. Breakfast time now, I guess.
  9. Judy, I love the Christmas throw! The scarf is pretty, too. Looks like it's long enough for a double loop.
  10. Ooh, pretty! I'm intimidated by graphs. Maybe I'll give it a try some day.
  11. Scores for the week ending 11/20/21: Gold Medal Winner: howieann +6 Holding steady: PBLKNP 0 Shoot the Moon Winner: greyhoundgrandma -10
  12. Pam, that is so pretty! Love the colors. That technique has been on my to-do list for a while.
  13. I took it one step further in ordering the yarn to go with the patterns I liked. LOL At least I have learned to put the pattern with the yarn when it comes in, so that next year when I look at the yarn again, I'm not saying--what was I going to make with that!
  14. Lea, nothing like family drama. Hopefully they'll get over it soon. The turkeys are in the frig thawing. I still have some house clutter to deal with and need to find out it the older DS is coming after Thanksgiving. The lift arrived Thursday and the painters are working on the second floor.
