  1. I finished more baby hats Sat. it was late so I didn't post. I should've posted early Sun. A lady at work brought me a big bag of on Sun. Too much to count, so I decided to only count what I kept. I spent Sun. afternoon sorting it and giving/tossing it. I gave my neighbor all the wool (makes me itch) and some pink fuzzy baby . One skein was so old it was falling apart, another had some paint on it, and some partial skeins of rug (also wool) so I tossed them. I kept 3 skeins and rolled down 4 partials (- 10) . I used up 2 skeins baby and the 4 balls making 4 kid/teen size hats and some pock
  2. Sorry I haven't been here since the 12th. In the last 2 weeks, I made 2 more potholders, another teen sized hat, 2 baby hats and 8 shamrock door/wall hangings (4 large, 4 small). I rolled a skein down, used 2 skeins cotton, and 2 skeins regular (+ 9) . I went to Michael's yesterday and they still don't have white cotton . So I got 2 more skeins baby (- 4). If I make 5 (6) more baby hats I can use it up before Sat. night. I found a bag of small skeins of peach , so I'll make a doll or two next week. WTD: + 5 YTD: + 16 Ellie 13
  3. I finished the hat for my friend, she said keep the extra , so I made 3 pocket prayer shawls and gave her one. I used the skein (+2) . My birthday is this Sat. My mom sent me a card that was sweet (kind of "mushy"), not a joke on turning 60 or being old. I used to visit my parents around this time, but with the virus, I haven't been there since Christmas 2019. My family does ZOOM every month (since last Aug./Sept. ), but it's not the same. You can't reach out and . WTD: + 2 YTD: + 11 Ellie 13 HAPPY VALENTINES DAY
  4. I just gave away a bag of small balls. My friend makes mats for the animal shelter. The cats/dogs don't care about colors, they're just happy to have cozy bed. Ellie 13
  5. I missed last week, so I'll add it to this week. I made another potholder, 3 baby hats and about 30 (lost count) heart pins. I used 1 skein cotton, 1 skein baby and a ball of red (+ 5) . I bought 2 skeins baby (- 4) and a friend gave me a skein to make her a hat (- 2). I'm starting this week in the negatives, but hope to be on the plus side by Sat. WTD: - 1 YTD: + 9 Ellie 13
  6. I made 4 young adult size hats and 2 pocket prayer shawls, 1 skein used (+ 2). I made 2 potholders, 2 skeins of cotton used (+ 4). I got all my tiny balls of together and gave them to a friend who makes pet mats for an animal shelter. Since most of the balls were only a yard or 2, I decided not to count them individually, but weigh it instead. All the balls came to a little over 6 oz., so call it a skein (+ 2). This week I did great . WTD: + 8 YTD: + 10 Ellie 13
  7. I'm sorry I didn't get to post, but it was 0 anyway. I've been making baby hats and potholders, but didn't finish off any yet. I hope to have points by next Sat. Jessie, I love the afghan, where can I get the pattern for the squares? WTD: 0 YTD: + 2 Ellie 13
  8. I think it's a base ch, rows 1 - 2: plain sts across, rows 3 - 12: 3 (4) plain sts, 10 "raised" type sts (pop-corn, bobble, or whatever that is) repeated across ending with 3 (4) plain sts, to make the pattern, then repeat rows 1 - 12 X number of times to get the length, then repeat rows 1 - 2 to finish, border optional. The pattern is basically 12 rows repeated. Measure 1 set of 12 rows and figure out how many sets you need to get the length you want. Good luck. Ellie 13
  9. I'll join again. I didn't get here since Dec. day unknown. I had computer problems, but I fixed it by getting a new computer !! I also got a new cell phone !! So for the first week (+2 days) of Jan. I did a lot of . I used up 2 small balls 1 red, 1 pink, on heart pins, a skein on baby hats and rolled down 2 skeins cotton on potholders (+ 6) . This week, I bought 2 skeins (- 4), I made 5 pocket prayer shawls and I'm working on another potholder. So far no more used. WTD: + 2 YTD: + 2 Ellie 13
  10. MERRY CHRISTMAS ! I haven't been able to much since I've been working 6 days/week. With the holidays and bad weather, the market has been crazy. We got 10 +/- inches of last week. Today all , so it's all puddles and slush now. Because of the virus, my family has been doing a computer Zoom every month, but it's not the same. I used 4 balls on pocket prayer shawls (+4), so I'm ending the year in the triple digits . If we start again in Jan., I'll join. WTD: + 4 YTD: + 107 Ellie 13
  11. Are they different patterns? That could be the problem. If there are only 3 small ones you could take them apart and make them with a larger hook. As for blocking the medium ones, just stretch them a little and see if that works first. Ellie 13
  12. Definitely post stitches. My grandma was always making granny squares with her scraps. When grandma passed, I got a big bag of squares. So I put together an afghan for my dad. It's nice to have something from loved ones to remember them. Ellie 13
  13. I haven't been here since Nov. 25th. I'm back to working 5 days, but I haven't been able to get out much. I every chance I got. Used up all my plastic rings on wreath pins, so I some more Christmas stockings (found some from last year). Used up 3 balls and rolled a skein down (+ 4) . I went to Michael's yesterday and bought plastic rings, a hook and red and green (- 4). I think I can finish a stocking or 2 by Sat. and get a point or 2 (if I remember to post ) . WTD: 0 YTD: + 103 Ellie 13
  14. I haven't been here since Oct 29th (somehow my post went on twice ), computer problems couldn't get on line . I finished the bear, a dress for the bear, a bunch of turkey pins (25 - 30, lost count) and some more pocket prayer shawls. I used up 8 balls and rolled down 2 skeins (+ 10). I might just end this year with over 100 points. I went to Target and found 3 more shirts for work and 3 nice T-shirts for weekends. The last 2 weeks I've been working 6 days again, more $$, but not not much time. Now I will start wreath pins and maybe try snowmen too. WTD: + 10 YTD: + 103 triple di
  15. I went to Target Sat., no more shirts in my size, Old Navy is in the same shopping center, but also no shirts . I went to Michael's to get red ribbon I'm running low on, no1/8 inch ribbon, but I got red beads (box of 550). Yesterday I was looking for the pins and found a jar of red beads I thought I didn't have (200 +/-) . I guess I'll have enough for 2 -3 years, if I don't miss place them again . I got 2 the turtle and 1/2 a teddy bear done. I used 2 balls and rolled 2 skeins down (+ 4) . I'm going to make some turkey pins for the next few days. WTD: + 4 YTD: + 93 Ellie 13
