  1. I did some this week. I finished a teddy bear, started another teddy bear and made parts for another turtle. I used a skein, a ball and rolled a skein down (+ 4) . I got ball of yellow from a friend for turkey pins (- 1) . I need to assemble the turtles, make at least 12 turkey pins and 1 or 2 hats this weekend. Maybe I'll have more points by Sat. night. WTD: + 3 YTD: + 100 Ellie 13
  2. Bernat Baby Coordinates, possibly 6 oz. skeins. I think you can still get it in smaller 5 oz. skeins. I got some last year at Michael's or A.C. Moore. Ellie 13
  3. Didn't post last week, but it was 0 anyway. My wrist hurt so I didn't much this week. Thurs. I went Trick-or-Treating. I filled 2 boxes and a grocery bag with stuff for the food pantry, plus I raised $82.28 for Unicef. I did get to a little today. I got the parts for 1 turtle done and most of a teddy bear, just need to stuff it and add legs. Still no used yet. WTD: 0 YTD: + 97 Ellie 13
  4. I used a ball on a dress for the teddy bear and got 1/2 a teddy bear done. I used a ball on a child sized hat and donated 7 balls to my knit/crochet group Mon. night (+ 9) . I looked through the group's cabinet of and found 3 different greens, perfect for the turtles. So I took 2 balls and a 3.5 oz. skein (- 4). I'll wait until Sun. to get more tan so I can put it towards next week's score . WTD: + 5 YTD: + 97 Ellie 13
  5. I used a ball on more Halloween pins (+ 1) . The bear is taking more than I remembered. I have enough to make 1 bear and maybe start the 2nd. I'll have to get another tan and the greens next week when I have more $$. I have enough to make the baby afghan though. WTD: + 1 YTD: + 92 Ellie 13
  6. I bought 2 skeins, tan and brown (- 4) . I didn't like any of the green I saw, not turtley enough. I started a teddy bear, but the brown is so dark it's almost black. So I'm going to make the bears out of the tan and some cream (aran ?) color I have. Since I can't return the brown, I'll use it for hats/scarves. I used 4 balls making Halloween pins and pocket prayer shawls (+ 4) . I hope to get more points before Sat. WTD: 0 YTD: + 91 Ellie 13
  7. I have 5 M-A-M booklets, 3 by Annie's Attic and 2 by Leisure Arts. Learn to Crochet the Mile-A-Minute Annie Way (Annie's Attic 1992 and '94) has the basic pattern in white and pink on the cover. Magnificent Mile-A-Minute Afghans (Leisure Arts 1992) has a white and pink one too. There are more M-A-M booklets listed in the back of the 1st booklet, it could be in one of those. All the M-A-M patterns can be made with any number of color combinations, so find one you like and make it in the colors you want. Ellie 13
  8. I found 2 balls and 1/2 skein of orange and 5 small balls of greens. I made 2 happy pumpkin door decorations, 12 pumpkin pins, 6 ghost pins and 6 spider pins. I used the 1/2 skein and 2 of the greens (+3) . I have to make 2 teddy bears and 2 turtles by Christmas, so I'll need to get brown and greens. Plus a baby afghan for a baby due in March. I'm not sure when the baby shower will be, so I want to have it done by mid Jan. I also have to make some hats for charity. WTD: + 3 YTD: + 91 Ellie 13
  9. Love the monkey ! Where do I get the pattern. I think the monkey pattern might make a nice clown. Just skip the nose and tail pieces. Make the head white and the body in colors to look like clothes. Sew on a clown face, hat and neck ruffle. You could even lightly stuff the body. Ellie 13
  10. I was on yesterday and forgot that I gave one of the unfinished afghans to a friend in my knit/crochet group. She said she might be able to do something with it. So another point for the 1/2 skein that went with it. WTD: + 4 YTD: + 88 Ellie 13
  11. I haven't been here since Sept. 21st. Last weeks score was 0 anyway, but with a YTD of + 84, I would have gotten the bronze for Sept. After the yard sale went free, my plastic bin of assorted crochet/craft magazines was still left (someone put them on the sidewalk and took the bin ). The church up the street had their fall faire last weekend, so they took some of what was left. I gave the smaller pattern booklets to my knit/crochet group, the rest I left at the church. I made another pig, some spider pins and ghost pins. Used a ball of pink, a small ball each of black and white (+ 3) . Finally a real number . As soon as I find some orange, I'm going to make pumpkin pins too (hope I don't need to buy some). WTD: + 3 YTD: + 87 Ellie 13

    Stitch ID

    Beautiful ! It looks like a C2C with popcorn stitches (maybe every other row ?). Ellie 13
  13. My grand niece turned 4 on 9/8, so the BBQ on Sun. was a belated party. I gave her a pig and an elephant plus 2 Elephant and Piggie books. She loved the animals, especially the elephant. My brother wants 2 pigs now. My knit/crochet group started again, so I made 2 hats and a pig this week, but no used. Last night I got home and there was a sign up for a yard sale from 8 AM to 4 PM Sat. The landlord had cleaned out 2 storage units of people who had moved. He decided everything must go. I didn't have plans so, at 7:30 this morning I helped move stuff out. I put out some stuff I wasn't using too. I spent all day working the sale, but a one way street with limited parking is not good. The landlord's daughter texted/sent pics to friends so some came and others bought online (she'll take it to them). Around 3:15 she posted pics on some selling website with "Today until 4 PM, all free, curbside pick up" . I sold some of my stuff, got $27. So no today, but more $$ = more . WTD: 0 YTD: + 84 Ellie 13
  14. I finished the afghan and another elephant. I rolled down 2 skeins (+ 2) . Sat. my SIL, nephew and I went to Six Flags. My nephew wanted to ride all 12 coasters. My SIL and I went on some "family friendly" rides (not too fast, high or upside down). My nephew did 11 coasters, he skipped the one called Goliath, very scary looking . Sun. I went a family BBQ and got see my 2 new grand nieces. So sweet . I gave my mom 2 afghans for Project Linus and she gave me 2 unfinished ones that were donated. The unfinished afghans came with 2 half skeins (- 2) . My oldest niece couldn't make the BBQ, but she and her hubby joined via the internet with big news. I'm going get another grand niece/nephew sometime in March . I guess I'll start another afghan . WTD: 0 YTD: + 84 Ellie 13
  15. I didn't get to post last week, but it was 0 anyway. This week I have an elephant done, but I'm still trying to fix the pattern. I used a ball of pink making a pig, so I have an elephant, a pig and 2 Elephant and Piggie books for my grand niece's birthday. I got all the squares of the afghan together and I'm starting the border, should have it done by tonight. Fri. afternoon I have to make a cream cheese pie and some fudge for Sun. and Sat. I'm going to SIx Flags with a SIL and my nephew. I might not be able to post this weekend, so I'll post now. WTD: + 1 YTD: + 84 Ellie 13
