  1. Maybe one of the numbers is wrong. Check the next couple of rows (or are you working in rnds.?). Also look at the pictures. Ellie 13
  2. No totals yet ? Good. I finished the teddy bear, made more hats (8) and pocket prayer shawls (20). I mailed them all to my mom yesterday. I used 3 balls and rolled a skein down (+ 4). I've got lots of tomatoes, mini egg plants and cucumbers. My rose bush grew a lot and still blooming. I'm 5'3" and it's taller than me now, 5'10" (?). WTD: + 4 YTD: + 84 Ellie 13
  3. I haven't posted since the15th. I'm working on a teddy bear, finished a skein (+1) and will roll one down soon. Now that some kids are going back to school, I'm getting more hours at work, so less time for . The weather has been one day then the next. They keep predicting hurricanes, but so far we've only had . My garden likes it, so I'm getting lots of tomatoes. WTD: + 1 YTD: + 80 Ellie 13
  4. 3 stitches in 1, then 1 stitch in next stitch sounds like you are making a "mini shell" in every other stitch. What pattern is it ? sounds interesting. Ellie 13
  5. I still haven't used up any yet, but I finished another baby hat. Today I defrosted my freezer and set out some thing to thaw for the next couple of days. I mixed 2 pounds of meat for Swedish meat balls, I made 24 meat balls then decided to make the rest into a 1/2 size meat loaf. I'm going to start on some more squares for another afghan tonight. Maybe I can get some points by Sat. Ellie 13
  6. Nobody posted since Sun ? I thought I was a late poster. I my parents came Fri. morning. Mom brought back my canning jars and I gave her jars of India relish and rhubarb marmalade. I also gave her the prayer shawl, an afghan, baby hats, pocket prayer shawls and veggies from my garden. I got some watermelon rind from a market the makes fruit bowls and made watermelon rind pickles. I didn't have a lot of time for , but I got 8 pocket prayer shawls and 2 baby hats done, but no yarn used yet. WTD: 0 YTD: + 79 Ellie 13
  7. I finished the prayer shawl, used 2 skeins and rolled down 2 (+ 6) . I had some balls left from the baby afghans, so I made 12 baby hats and 6 pocket prayer shawls. I used every ball of white I could find (+ 7) . I got 4 tomatoes, 3 cucumbers, 6 mini eggplants and a lot beans from my garden . My mom and dad are coming in a couple of hours, maybe I'll give them some veggies. WTD: + 13 YTD: +79 Ellie 13
  8. I finished the baby afghan. I rolled down the pounder of white, about 4 (+/-) ozs. left (+1) . I looked through my stash for a skein of pink and gave it to a friend (+2). I found a bag of balls of black (something I frogged ). When I went to Michael's Sat., I only got a 7 oz. of black (-2). I didn't get to post, so I'll add it now. Also my garden is growing well. I've picked 5 peppers, 6 cucumbers, 10 mini eggplants and enough beans for 5 people. only 1 tomato is starting to turn red so far. I've got enough to share with others in the building . WTD: + 1 YTD: + 66 Ellie 13
  9. I haven't been here since July 6. I did a lot of . I finished 36 squares for the baby afghan. I got 16 of 18 squares for the prayer shawl done. I used 1 skein and rolled down 7 skeins (+ 9) . I hope to get both done soon. I sorted out my stash and have 6 1/2 skeins of bright rainbow colors and 3 small skeins of multi rainbow skeins. I need to go to Michael's to get more black to go with them. Maybe I'll get a pounder to save on points . Now that I've had the vaccine, I don't need to wear a mask (except on busses). I hope to visit my parents soon because a computer Zoom is not the same.
  10. I did a lot of , but no used. If I make a few more afghan squares, I should be able to roll some skeins down. The weather has been weird, 4 days , in the 90's (might have hit 100), then it off/on for 3 days, with temps mid/high 50's. The 1st day it , it started just when I finished watering my garden . It only lasted 10 mins., but it felt so good, I just stood there and got wet. My garden is doing great, I got 5 peppers, a cucumber an a lot of swiss chard so far, should have beans soon. My rose bush keeps blooming (I stopped counting after 15). Ellie 13
  11. I got bored with afghan squares so I started some 8" squares for a prayer shawl. If I keep going between the 2, I won't get bored. No used yet. Ellie 13
  12. I went to Michael's yesterday and got a pounder of white and 2 skeins of brown that they were out of the last time I went (- 6) . During the week I made lots of pocket prayer shawls, baby hats and some squares for a baby afghan I used the 1/2 skein white I rolled down weeks ago, a small baby skein and 3 small balls (+ 6) . So, with the 2 points I posted Sun., I still I still haven't add anything more this week. With all this I thought I'd get more points . WTD: + 2 YTD: + 56 Ellie 13
  13. I haven't found the pics. Sorry.
  14. I get my 2nd virus shot on Fri., so I'll be able visit my parents soon. Virtual through ZOOM is just not the same. I didn't get to Michael's, so no added points. I used a skein on more baby hats (+ 2) . I'll start squares for a baby afghan with what I have and get more white later. My garden is growing very nicely (even the weeds ). I hope to have fresh veggies soon. WTD: + 2 YTD: + 56 Ellie 13
