  1. Chocolate . I made a pound of fudge Mon. night, I was going to take it to work Tue., but forgot. I gave some to my neighbor (about 1/4) and ate the rest during the week (finished it last night ). I made the 2 purses with the 2 skeins Sugar & Cream cotton and a ball left from before (+ 5) . I have a Michael's rewards voucher for $5. I'll try not to use it on . I'm going to work on a doll next. WTD: + 5 YTD: + 15 Ellie 13
  2. Using sock for a jacket, interesting. Sock usually self-stripes with the right pattern. If you really think it's bad, you can wear to an "ugly sweater" party . Wasn't there a "coat of many colors" in the bible ? Ellie 13
  3. No scores yet ? O.K. I went to Michael's yesterday. Got the doll eyes and 2 Sugar & Cream cotton (-4), for a project. I made some heart pins, used a small ball (+1). Score this week: WTD: + 1 YTD: + 10 Ellie 13
  4. I got out today, I mailed a package to my mom and dropped off the 8 balls of (+8) . It was really , but I didn't care, it felt great to be out after a week of quarantine. I'm still masking up just in case. When I got home, I found 2 skeins and a ball of by my door (-5). I finished a teddy bear and rolled a skein down (+1) . So, my new total is + 4. maybe I'll have more before Sat. WTD: + 4 YTD: + 9 Ellie 13
  5. That looks really familiar, might have been in a book I had. I think the is Caron Simply Soft. The flower petals look like cluster stitch. Ellie 13
  6. I got last Tues., went home from work early, I had and dizziness. I was told my symptoms could be the flu or covid. I got tested and was positive for covid 19. I've been quarantined from Jan. 5th - Jan. 8th. Will go back to work Wed. I did some , but wasn't really into it. a lot, quarantine is over, but I still feel a little . I didn't use any this week. WTD: 0 YTD: + 5 Ellie 13
  7. I'm in. I got some and a gift card to Michaels for Christmas. I also used some , so my score last week was + 1. I won't bother adding it and will start at 0. In the last 2 days I made 8 baby hats, used 4 balls (+ 4). Last night I sorted out all my , I rolled down some 1/2 skeins and made a package of 8 balls to donate. I had a lot of tiny balls I tossed, only a few yds of each, altogether = about a ball (+ 1). When I go to Michaels, I'll try to buy only as much as I use . WTD: + 5 YTD: + 5 Ellie 13 HAPPY NEW YEAR ! !
  8. I haven't been here since Dec. 12th. I haven't done much lately, it's been too busy at the market. I spent Christmas with my parents, brother and his boyfriend (It took time, but I finally got used to saying that). Now that the holiday rush is over, maybe I can get back to . WTD: 0 YTD: + 111 Ellie 13 MERRY CHRISTMAS ! !
  9. I have a pattern for the square potholder, I make them a lot. I got it in sewing class 8th grade (maybe, late 70's) It's an old pamphlet they used to teach . Has a lot of granny square stuff. You make a ch 12 (+/-) ring, (I use a 1" plastic ring), work 16 sc in it, use the front loops [sc in 2 sc, ch 2, sc in 2 sc], turn and use the free loops, [sc in 2 sc, ch 2, sc in 2 sc] join with sl st, working in both loops in a rnd. You sc in each sc, [sc, ch 2, sc] in the ch space, join with sl st and ch 1 up each rnd. Do 22 or 23 rnds then fold it flat, working through both layers, sc each sc, 3 sc i
  10. Is that anything like a button monster ? It's a little monster with a "button" hole in the middle. You make a ch 6 (8) ring, make 5 "arms" in the ring. Then you fold 1 arm over and sew it down for a head and add eyes. You wear it like a "pin" by attaching it to a button on your shirt/sweater. I don't remember where I got the pattern (35 +/- yrs ago), but I think I can still make them. Ellie 13
  11. Golden Girls are cute. My mom would love that. I finished the penguins and a dozen more wreaths. I finished off a 4.5 oz. skein and 3 balls (+5) . I can start this week with a good score. I don't know how much I'll get in with the holiday rush already starting at the market. But working extra hours means more $$. WTD: + 5 YTD: + 111 Ellie 13
  12. I checked my stash and found I only had 1 shade of green. I went to Michael's Sun. I couldn't find the rings, but I got 1 skein green (- 2) and the stuff for the turtles. I made a turtle, 2 penguins, some more wreath pins and another stocking. I rolled down 1 skein and used a ball (+ 2) . I need 3 more penguins and as many pins as I can make. Are we going to play again next year ? WTD: 0 YTD: +106 Ellie 13
  13. I finished 2 Christmas stockings and 12 wreath pins. I rolled down 2 skeins (+2) . I have to go to Michael's for more plastic rings and some styrofoam balls and 1/2 balls so I can make a floating turtle. There's a Target at the mall so I can get gift cards too. I'll try not to get any . WTD: + 2 YTD: + 106 Ellie 13
  14. Ask what they want, most places want washable acrylic/cotton, no wool. If you want soft and not hot, try # 3 (baby weight) or Caron Simply soft , it will make nice indoor hats. Winter's coming, they might want warm outdoor hats too. Find out if they want kids hats. Years ago I saw a kids hat book, "crazy hats/caps" might have been in the title. They were "fun/costume" like hats, some even looked like "wigs". I make basic baby hats for hospitals. Good luck. Ellie 13
  15. I didn't get to post last week, so I'll add it to this week. I fell on the way home from work the Mon. the 15th. I was face down on the sidewalk and had trouble rolling over. a woman came and called 911. EMTs got me up, except for a swollen nose, split lip and assorted scrapes/bruises, I was OK. I got a ride the rest of the way home in a police car. Tues. I felt really bad so I stayed home. I made 4 turkeys and wings for the other 2 when I ran out of brown . It was 2 balls and a 1/2 skein (+ 3) . I went to my friends and she gave me a pounder (- 2). I finished the turkeys I needed, then I m
