  3. Apparently I suck! I work 3rd shift on Saturday nights so I totally forgot to post the scores I apologize and If you would like I will post the scores this week instead.
  4. Welp Walmart had mandala sparkle on clearance for a dollar.... so WTD -6
  5. Well I fell off the bandwagon something fierce this past year what with my move and starting a job where I constantly have overtime. but I'm determined to stashbust! I joined another crafting stashbusting group on FB and it has a unique setup that I wanted to share with you ladies! Hey everyone! This is my Introduction and my goals post! My name is Malisa I'm 27 and I work full time 3rd shift at a casino so my life is ALWAYS hectic. I knit, crochet, sew, cross stitch, and also dabble in painting and dyeing yarn. I am saving up to either go to Reinbeck in October or Maryland's Alpaca and Fiber fest in November. So my goal is to clear out some spots in my yarn stash for what I will bring home and also have a decent sized chunk of money allotted (I will also be putting the money that I don't spend into an actual jar to keep and save for that purpose!) I'm giving myself a crafting budget of $25 for each month. For yarn usage because I do a lot of little projects or really big projects like blankets; instead of getting a credit for each crocheted or knitted thing I finish I'm going to give myself 50 cents- for using 50% or less of the original skein of yarn (at the start of this endeavor i.e. if I have a partial skein weighting 80 grams and I use less than 40 grams of it) $1- for more than 50% of the skein (same analogy more than 40 grams) 25 cents- for each project finished in yarn. Any crafting that I finish that isn't knit or crocheted: $1- if it took me less than 15 hours to complete it. $2- if it took between 15 and 50 hours to complete it. $5- if it took more than 50 hours to complete. I will post my scores as normal on here and then at the end of the month I will share how much I spent or saved! Feel free to join me in this savings attempt I'm excited. (though if you don't have the means or desire you don't also have to save back the money for real)
  6. WTD 0 again. I started a new job and am not going to get much yarn time for the next couple of months
  7. I made some hats and started a pair of crocodile stitch wristers! WTD is +7
  8. Welp! I did a little bit of Damage to my stash this week. I have nothing to do during the day because my job doesn't start until the week after next so I've been working up little round motifs to put onto a wall art piece I've been working on every so often since 2014!! I was also recruited into Dungeons and dragons, so while i'm not rolling my dice and taking my turn I knit and crochet! I've played 2 3-4 hour sessions and made 4 hats! the hats each took a half a skein and I used up 6 balls of scraps on my wall art! WTD +8!
  9. WTD 0 Been moving and settling in so no yarning has been happening!
  10. go right ahead and restart!! I know I feel that way some days too! Especially when I get bags of yarn from friends who have it and don't have a clue what to do with it.
  11. So I've been packing up most of this past week, and did another purge of things including another couple of trash bags of yarn. they were donated to the same place I donated last time and it was a total of 38 skeins and 22 balls donated so + 98! I also actually threw away about 5 balls worth of yarn that was tangled and shredded by my nieces cats. +5 Due to the rules of the government I am not moving to Japan with my sister and family, but am moving back into my home town which was ravaged by a reported and confirmed 18 tornadoes on memorial day so say a little prayer for me I can find housing in the next week. WTD + 103!!!!
