  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!!!!
  12. I'm going to a convention tomorrow with a friend and am going to be out of town all day and night so I'm posting tonight. I've put on a little bit of work on my spellman sweater and I've worked up half a skein of rainbow yarn into some catnip filled cat toys. WTD + 1

  16. I Was a good NOODLE today at the Yarn festival! only 2 skeins came home with me! WTD 5/4/2019 -4
  17. I am HIGHLY FRUSTRATED. Crochetville is acting up for me. I have had to change my login at least 5 times in the past week because when I bring up the forum (I have it on my favorites bar on my browser for easy access to this thread) I am suddenly no longer logged in despite having my login saved to my browser with Chrome. Each time I re-save the new password and it works for like 5 minutes but then I go to recheck an hour later and I'm signed out again and the newly saved password doesn't work. Anyone else having this sort of issue?
  18. Well I'm off to a good start. I finished that shawl I was working on last week but FORGOT TO POST AGAIN so I'll add it to this weeks score. and now am working on a granny square bag. I'm hoping to get it done by next weekend which is Maryland Sheep and wool Festival. If I get it finished that should be 8 points in the positive which will help my score for next week be waaaaaaaaaay better given that I plan on buying a sweaters quantity of yarn at that festival! SO far this week I have +4 lets see if I can finish off another ball of cotton by Saturday night!
  19. I'm searching for at least one skein probably 2 of Bernat Super Value Ombre Yarn in the Pizazz colorway! I need it for a blanket project for my ailing Aunt. It's a discontinued yarn and I cannot find it for sale ANYWHERE Please Help. I willing to pay for the yarn and Shipping. This is what the yarn looks like.
