  1. Over the weekend I crocheted 3 but bought 5 so I'm -4 for the week.
  2. I still have yet to get working on that afghan for my son! I am a little more than half done with a lapghan for a charity project. Does that count?
  3. Well, I got about 1/2 of the lapghan done. Just had too much other stuff to do this past week. But I'm still working on it. I'll probably have it finished this weekend if everything goes smoothly with the rest of my life...lol!
  4. 2 skeins this week on an afghan/lapghan for a charity type project. I thought I would be done with it by now, but no. I'll just keep working!
  5. What a good idea! Thanks for coordinating all that.
  6. Hello! Welcome from one Michigander to another! This is a great place with lots of support to help you get stuff done!
  7. http://www.wxyz.com/dpp/news/church-group-works-to-help-strippers-on-a-different-path The pink scarf on the ottoman is one I crocheted!
  8. This is the most FANTASTIC Valentine present! Your hubby is a keeper!
  9. Well, none of this is due until Christmas, so hopefully I can get it done before then!
  10. WOW! That is absolutely STUNNING! What an accomplishment! Of course I have ADHD, so a project that large and complex would take me 2 lifetimes to finish! I'm thoroughly impressed!
  11. Well, I bought the patterns for the stuffed animals for my kids! YAY! Raccoon , Otter , Reindeer , and Cow. They are all by Teri Crews. She's very talented! I need to pick out two more for my niece and nephew. I have the yarn already in my stash for the felted purses, but I also have a ton of wool sweaters and I may end up doing sweater purses for my mom and SIL, I haven't quite decided. Anyway, that's where I'm at so far!
  12. Well, I've been crocheting some, but not enough to earn points. However, I ROAK'd 3 skeins, and I believe that counts, so I'm +6! I'm going to keep my hook moving so maybe I'll have more points by Saturday. I've been working on this granny square afghan, and I'm just waiting until I finish up the skeins before I add the points. Maybe I'll get it done today or tomorrow.
  13. Alrighty! I'm getting started! My goal is just to finish at least one lapghan/throw in this 6 day period. Doesn't seem like a lot, but I get distracted easily...lol. AND GO!
  14. I'm so unmotivated this week. Literally I have done NOTHING crochet or otherwise the entire first half of this week. Some one kick me in the pants and get me moving, please??!!
  15. That might be an option for one of my brothers... I'll have to check out some patterns.
  16. I think I'll make a lapghan or a foot pocket throw to give to the group I did the warm stuff for. They have a second step in the process where they cater to more specific needs so maybe some warm blankie-type-stuff would be good.
  17. I've been holding off on joining you all for this CAL but I found some SUPER CUTE patterns for some of the peeps I love! I'll see if I can post links later but for now it looks like stuffed animals for my kids and my niece and nephew, and 2 striped felted purses one for my mom, one for my SIL. So I think I'll hang out with you all and when I'm not rushing out the door to pick up kids I'll read up on all the posts to get ideas for the men in my life...lol. Be seeing ya!
  18. Well I'm plus 3 for the weekend. (Scarf and granny squares) Nothing yet this week. I'm doing really well though... I'm in the +!!
  19. Just a word of encouragement here... we just did an outreach for some women in bad situations in Detroit. We made 450 scarves, ear warmers, headbands and/or cowls. The response from these women was really overwhelming to the women who actually gave them out. They were thrilled that someone cared enough to take the time and effort to make something especially for them. So we DO make a difference! And we have fun doing it!
  20. More stuff for my church charity project, scarf, cowl and a couple more earwarmer/headband thingys... I also made a Kindle cozy! +3 for yesterday!
  21. I'm a bi-polar crocheter! I love quick projects: dishcloths, scarves, head bands, small toys... and I love afghans! Especially giant granny squares. I love the repetitive nature of the afghans, great for when you just want to put your brain in neutral and simply exist. I like the quick projects for when I need to feel productive and like I got something accomplished. It really does help jump start me for whatever else I may have to do that day. (Well... most of the time... except when I get caught in the trap of "I'll just start one more of these..." )
  22. Found a super quick pattern for ear warmers/head bands. I have all these small skeins of super bulky yarn that it's turning out to be perfect for! Crochet up 2 skeins just today! Yay!
