    Homespun yarn

    It is wonderful to work with if you use a big enough hook. I would love to have a chance to get it, if you are still taking names.

    Trouble getting motivated

    I've had projects like that. I make deals with myself. Something like, I can work on anything else on certain days but I have to work on that project on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

    I am working on a beginners round ripple. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/free-smoothfoxs-beginners-round-ripple The beginning of the rounds say to slip stitch in the next stitch then chain 3. Could I do a single crochet and chain 1 in place of the slip stitch chain 3?

    Wow! I have been away from the ville so long I can't even remember the last time I posted. I have been crocheting some but have lost track of how much I have used up. Good news is I haven't added to the stash. Maybe things will calm down here a little so I'm not so spacey about remembering to post my scores. Everyone seems to have been doing wonderful playing with yarn while I've been gone! Great job everyone!!!

    I used up 2 skeins this week and don't know if I'm going to have time today to use up anymore. On the positive side, I'm on vacation next week so hopefully I will have some extra crochet time. WTD: +4

    Sorry I've been absent the last couple of weeks. We were out of town one weekend and super busy the next. I haven't been crocheting a whole lot either. Hopefully I'll get more used up this week since I'm desperately trying to finish a granny c2c afghan. Used up 1 skein this week. +2

    Got to dig through just now. Lots of purples, pinks and greens. I love to work with those colors so I'm a happy camper. There were 51 full skeins (including 2 pounders) and 7 balls. Plus I bought 2 skeins for a scarf yesterday. Sitting at -113 for the week so far. I know I am only going to get a couple used up this week. Oh boy!!!!! :-)
