  1. I finished this awesome piece last night!!! This is The Spice Market by Mark Roseboom with "the guy with a hook" blog. It took 12 weeks, but I finished a couple other projects in that time frame as well. I used #10 cotton thread with 1.6mm hook. Final measurement is 31" square (78cm) https://theguywiththehook.com/the-spice-market-cal-2020/ I plan on hanging it but have to wait for the frame shop to re-open. I had a lady tell me it would be a perfect table cover in her Tarot Card Reading business. Which I thought was kinda cool!
  2. Hello all! It's been a busy week. I got a bit of stitching in, but not enough to score any points. WTD 0 Y'all have a happy week!

  5. I doubt I'll finish out any more yarn today. I used 4 balls that were leftover from the C2C blanket & stitched out a shelter mat. That's about it for this week. WTD +4 YTD -202 Y'all have a Happy week!

  8. Umm, uh-oh!I used 3 skeins & rolled 4 balls on the C2C blanket this week. I also received 6 cute little mini-skeins of sock yarn & my yarn angel sent a box that arrived this morning with 31 skeins in it. Phew! I call that an awesome week! ♪♫♪ Fly me to the moon... ♪♫♪WTD -64
  9. Finally! A proper finished project for March! Hobbii C2C blanket. I reduced the size a bit. I knew I wouldn't have enough stash to complete an entire throw. Ended up 42" x 42" and quite heavy at a little over 2 lbs. I used Hobby Lobby "I Love This Yarn" & an H hook.
  10. Geez, I forgot to post again! My mind is in too many places these days. I worked on both my projects this week. I was so close to finishing a skein on the Hobbii C2C last evening, but ran out of steam. WTD 0 Y'all have a Happy week!
  11. Hello all! I haven't finished any skeins this week. I've been diligently working on the Spice Market CAL. I finished Part 7 of 10 last evening. I also started a Hobbii C2C baby blanket. Update: We made a stop at Hobby Lobby while out shopping last evening. 😔 I bought 3 balls of Artiste thread. WTD -6 Have a Happy week!

  15. @greyhoundgrandma - Mona- I try to skip on past those emails too. With National Crochet Month starting tomorrow, we'll be inundated with sales! @Inkked0317 - Jessie - Your dragon is MAGNIFICENT! I worked on the Spice Market CAL...so slow going. I'm up to Part 7. Over 700 stitches per round now. At least it's in thread & I don't have a heavy blanket laying on me while I work. I finished off 3 skeins of thread & 1 skein of RHSS on a tote bag. WTD +8 YTD -136 Y'all have a Happy week!
