2021 Stashbusting CAL This is a continuation of last year's game. With the start of the new year, you get to start with ZERO for your point score. If you want, keep your 2020 score in your signature to remind you to "Do Better". General Rules: Please sign up to this thread. I will be putting all the names at the end of this post so that we know who's playing. Please include your Stashbusting score in your signature. Example: WTD=+5 YTD=+27. Please post your scores by Midnight on Saturday, so that the scorekeeper can pick them up. Shortly after that, the scorekeeper will be tallying the scores and posting them on Sunday. Please make your score easy to be seen. Large numbers and pretty colors really help. Example: WTD=+7 YTD=-9 (WTD= week to date and YTD = Year to date) Weekly Scores First (gold), second (silver) and third (bronze) will be noted on the scorekeeping list on Sunday, along with all the other scores. If you have the largest total in receiving yarn and not using it up, it is called the "Shoot the Moon" award. The "Shoot the Moon" winner from the previous week will be responsible for posting the scores the following week. NOTE: If the "Shoot the Moon" winner is not available to post the scores, please contact me--greyhoundgrandma--as early as possible so that scores can be posted in a timely manner. The scorekeeper should post by 12 noon Eastern Time on Sunday. If it will be posted at another time, due to work, church, etc., please notify the group so that they will know when to expect their scores. Scorekeeping Positive Points For every skein of yarn you use up completely, you get two (2) points. (A skein of yarn is a brand new bundle that you have bought at a store or its equivalent. If you roll it into smaller cakes or balls, it will still count as two (2) points when you use them completely.) For every skein of yarn that you roll into a ball, you get one (1) point. For every ball of yarn you use up, you get one (1) point. Points can be earned by crocheting, knitting, crafting or donations. Negative Points For every skein of yarn you buy, receive, or inherit, you lose two (2) points. For every ball of yarn you buy, receive, or inherit, you lose one (1) point. This is an on-going CAL. Feel free to join at any time! When you start playing with us for the first time, you DON'T COUNT what's in your stash. For many of us, that would be impossible. You get points when you use up what's in your stash or lose points when you add to your stash. Your first scores will be posted January 9th, and the first list of scores will be posted on January 10th for the week ending on January 9th. If you have any questions just post them to the thread. Good luck with your STASHBUSTING! Participants: Ellie 13 greyhoundgrandma randib82 howieann Inkked0317 MalisaMeesa PBLKNP
https://bluestarcrochet.com/chunky-crochet-cowl/ Super chunky crochet cowl that is the ultimate stashbusting project. I have used 4 strands of DK weight yarn to make this cosy cowl. However, this pattern will work for ANY weight yarn. You can combine different yarn weights together to make up 32-ply weight of yarn (4 x DK weight, 3 x 4-ply weight + 2 x aran weight, 1 x DK + 2 x chunky as an example) and the pattern will come out perfect! I have a handy -ply table on the blog to help you along combining your yarns!
After my mother passed away a couple of years ago, I got a few things that she had crocheted, including an afghan, scarf, hat and a hotpad. I really liked the hotpad, and it was looking well-used, so I finally sat down this morning and studied it, and then recreated it. I wrote down how I did it, but since I'm not sure if she got it from a book or what I can't publish it anywhere, so I just thought I'd show it off On the right is the original one that I brought home and on the left is the one I did. Now, the other side of hers is solid white, but I made both of my motifs exactly the same. I think I'll make some more, it's a really good stashbusting project.
