    2018 Stashbusting CAL

    2018 Stashbusting CAL This is a continuation of last year's game. With the start of the new year, you get to start with ZEROS for your point scores. If you want, keep your 2017 score in your signature to remind you to "Do Better". Here are the 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. Also, please put a line in your signature for Stashbusting score. 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. 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. If the "Shoot the Moon" winner is not available to post the scores, please contact 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 For every skein of yarn you use up completely, you get two (2) points. 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. 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. 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. You count points for yarn that you use in crocheting, knitting, crafting or give away. 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 6th, and the first list of scores will be posted on January 7th for the week ending on January 6th. If you have any questions just post them to the thread.

    Aspiring Nana

    It's been 6 year since I first picked up my first set of knitting needles & yarn (Crochet hook to soon follow). I discovered I was to be a "Nana". I was notorious for buying 1 skein of every color in a particular yarn. Hence The STASH. Manage to reduce it just a bit with this blanket.

  4. Hi everybody, I am working on a pattern that I thought of to help get rid of some of my stash. It is a pattern that I designed. I had thought to use crochet and make a granny's daughter afghan, but I decided to knit instead of crochet and so I am knitting the afghan instead.

Also, please put a line in your signature for Stashbusting score. 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. 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 first weekend of posting will be on January 8th for the week ending January 7th. Good luck, everyone, and let's see some good stashbusting happening this year! If there's any questions, just post them on the thead and I'm sure they will be answered quickly. List of names is on page #6.
