I finished my sweetheart ripple!!!!!!! Used up 5 balls and rolled the last skein to a ball, so a +6 for this week!! I'm so happy I'm finished. The only thing I don't like is I don't care for the yarn. It was my first time working with Caron Simply Soft and it has fuzzed up terribly. But the afghan looks amazing!!!

It's a good day here. Son started physical therapy. He did pretty good. And then we went out for breakfast on a gift card. Yay!

 

And I got to go to my knitting/crochet group. Things are improving!

Mary...that is some beautiful yarn.

 

So far this week I've used up one skein and 2 balls of yarn.

 

I have all this wonderful new yarn...I just wish I had more hook time to play with it ;)

I was at a + 10,then got tired of only two blue choices,either baby blue or soft navy

so went to Michaels,was hoping to pay only 1.50 on a skein 50% coupon,well they had no delft blue,so got a color close to it in loops and threads,still only cost me 1.83

Gee I really hated paying that 2.77 at walmart for that delft blue,but really wanted it

so now I'm at + 6 for the week so far.

Wow! That pattern is pretty awesome and you did a great job! :cheer As for Simply Soft, I agree. Won't touch it unless it is absolutely necessary.

I've been working hard at the market, to tired to get to the library for internet. I did a lot of :crocheting while watching TV though :lol. I used a skein, a ball and rolled a skein down (+ 4) :cheer. I have 1/2 the squares done for an afghan. My friend doesn't need it until Christmas, so I'm putting it on hold and going to make some pumpkin pins. I hope to get here more often.

Went to shawl ministry meeting on Thursday and received four skeins from a very large and beautiful yarn donation to the group. Some generous person spent a lot of time and money to "pay forward" after receiving a shawl herself. What a blessing!

 

For week ending Sept. 15, 2012:

I won't use up anything more today, so I'll go on and post. I ended up taking some sick time from work - arthritis flare up and big case of the blah's to go with it. I finished up a couple of nearly complete round ripples I was making for a co-worker, but didn't feel like doing much else. So my big Finally-Start-Using-It-Up-Week came out to --

 

WTD: +1

YTD: -109

 

At this rate, I should be able to work off that deficit by around Halloween 2014! :lol

No more yarn usage. Just started the beginning knitting class here, so that's my focus at the moment. Doing a few rows on a baby blanket for donation each day, but it's slow going.

Not much usage for me. The scarf has stalled since puppy destroyed the needles and killed a few stitches at the beginning of the current tier. Sigh.

 

Only did a little bit of crocheting this week. I'm still:
