owlvamp, that is a beautiful ghan!!!  I love the color combo.

 

I'm at a big fat zero for the week. If my number changes tomorrow I'll just add it to the next week's score. :)

I don't think I counted them already, as I usually dont, until I photo them, lol, oh well, Im gonna lose points probably tomorrow, or soon, as I am out of a few colors......he he.............

I haven't been here since March 6th, so I'll add the 2 weeks together. I've been sorting stuff and deciding what I can get rid of if I have to move. Not much :crocheting time, but I made some shamrock pins and started bunny pins. I donated 4 skeins and 15 balls of :yarn (+ 23)  :yay . I found out my niece is having a baby in early Oct, so I have to make a baby afghan. I went to Michael's and got rainbow colors and aran, 10 skeins total (- 20). I started working on squares but haven't used enough  :yarn to count yet. At least my score is still positive.

WTD: + 3  YTD: + 17

too bad I didn't have a chance to get yarn this week,I had enough of a cushion to stay in the positive numbers

making these birdnests with 3 strands of scrap yarn,is certainly busting the stash of small balls of yarn

 

wtd + 25 ytd + 48

Of course I forgot to post my scores this week... I didn't have a zero! I'll just carry it over for next week, though.

Yep--that's your silver. So much for my proofreading!! I fixed it on the list.

 

Both of the baby ghans are really pretty! You do a great job of putting colors together.

I'm starting in the negatives too, Mona!  :reyes

 

I bought a skein of grey for the Moogly CAL thinking I didn't have any more... turns out I have 2 other skeins in the craft room. Whoops. So -2. 

 

Then Sister bought me 3 skeins of cotton to make her a pot holder. -6. 

 

Down to -8 so far for the week. Looks like I need to get to work!! At least it'll be a really pretty pot holder... Lol

Ugh. Bought a mill end bag at AC Moore today because I couldn't help myself... April is donation month on our Birthday Bash Friendship ghan CAL, and I thought it was a great color for a Project Linus blanket or two. So another 4 skeins is another -8... -16 for the week so far. :reyes
