2015 Stashbusting CAL

Recommended Posts

Finished up all 3 skeins of the cotton Sister bought for me on 2 hotpads and 3 coasters. Plus with the little ends, I started a scrap hot pad that will probably be ugly as sin by the time it's done, but it will be useful nonetheless!  :lol

 

WTD +6       YTD +58

I didn't think there was any way my little 6 points would get me anything at all!  :lol

 

Finally finished up a skein working on the Moogly CAL, so off to a good start for the week... +2!

I forgot to add my score in, but then I had a big ol' 0 for the week, so it doesn't much matter.

I had a small skein of yarn from grannyannie for our Secret Santa exchange on the friendship ghan CAL, so I used that on a chemo cap to donate. So another +2 brings me up to +4! And it's only Monday!  :yay

I finished off a ball (+1) on Sunday. I remodeled my bedroom and got some craft storage space so I've been sorting and organizing yarn. I found a bunch of wobbly, tangled skeins so I ended up making 14 balls (+14).

Looks like there are lots of good starts to the week!

 

I'm working on the rickrack rainbow baby blanket and somewhat regretting the pattern choice. It's pretty, but all sc. Plus I'm using a sport weight from my stash instead of the worsted weight the pattern calls for, so that's making for slower progress, too. The stripes on each end aren't going to finish off any skeins, but maybe the white in the middle will. I'm having to alternate working on other projects because sc drives me crazy very quickly.

Finished a skein on a corner to corner, so another +2... Then DH took me to Hobby Lobby and I bought 6 skeins of I Love This Cotton for chemo hats (it's just so soft!!) .... So I'm back at -6 for the week. But no more buying and 2 skeins of cotton almost finished, so I'm trying to at least get back to zero!

I spent way to just time rolling a skein into a ball after the center part totally snarled and wouldn't pull out....+1. If it hadn't been purple, I would have considered just tossing it!

Used up a skein on a chemo hat and another one on a mile a minute baby afghan, so up to -2 this week... Still holding out hope I'll finish up this chemo hat I'm working on now and bring myself back to 0 for the week. Fingers crossed!
