I finished the baby afghan :cheer  . The border I chose didn't use as much :yarn as I thought, so I used a ball down to a few yards (+ 1). I made 2 more hexagons for the hot pad and finished off the cotton (+ 1). I have 1 skein of cotton left to finish it. I hope it's enough. I've been cleaning out my closet and finding stash I forgot about. I found a bag with a UFO in it, from a friend's grandmother. It's long ripple jacket from the 60's (70's?). There's a pattern and 4 1/2 skeins of Orlon Sayelle apple green (Caldor brand, gone 30 + yrs)  :yarn to finish it. All it needed was 1 sleeve and the collar, but I decided to frog the sleeve and make it into a sleeveless (or short sleeve) vest. I put 3 of the skeins in a box of donations for a charity sale (+ 6) :yay  . This is the biggest score I've had in a long time.

WTD: + 9   YTD: + 35

Worked two skeins into balls on a shawl and rolled another skein from the shawl into a ball.  I only needed three rows from that one and will save it to make the border.

 

Now that my team is out of the hockey playoffs, I guess we have to switch to baseball so I can crochet in the evenings.  I love movies, but I get too engrossed in them to get any crochet time in.

 

For week ending April 25, 2015;

I confess, I went to the Sheep, Wool & Fiber festival again this year, and skeins of wool snuck into my trunk and stowed away with me back to my house.  I was tempted not to count the ball of roving, but it was included in a thrummed mittens kit, so it sort of does count, so...

Nothing used up or purchased this week. This the end of the month?

The month really goes by fast sometimes, especially when the last full week of the month leaves almost another week still to go. It just gets confusing if you don't set a constant for ending each month.

I bought 1 skein but then I rolled leftover yarn from my mystery crochet-along into a ball and used up another rolled ball on another project.

 

So for my posting
