I thought I was doing really well this week with using up some stash, then my hubby went and bought me 60 skeins of yarn.  I love him but even though I was on the plus side with 8, after his thoughtfulness I am at a great big WTD-112

I finished the scarf and used a skein :cheer (+ 2). I made another dish scrubbie and used a ball of cotton :clap (+ 1). I started another scarf, it might be done by Sun. afternoon or Mon. night. These scarves work up fast, no counting rows, you just work the skein down to about a yard left. I might get 3 done by next Sat.

WTD: + 3  YTD: + 38

WTD: +10

 

Looks all great now with a +61 YTD... And then I go to the Spinrite Factory Tent Sale on Monday... That's going to be trouble!!   :woo

It won't hold, because I ran out of a couple of colors for one of my projects, but for this week, I'm in the positive for YTD.

Well, I behaved myself this week, but I'm weaving in massive amounts of ends for my intarsia baby blanket, so I didn't use up any skeins.

Big Stashbusting this week.

 

I have a couple friends who I have invited over to "shop" my yarn as I still have quite the overly large stash o' yarn. One did come by this week and took off with 11 skeins of yarn. I have been working on hats for charity, as well as I just started a double strand afghan.  So I used 1 skein and 12 balls this week.

 

WTD:+36 YTD: +20

Nothing bought and nothing used.  My son has one more month of school and about two months worth of projects.  Yikes!  I've been helping to do research, but we're moving along slowly!  Crunch time!

Oh My Goodness... I'm slightly embarrassed... :2blush

 

I haven't been on here in over two weeks - life has just been busy. 

 

I need to send a great big :ty out to greyhoundgrandma for posting the scores for me last week!  I'm so sorry I didn't do it.  I was pretty sure I would shoot the moon and then I never even checked.

 

Looks like everyone is having fun ~ either adding to their stash or using it up!  :clap

 

I haven't ~ my score has been a big ol' goose egg for the past two weeks. 

 

Thanks again, Mona, for posting the scores.  :hug

No problem, Melani. I had to post the YTD scores last week anyway. I'm looking forward to May not being as busy as April has been. Hope yours will slow down, too.

 

I rolled a one pounder into a ball...+1.

Today's email included a notice that I'm a winner in Red Heart's Learn a Stitch Make a Drop Stitch Crochet Cowl giveway. I think that will be 3 skeins of yarn... not sure if it will make it here this week or next.

Oh dear, it's time to get off the computer. I'm not even sure how I ended up on ebay, but I just bought 6 cones of cotton--a good price and really cheap postage. At least it won't be here until next week.

 

 

 

Well, I've redeemed myself somewhat. I started looking for something which resulted in an avalanche and the discovery of some forgotten yarn. I rolled 4 yarn barfs/skeins into balls...+4    = +3 for the week so far.
