2016 Stashbusting CAL

Recommended Posts

Gee,how did I resist yarn buying this week,Our Michaels store relocated,and had Loops and thread yarn at 1.29 only Wed.and Thurs.

well Wednesday I was homebound with sil,while daughter had a procedure on her leg. Thursday,I thought about it,and thought at that price would there be any colors that I really wanted,probably not,so I resisted going up there.

I have 12 nest complete and # 13 is a 1/3 of the way done.

 

wtd + 38 ytd + 77

I didn't get in in time this morning and forgot to post before we went out last night... I can add it to next week if want. My scores definitely won't change any medal winners! We got a bunch of yarn cleaned out yesterday but it's all still sitting upstairs so I'm not counting it until it's out the door!

 

WTD +4 YTD -52

My scores HAVE to start improving soon. We had our nephew here this weekend (He's 18 but paired with my kids, it's like having 4 young ones around lol) he wanted to come visit from college 2.5 hours away, so I didn't even crochet at all this weekend. I'm GOING to finish the unicorn this week, which should help my scores a bit because I'll use small balls (I think if I have enough) for the mane. Gonna start a new afghan too! But I know I'll have to go grab at least ONE skein to finish that because it calls for 4 skeins + some for the border, and I got 3 of them on clearance at HL a few weeks ago, but need one more coordinating color to go with (cream, brown & green). I will be doing the Eat Play Sleep Repeat 'ghan,

In the mean time I've bought 10 new skeins of yarn and gotten four balls from my Aunt for a project!

Okay I'm adding my +4 from last week to this week and so far I've been cleaning out the craft room... I found a LOT of yarn sealed in tubs that just reeked of smoke when my ex and I smoked in the house almost 10 years ago and it was horrible! I don't smoke at all anymore so it was really noticeable... All of that yarn went straight to the garbage.  :cry  I should have said some words over the can, but I just couldn't save it. 18 skeins and 16 balls right to the garbage. Sigh. So +56 for the week so far (including that 4 from last week) and all of a sudden I'm at 0 again for the YTD. I still have more to go to Goodwill and that will happen later in the week.  :yes

OMG no you didn't throw it away! You could of put it out in the yard on a table and just left it for the air to get to it and the smell would of left. My sister hubby smokes all the time and she sent me a box of yarn and it reeked of smoke. All's I did was take it from the box and left it out to breathe . Now I didn't work with the yarn for over a month and the smell was gone.I'm crying with you.

I used up the first skein on another baby blanket...+2  = +3

The second skein has been used up in this blanket...+2   = +5

 

I'm scheduled for a crocheting afternoon with a friend, so I hope to finish the blanket and work on another afghan. I think I'm close to finishing 2 skeins on it.
