I gave her 54 skeins +108 I made 4 baskets in the couple days with t-shirt yarn +8 I used up a skein on temperature blanket +2 and rolled a ball +1 . I used up a whole bunch of my odds and end cotton balls to make hot pads +19 Total Score WTD +138

I'm hoping to finish a few more skeins on these blocks for charity.

I used up one skein so far, but I've used it on a large project that I'm going to need at least 10 more skeins for :( maybe I can break them up over the next couple of weeks

Found out Mikey is coming back to the Caron factory a couple towns over next week and collecting squares for Warm Up America, so I've been working on making as many as I can to get the free tshirt yarn when I go!  Made 11 squares between yesterday and today, using up 5 balls so .... WTD +5, YTD +5!  Off to change my signature now!

Wow.  It's been over a month since I posted.  :eek

 

I didn't even realize it had been that long... Anyhoozle...

 

A few weeks ago, I found a couple skeins at the Salvation Army Store.  They looked lonely, and even though I didn't have anything in mind for them, I went ahead a bought them and brought them home with me.  Then, a friend of mine was over for some anti-anxiety conversation, and fell in love with those two little skeins, so I told her to take them home with her.  Apparently, the reason I bought them was so she could have them - and I knew the reason would be a great one!  :manyheart

 

There hasn't been any other yarn acquired or used since I last posted... so - my score for the month of April is...

 

WTD 0

 

YTD +12

As a warning I don't think the YTD I posted is correct but mobile doesn't show the Signatures so I can't check it yet
