2016 Stashbusting CAL

Recommended Posts

We don't seem to have too much snow here...not that I'm complaining! In the meantime, I'm attempting to finish a skein before the end of the night.

Finished off a ball I didn't even know I had and rolled another to keep working on a doll dress for +2

Watching all the news about the blizzard makes me very happy that I now live in the south!  I grew up in Ohio & Michigan, and I learned how to crochet during the blizzard of 1978.  :flake   I sure hope everyone is doing okay!  We usually don't have "real" winters here in Texas, but I truly hate some of the temperature swings we have.  This week, it's ranged from the mid-sixties to wind chills in the teens.  That's probably why I've got a case of bronchitis right now.  :sick   But, it's given me the chance to get a little bit of crocheting done this weekend.  I used up three balls in my stash, but then I went and bought a skein of Caron Simply Soft.  So, not a great score this week, but at least something!

 

WTD:  +1  YTD:  -3

Lot of late nights this week, so did some hat and scarf sets.  Just in time for the snow, over 2 ft here and the wind is still howling.  WTD+24

Looks like you matched your score to the inches of snow!  LOL  Be careful out there... :hug

I was going to do something yarny today.  I promise, I was.  I have zero inspiration, so I can't tell you what that yarny thing might have been, but it's a moot point anyway because it never happened... :(

 

Perhaps tomorrow.  We shall see.  I also have things I need to do for my job tomorrow, and I suppose that needs to happen first.  LOL

 

:hug

Trying not to buy yarn until I finish a project, so far so good. I did roll leftover yarn into a ball.

WTD: -8 YTD: -8...

 

I guess that probably makes me the chump... I almost never buy yarn, but this week I went to two stores because I was almost out of white and black!

I didn't use up ANY yarn this week, and sadly, only brought enough with me for my temperature afghan =/ I've got that caught up & have been reading tons though...

+1 Starting the week rolling a ball to work on another doll dress.  This is where I start getting into a bit of trouble.  I think this is the last skein of pale pink I have.  So while I'm glad to be making stuff with yarn on hand, I use lots of pink, so I'm going to eventually have to get more.

Y'all are on the ball already!! I'm struggling.. I just don't even feel like picking up a hook. Maybe it's because I only brought enough yarn with me to work on my temp ghan.. Not sure why I didn't pack more =/

Bleh, I have an order for a panda bear, and I may have to get more yarn for that... I can't seem to be able to help myself! We'll see, I ask the person who ordered it if it's ok to do with the yarn I already have. Otherwise I might just do it double stranded.

Well there went my score... 

-8. 

Bought a pattern to work on since the only yarn I brought with me was for my temperature ghan. 

 

I got 3 different shades of purple and aran so I can make a dragon fly afghan by Charmed by Ewe.
