Okay, since not many people have posted yet, I'm going to wait and post this afternoon.  We don't have enough people to make it even for the "Bronze" category...

You know it's a slow crochet week and everyone is busy with other stuff when +1 gets silver. LOL

 

I've been inside working on taxes and other boring stuff, but it's a gorgeous say here and I think I'm going to sneak outside for a while.

Ugh I started this week off BAD! I got an order for an afghan, that required 9 skeins of yarn... All Caron Simply Soft, which I'm not entirely a fan of working with.. Hard to work this week trying to get this -18 score into the positives! 

 

Stopped by Michaels & got it... So -18 for the week so far.

Hi!  I'd like to join this challenge.  I hadn't crocheted for a few years, but even then, I still bought some yarn.  Now that I am crocheting again, joined a guild where free skeins are handed out at meetings, and have new yarn friends, I need a way to keep my stash under control.

 

I'll join with the new week on Sunday and promise myself not to buy or receive (lol) any yarn before then.

All I was able to squeak out was a little bit of thread crochet this week. Not even enough to finish it!

I've been super busy with teaching and church that I barely have any free time. Hoping to get a little more done on this thread project today but probably won't. House cleaning and laundry are my main targets today.

Hi all!! This week I used up 3 balls making preemie hats (+3), I bought 7 skeins of Lion Brand's answer to Caron Cakes (-14), used 2 more skeins on my Firefly blanket (+4), and rolled the 18 partial skeins from the Firefly blanket into balls (+18). I'm nearly finished with the blanket! I just have to make a banner piece to go across the top, but I'm waiting on the pattern to be released before I can start that.

 

WTD : +11

YTD : +182

 

A friend has asked me to make him a Firefly blanket, so I'll be starting that huge project all over again soon. Luckily, I think I've got all the yarn I need to make it without buying any!  

 

Yesterday I got a job! This is my first position I'll have since summer of 2004, when I was 6 months pregnant with my 2nd daughter. I'm excited to get back into the work force, but I'm a little blue that it will certainly impact my hooking time lol.

I was going to use up a skein, but I switched from my knitting to my crochet-along project, so...
