OK so...remember when I said I wasn't going to order any more yarn cause I have too much...yeah....oh well, I had good intentions lol

I should be receiving the skeins for my mother's dragon on Friday...that's 24 Caron Cakes...and then I just ordered another 42 skeins (Impeccable & RHSS) from Michaels because they were on sale....sigh....I'm just going to take the hit for all of it this week and get it over with so I can start digging my way out of this hole....

I welcome you & Mona down here in the "Shoot the Moon" club! I was getting lonely. :ghug We all know our stash almost never has the required yarn for the project we're eyeing next!

This, right here.  I visited Ravelry today for the first time in weeks and saw what was happening.  I've decided to leave but really wanted a community of crocheters to still be a part of, and that's when I went looking for and found C'ville.  So, thanks for being here!  And I'm glad to see I'm not the only one.  :) 

Welcome to the 'Ville! Happy to have you here & joining our little thread. We work hard to bust our stash & we also understand those weak moments of temptation.

Thanks, Debbie!  I'm working on getting my crochet mojo back so my yarn purchases have been slim to none lately, but I can foresee a time in the not-to-distant future where I'm joining you in the Shoot the Moon club.  😉

I hope to gather enough energy to crochet a little this afternoon, but I don't expect to use up any yarn.

Another big ol' zero for me again this week. I work on one project or another every day, but don't seem to be getting much done. At least I'm not going backward again!

WTD 0

Have a happy week everyone!

Sadly, I did work on my sweater this week, but didn't use up skeins, so:

WTD = 0

Hi everyone ♡

Ok so this week I called my Pheonix CAL done, and made a second baby blanket from the Cosmic CAL pattern. I used a total of 4 skeins and a ball on those projects.  I also got a good start on the Kiefer the Forest Dragon pattern and used 3 skeins on that....but....I also received the 24 skeins I ordered for Kiefer and ordered myself 40 more, 3 of which Michaels.com then cancelled due to lack of stock. So I WAS doing really good but then, a sale happened. 

WTD : -107-107

YTD : -85

I'll have fun digging myself out of the hole.  On the hook this week is a uterus/placenta/baby set of teaching aids for a doula friend of mine (which I'm REALLY excited to make), as much progress as possible on my Kiefer dragon, and possibly a little guitar stuffy for a friend's baby. ♡

Including pictures of my completed Pheonix (I ended mine partway through section 8), the completed body of Kiefer next to my 5 yr old for size reference, and the first of 2 back feet on my big planner for size reference.

I see the scores are not posted yet. I found another Sugar & Cream and made another potholder (+ 2)  :yay . 

I have 2 new grand nieces  :manyheart . One born on June 28th the other on the 4th of July (A Yankee Doodle Dandy  :lol). They're in Maine and New Hampshire, so I might not see them for awhile. Got some sweet photos.

Jessie, I love your Phoenix blanket. I ordered the yarn for that pattern--part of my negative this week.

Ellie....yay!!! Happy babies ♡♡

Mona...I've loved making the Phoenix! I stopped about halfway through section 8 and it's nearly 4 ft square.

I  :crocheting 3 hats, another potholder and 4 pocket prayer shawls so far this week. I used 1 skein and 2 balls and rolled a skein down (+ 5)  :cheer . I need to think of something to do with 8 skeins Simply Soft in rainbow colors and white. The Cozy Project doesn't meet in July and Aug., but we still have access the :yarn in a cabinet at the library. Maybe I can donate it, but then I might be tempted to take some too :lol . 

WTD:  + 5  YTD:  + 80

Ellie, you may have said in the past, but what pattern do you use for the pocket prayer shawls?

I’m going to wait to post until later. I’m hoping to use up another skein on my sweater this evening!  I’m so close!

Hi everyone ♡ I received all that yarn I bought last week! But I counted it last week so I don't have to go negative again now 😁 

This week I used up 3 balls on an anatomical uterus/baby/placenta set that my friend asked me to make for her (she's a doula lol) and finished another skein on my ginormous dragon. 

WTD: +5

YTD: -80

I was told today that a friend's boyfriend has 3 bags of yarn for me....when I asked him why he had yarn for me (because we don't know each other well at all) he said "well, you YARN, right?" Yeah, I yarn lol so I guess at some point I'm going to get a bunch of random yarn? Lately my stash has ballooned from 2 bins that weren't full all the way to 4 FULL bins...plus the box I just got this week lol. Is it bad I'm kind of hoping he forgets to ever give it to me??? 

I don't expect to get much crochet done this upcoming week,  as all of my teachers have apparently decided the last 3 weeks of the semester is the perfect time to assign a million projects.  But I just have to get through this week and things *should* calm down some. 

I'll be posting scores around noonish tomorrow ♡
