Jessie, if it includes yarn that you have no interest in, you can always donate it. Sorry, but I had to laugh about 4 bins of yarn. You would be shocked at what I have. I can't resist sales and always have more project ideas than I could possible complete. I get in trouble when I go ahead and buy the yarn for a project and then don't get around to it for a while. I have learned to put the pattern with the yarn, so I don't open a bag/box next year and can't remember what I was going to make with that yarn. LOL Or I buy yarn for a project, start it, and realize that I hate the pattern and don't make it.

I just ordered an afghan kit on sale at Mary Maxim. It doesn't say how many skeins of yarn there will be. I haven't been able to get in a constructive mindset this afternoon so just passing time with this or that.

Mona thank you so much!! My bonus daughter and her hubby showed up around 11 AM on Sunday and completely surprised me! They live in NJ and were having their honeymoon weekend in MD (4 months after the wedding), but they got bored and decided to just drive the extra 5 hours to NC and walked through my front door!!  They stayed overnight and just left. I'm so sorry to have missed posting the scores but man, what a great reason to miss it lol. I'll take the scores next week since there was no shoot the moon for the week. Now I'm off to get into the schoolwork I need to get done for tonight!

 I finally got some crocheting done yesterday. The first two parts of the planet earth cal. Not a great picture, but I did learn how to post the picture from my phone instead of emailing it to myself and then posting from my desktop computer.

Here's the first one. I'm putting up peas instead of doing the border on the second one this afternoon.

I would love it if you cross-posted this in Show-and-Tell🙏 I'd like to see this community lively again :compute and I think Show-and-Tell is a great place to start.

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

I designed it myself, but I have not written it down. There's a stitch I made up that I'm not sure how to describe. I'll try to write it down. It would be considered an advanced pattern.

I gave a skein and matching ball to a friend and made another potholder. I finally got to roll down the pounder of cotton (+ 4) :cheer . A lady I work with makes jewelry and wants to make earrings with my butterfly and flower pins. She's into sewing and other crafts, but not :crocheting or  :knit .

WTD: + 4   YTD: + 84

Ellie 13

That is stunningly beautiful!  I'm going to wait to post my scores, as I think I'm ALMOST done with a skein.  Hoping to get some crafting time in this evening while watching TV.

@Inkked0317 Jessie, your hot air balloon baby blanket is so impressive! Really nice colors and so neatly done. Would you pretty please cross-post this pic in Show-and-Tell? 🙏 I'm trying to get this place buzzing again :compute and I think Show-and-Tell is so accessible to newbies and others visiting the forum.

Used up a skein!  I’ve been doing a training program for work, so I’ve been insanely busy. I finally got a bit of crafting time in, so:

Good morning! My name is Mona and I am an addict!

I just made a list of the projects that have yarn assigned to them and are sitting there waiting--19! And I'm sure a missed a few. Not to mention all the patterns I want to make that I don't have the yarn specifically for and all the yarn that is sitting around waiting for a project.

I fully embrace my addiction and enjoy every minute of it!

Happy crocheting!
