2020 Stashbusting CAL

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

This week I finished off my Halloween Rozeta (wedding gift for a friend) AND I joined my Jewels and Pastels Rozetas and made a big floor pillow for my oldest's room. I am officially DONE with Rozetas for now! At some point in the future,  I'll make one for myself but I cannot handle the idea of making another one just now ☺️

WTD +7 (2 skeins & 3 balls)

YTD +89

I've only got 1 final WIP that I have to work on now....my Keifer the Dragon. I've got all his body parts (except the wings)done, so next up is attaching and stuffing before I move on to the wing directions. Momma would like to have him finished for her birthday at the end of April, but I'm hoping it will be well before that!

I figure I’ll probably do the totals this afternoon sometime after 1:00 pm. That will give people time who perhaps haven’t updated their scores yet. 😎

No scores yet :think ? Good. I finished the afghan :cheer . Sat. I did a MLK service project crocheting hats for charity. I took some skein/balls to donate. I donated 1 ball and 2 skeins (+ 5). I made 5 baby hats, I used 2 small skeins and a ball (+5). I took home 3 skeins and a ball (- 7).  So I'll add + 3 to my score.

WTD: + 8  YTD:  + 14

Pam, I love the colors!

I got sucked down the rabbit hole this afternoon. I ordered not one but two yarn packs for Attic 24's Dahlia Blanket CAL. Yes, that really is 30 skeins. I've done a couple of her CALs and with one pack I ended up not doing a border because the yarn was running short. Should be plenty to make the twin size and a lap throw, too.

I've just got a couple more rounds to go on the baby blanket. Time to get off the computer, check the dryer and get back to it.

I'm on the last round and used up a skein..+2.

@PBLKNP  Wow! Those are beautiful colors! Sophie is so much fun!

@greyhoundgrandma  I saw the announcement for that CAL. I seriously considered making it. 

I started the Spice Market CAL this weekend. It was supposed to start in March but the designer cancelled it due to some ugliness on Facebook. Anyway, he released the entire pattern.

Debbie, pretty colors. I looked up that pattern and it is stunning. Very tempting to add it to my list. LOL

I just ordered a baby blanket kit from Mary Maxim--6 skeins. Had some yarn, but couldn't find the pattern I wanted to use. Pretty sad statement about the state of my patterns. I really, really need to come up with some system for organizing and storing them.

Hi all!

I only used a couple of balls this week on shelter mats. I used almost all my little bits & pieces in my leftover bin. Most of that was counted as a whole skein when it was used.

Thanks Jessie! finished Part 3 of the Spice Market. 

WTD +2  YTD +27

Have a Happy week!

I made 3 baby hats and 8 pocket prayer shawls. I used 3 balls (+ 3), but then a friend gave me a skein (- 2). I'm getting all the balls and going to make pocket prayer shawls, then give away what's too small. I hope to have a better score next weekend.

WTD:  + 1   YTD:  + 15

Thanks, Pam! They are really quick and easy to make. I left off the 4th round and edging because I liked the size at that point for kids. It's My Heart Dishcloth by Janelle Schlossman.
