I've been feverishly working on my socks and the Sophie's Universe afghan, but no skeins used up, so:

WTD = 0

YTD = -8

Sorry all...I attempted to type my totals out using my Amazon Fire tablet, and the dratted emojis just popped up and I couldn't erase them!  Strange.

Sounds like some good sales! That's a lot of yarn to use in a week! I started to tell you last time that -20 really wasn't being very bad, but thought maybe that wouldn't sound very nice. LOL Do you have plans for the yarn already?

Lots of plans!  I make baby, child, and teen afghans for the local children's hospital.  I was just told they needed blankets and so many gorgeous colors went on sale.  It was meant to be!  ❤️

I sent the wallet/passport pouch to my brother on Sat., he should get it by tomorrow. I should get an e-mail from him when he gets it. Meanwhile, I made 2 baby hats, 2 pocket prayer shawls and another wallet/passport pouch. I used 2 small skeins and a ball (+ 5)  :cheer. Earlier tonight, at my knit/crochet group, I taught a new member how to make a granny square. It's nice to be able to pass on your skills to someone else.

WTD:  + 5  YTD:  + 40

I was almost done with my ginormous dragon....finished the wings, went to take pictures just before attaching them....and realized I made 2 left wings! All the detail stitches are on the wrong side of 1 of the wings! And I've woven in all my tails already so now I have to pick them all out and redo them on the other side before I can attach them. 

I was so frustrated that I put the wings into time out for the night and worked on something else....I'll fix the wing tomorrow....

Oh, no, Jessie! I really hate when I do something like that. Hope you can find your ends and get it fixed.

Inkked0317  - Oh no Jessie! It's so frustrating when those things happen. You did the right thing, put it away & work on something that makes you happy.

I really should just delete emails without looking at them. Just got one from Mary Maxim with 29¢ shipping on $29+ orders. Now I'm trying to decide if there's anything I really need to order.

Took an hour & 40 minutes.  Unpicked all the veining, found all the ends, restitched on the opposite side.  Now this looks better ♡

Dragon is DONE!!!! Holy moly I'm so happy I made him but never again lol. $300 in yarn, $50 in stuffing,  96.5 hours in my hands.....I love him but I'm ready for him to go to his forever home at my mom's house lol. 

And my girls are already asking for their own dragons....sigh....I told them I need some time making non-stuffed things and then I have other, SMALLER dragon patterns they can pick from lol

@greyhoundgrandma - Mona- I try to skip on past those emails too. With National Crochet Month starting tomorrow, we'll be inundated with sales!

@Inkked0317 - Jessie - Your dragon is MAGNIFICENT! 

I worked on the Spice Market CAL...so slow going. I'm up to Part 7. Over 700 stitches per round now. At least it's in thread & I don't have a heavy blanket laying on me while I work. I finished off 3 skeins of thread & 1 skein of RHSS on a tote bag.

WTD +8  YTD -136

Y'all have a Happy week!

Another Annie's Attic shipment for the Seaside Sampler afghan came in today!  I've been slogging through some knitting projects, so I'm excited to do some more crocheting.  So:

So I don't have any points to add from the dragon, but I did make a little lamb lovie today and used up a skein!

WTD +2

YTD +99

I got an email from a friend who is wanting to downsize her stash, so I know at some point I'm going to get a few boxes with an unknown amount of yarn in it...looking forward to that even if it means taking a hit on my points lol. 

I have several people who are asking me if I can make them a stuffie....but honestly after that dragon I just don't want to make ANYTHING stuffed for a while,  so I'm going to try my hand at some wearables for myself.  Should be interesting lol

Oh, my...shot the moon AGAIN!  I’ll make a note to do the totals next week. 😎

I have to say, I’m enjoying doing the Sampler Afghan!  They do give you a boatload of yarn for it, though. I’m probably going to have enough at the end for another afghan!

There may be issues with the stash totals again...it appears the Mary Maxim fairies arrived with a birthday present!

It’s the Woodland Stripes Throw kit! And no, I don’t know why my damn iPhone keeps posting these images topsy-turvy! 🤣
