    Stashbusting MAL WTD 0/YTD -178 (2020-712)(2019-642)(2018-109)
    Book Challenge 18/30 (2020-55)(2019-51)(2018-35)

    I've come to the conclusion that collecting yarn, and using yarn are two entirely separate hobbies.
    Crochet Is My Yoga

    Part of my recent yarn order came in yesterday. I have a feeling I'll be doing the dance this week and next. That being said, I'm super excited for what I ordered, lots of Patons Kroy for the colorwork in a Spark Cardigan and some extra for socks. My order is big enough for 2 cardigans and 6 pairs of socks -52. I also completed a pair of Solar socks for a gift for my mother-in-law +1, and a pair of self-striping vanilla socks that I dyed myself +1. I also used up one remnant in a scrappy blanket +1.

    WTD -49, YTD -19
    2021 Stashbuster MAL WTD -20, YTD -128

    Knitting not only relaxes me, it also brings a feeling of being at home.

    Properly practiced, knitting soothes the troubled spirit, and it doesn't hurt the untroubled spirit either.

      That's a lot of "some" ... great stashbusting!

    I finished the April Dollar Tree $10 Challenge, started by a YouTube Channel. The larger blanket is not quite big enough, so it will now become an actual stashbuster.

    WTD = +10

    Stashbuster MAL 2021: WTD = -32, YTD = -109

        I was productive this week and I made no purchases. I’m out of polyfil. I hate how expensive it is now.

          I started using some of my left over scrappy yarn ends in addition to my polyfil.

          I use cushion/pillow for my toys filling, instead of special one. No difference in quality, but saves me a lot of money.

        I had 2 skeins come in and finished 2
