    I am sure it is posted somewhere and I missed it, but how do you count cones and jumbo skeins? For example, I have a 400g cone of cotton. Would it be +2 as one item or +8 (4 times standard size 100g balls)?

      Okay, that makes sense. It also means that my incoming advent calendars will only be -4 instead of -96.

      I purchased a bunch of 50 gram ball packs of 10 earlier this year. Each pack -20 😳😱 Lots of points against, but when I use them, that score will bounce back quickly.

    I finished the first Christmas mitten! It's still not blocked, I'll wait until I have a pair for that.

      Shauna825 I did a bit of a search and couldn't find the one you mention but I discovered that BadWolfGirl has a super cute pattern on Etsy! So guess what I'll be making my Harmoni for Christmas? 😁

    Look what I got today!!
    This is what I ordered 8 skeins from Simply Sock Yarn.

    And 12 skeins from my DIL!!

      Char I took those pics with my 35mm camera, I'm not so good at using the tablet to take pics. I usually take the part of the label that names the colorway, but I'll try and post the other way around. Do you want all the skeins or just the ones DIL sent.

      I can see the simply sock yarn purchase just fine. I'm very intrigued by all of the lightly speckled yarns.

      Thanks y'all! I forgot to say this was mostly Red Heart Unforgettable yarn. No pattern. It's such a nice yarn. I really need to get some more one of these days.

      This is wonderful! And it really is an accomplishment that must feel so very good after 20 months. Kudos on the finish. Did you ever get tired of working on it?
