Last weekend I didn't have anything to post, although I had did some crocheting the majority of my time two weeks ago was spent working on the kitchen wall. This week I knew I just had to get in some serious crocheting. I have a rug almost completed, and I also have a table topper just about finished. WTD+18

I know this is a bit late but you did say people could join late so I hope this is okay! I am in! I need to stash down badly and this is just year for it. When do I need to post my first count?

Thanks CLLinda and Yarn Geek :hug for the warm welcome! Well for my first week I did not do so good, granted I did the buying all before I even thought about joining but it still counts. :blush

YTD: -6 & WTD: -6

I hope this will improve.. it has to. I am so glad I started using the skeins I bought right away, putting three into an afghan, and two into a shawl and two halves into a pair of gloves (I make both gloves at the same time or I get sock syndrome with them). Now I have a week off I should be able to work through at least the last 3 skeins and maybe some more. If this cold stays away and the rain stays. Wish me luck!
2012 Stashbusting: YTD:-6 WTD: -6 (hopefully this number will improve) as of 3/31/12
Any Afghan: 0 (but 7 started and need to finish, and one to frog)
WIP Wrangling: YTD: 0 finished, 2 started & WTD: 0 finished, 2 started (as of 3/31/12)
Currently Crocheting: Under my thumb gloves, Solas Coamh, Cherry Blossom Shawl, Blooming Flower Cushion

Well, this past week has found me swimming in new yarn! :devil

My DH came home from Germany and was sweet enough to bring me home 15 balls of alpaca yarn & 2 skeins of sock yarn! :manyheart

Before he came home, I had bought 10 skeins of yarn for a baby blanket I'm working on, AND I had placed an order with Knit Picks for 30 skeins of Brava yarn!

Thankfully, I've also been busy using up a few skeins this week, but not near enough to knock my score down that much. I've managed to use up a total of 6 skeins of yarn between working on the CAL & 2 baby blankets.

So my sore for this week and year to date are:

WTD: -102 / YTD: -97

I'm posting the scores next week, right? It'll probably be later in the day (late afternoon/early evening) before I can get them posted since it's Easter Sunday.

Oh! Almost forgot. I had to run my Michael's to pick up a skein of yarn since I rn out of a color I was using on a baby blanket & I only walked out with the 1 skein! And, I came home & finished off another skein as well as finished 2 baby blankets! So, I'm still at Zero for the week! I'm looking forward to using up yarn this week!
