I've managed to use up two more balls of sock yarn today.

Wait, it gets better.

When I went to the yarn shop and two quilt shops yesterday, I manged to only buy what I needed for the project I am currently working on.

And....

When I go to the thrift store searching out sweaters to take apart for the yarn, I have a project in mind for those too and am only buying what will work for that project.

It is kind of amazing, the extra money I have left over when I don't just buy crafting supplies indiscriminately. And I am getting more things actually finished.

Yay! Cheesy

Wow--you made those weights so quickly!  They look great...I am going to make some in a round flat shape as well...

So far, I have not purchased anything for about two weeks, except a crochet book... Cheesy  I have a feeling I will be buying some yarn to make those, but NO FABRIC...

I also have tons of scarves and old clothes to cut up and use (stuff not even goodwill would want...even the less fortunate want to look nice and fashionable...)

My goodness, I've missed the past 13 pages or so. Must not have gotten my notification, or something, and as usual I forgot to check! So much to catch up on!

apm, I had to use my leg when I started, too. And my mom still uses her leg (well, stomach actually), and I taught her early last year. Smiley
Congrats on the anatomy grade! Awesome!
Loving the wallets!

always, you are so right. There is always a sale. I don't usually get anything unless it's really on sale or I have a coupon.

clm, I love when you get on a crafting tear! And way to go on the show! You killed it!

ysmeine, Sir Geoffrey is all kinds of awesome! I love his back story.
Those trivets look great! I love the second one!
The scarf is beautiful!

Antidigger, I've made a similar TARDIS cloth before. Smiley I love the colors you added! And great looking circle coasters.

gaudi, that quant is really pretty!
Thanks for organizing this and giving us a place to (try to) be frugal together!
