Bummer. I hate it when that happens. I had yarn like that once. When I would try to frog it, it would ruin the yarn. So annoying.

Craftster has gone mobile!  Read the big news here!

Destashed 3/4 a skein into the bin as I went wrong somewhere and couldn't frog it  Sad I'm left with just over two full skeins that I don't fancy using now and sis still hasn't got a b'day gift.
That sucks!

But the scarf is beautiful. There are so many great patterns on that site.

Maybe I should add to my yarn stash while I'm destashing my fabric Wink

But would have to stick with knitting patterns

I wish my lipstick was a little more ... HALLUCINOGENIC!

I've made quite a few hats and fingerless glove sets and will post pics when I finish this last hat. Not too motivated.

I have a split personality, because you guys crack me up.  AND The best day I ever had was TODAY!

Mohair yarn is the worst. It's almost impossible to pull out. I frog everything at least once. It's so pretty, but I've learned that mohair just isn't for me.

I haven't gotten much done at all, but I did finish a dish/washcloth for my father out of the same cotton yarn I used for the swiffer cover. He washes his dishes with a washcloth, so I figured I would make him a nice sturdy one to use instead. Maybe I'll crochet him a drying cloth next...
Every time I plan on working on organising, something comes up and I can't. I haven't bought any new craft supplies (except for a tube of E6000 glue to replace one that had busted)- as a matter of fact, except for that trip (and I went right to the glue and right back out), I haven't been to a craft or thrift store all month, so that's a start!

Yesterday, in between the bouts of couching, I went through and pulled some fabric from my outside building. I want to make hats to sell so I needed to see what sort of 'extra' fabric I could spare before I went out and bought any more.

I managed to find 14 yards, 14 yards of suitable fabric. I figured I might find 4 or 5 yards. I still have over 80 yards of fabric that I can see.  Sad  This does not include the fabric stashed in other places.

I should be rich once I finish using or selling all of my excess fabric off this year.  Roll Eyes

Meowari, it is difficult to run into and then straight back out of craft stores, isn't it? But I've begun to do the same thing in the grocery store too. Maybe I can save enough money to take a vacation this summer just by this one trick.  Cheesy

Crafting 'cause I can't help myself

Having one of those days where it feels as if I will never be done organizing and destashing my supplies. Right now organization is the really big thing though last night as I was sorting out 12" paper by color (solids in one rack, patterns in another) I started pulling out paper I did not like but had kept "just in case" we have a reuse market that recycles used and unwanted craft supplies and I now have about 35 sheets of 12x12" paper and card stock for them.
Intellectually I know I am making huge progress and that it is one of those down winter days so I know I will get over it but I only have a week and a half til deadline (which is my subversive Valentine's day crafting party in 10 days) and there is still so much to do and I am kind of overwhelmed.

There must be another person with the same username as mine....Cheesy...I don't think I would send yarn to another person who is trying to destash.... Grin

I found 8 skeins of gold Vanna White Yarn, the huge skeins, so I started crocheting an afghan...I am determined to make it through January without spending anymore that I have (less than $60)....I know Valentines Day is coming, but I think I have enough red, white and pink yarns and fabrics to get through...

I am going to make a mini list of my February destashing goals this weekend...we can get through this together...

Love seeing the yarn goodies--hats, monsters...they all help!

If anyone wants to make fake beards without using plastic canvas....I made one last year for rackycoo using single crochet as the base...I then attached the yarns to the crochet base...it really was easy and soft on the face as well...

Trina--you've just gotta break it into steps, then focus on the completion of those steps.  That might help you feel like you're accomplishing something.  You might also look at those steps and decide which are the most neccessary, and which would be nice to get done but can be let go to reduce your stress level.  You can do it!

I have boxes of vintage piano music.  Some as old as 1890's!  PM me if you'd like some!

I am most certainly getting through my stash of nylon webbing and plastic buckles, Sharnie has eaten another collar so I had to replace it.
I'm also working on another Divine hat with some grey/white yarn that was leftover for Xmas knitting a few years ago.It all helps  Smiley
