If the internet actually worked.

Of course, the internet gets super frustrating when I am home for a whole week, on and off my computer for school and crafts. Its slowness can't even be blamed on too many laptops using internet in the house because neither of my brothers are home, and my sister and I are only doing super basic stuff with our internet. All this to say that I am super sorry for no pictures today. I uploaded a few to Rav early today, but forgot to grab my WIP pics.

So, in progress this week I have Ananas Crocheted Shawlette, a LB Homespun infinity scarf (color Tulips), and yarn drying for Stephanie's Wrap. Also, a few plain hats for fall craft show stuff, but those usually get pushed to the end of the list. I am honestly trying to stash-down, and all of the projects are using stash yarn-- I even had to make do with what I had on hand so I could start working on Stephanie's Wrap. Both of the shawls are part of CSW's Support a Designer CAL, where all those participating in the CAL pick a pattern made by a member designer. A few of the participants are crocheting the same pattern, but the idea is more to get project pages attached to patterns that might not have as many projects.

My Cold Sheep progress for March was pretty good, especially with help from the CSAL. I was able to use up 2400 yards of stash. I'll admit that some of it was new yarn, but the out was greater than the in. My goal for April is to only use stash yarn, no purchases at all, and to beat my yardage total from March. Since I'm already nearing 500 and it's only April 3, I think my chances of surpassing 2400 yards used are pretty good. We shall see.

I'm linking up with Tami for WIP Wednesday and Ginny for Yarn-Along, as both share lots of yarny goodness on Wednesdays!! :-)


  1. Wow, you have been a busy bunny! Look forward to seeing some pics - maybe next week ;)

  2. There are a couple of Resolutions threads on Ravelry, and I'm doing a link-up for posts about resolutions from now! If you want any support with keeping resolutions, there are a fantastic bunch of people doing just that on Rav! I'm looking forward to seeing some photos when you manage to get them!

  3. I don't know what cold sheep is, but I applaud using up 2,400 yards of stash!

  4. Cold Sheep is a group on Ravelry that supports stashing down-- they started as a group that went "cold sheep" ie, no yarn purchases, but has expanded a bit from that in the last year or so. It's like many of the Stash-down groups on Rav.


I love knowing that you stopped by!
