I found a bag of yarn at the thrift store last month and made it a personal challenge to use it all up in one month. I did it!

As soon as my blog gets approved, I'll post pictures of my weekly progress. Well. I'll *try* to post pics. "Barb" and "tech savvy" are three words that never appear in the same sentence...lol.

Oh my, Barb...my fingers are getting twitchy just looking at this collection.  :))

Here's my end of the month update. I did it! Well, almost.

I made 61 PJ squares for this month's theme from all that yarn. All I have left is a plastic grocery store bag of little balls leftover. I'm working on those for this month's theme of stripes. When I'm finished those, I'll post a pic or two.

Woo Hoo!! *\0/*

61 is an amazing feat, Barb!! You have done well!! Can't wait to see what you create from all your 'left-overs'....but hey, NO PRESSURE......LOLOL

So that yarn diet.....uh huh.....

Had to go to Michael's today for a few things, navy yarn being one of them. I don't have much selection out here in the sticks and the only navy I could find wasn't dark enough, IMO. So I bought 4 large balls. I HAD to! *giggle*

But, so far this year, my yardage out has exceeded my yardage in, so it's all good!

Oh well, diets are made to be cheated on....lol.

Congrats on the outgoings being greater than the incomings....wish I could say the same....sigh. I did go to the city last weekend and only bought ONE ball of yarn....but that's only because they didn't have any thick navy yarn....Lol.

I got 85 squares from all that yarn. All that's left is a walnut sized ball of peach. I should have put it in the same pic as the stack, but it's already been worked up into another square. Oops.

Oh Barb, I'm glad its already been used, it looks so lonely sitting there by itself.....lolol.

Fabulous effort!!!!!

Just went back for another peek at your yarn stash for the 85 sqs....and saw the date!!!!!....wow, you're good!!!!....you have been 'onto it'.  :))

Thanks, Bev. Bulky yarn works up so much faster than worsted.

My next personal challenge is to use up all this yarn. Check out the details here.


Please post your guess in that thread. :-)

Hey all! We've been at our winter home in Yucatan, Mexico since the end of October, so I haven't been able to do any work for KAS. The logistics of trying to send anything from here is just too daunting. However, that doesn't mean I haven't been busy. :-)

Now c'mon, Barb......don't tease..........lol

Sorry, Bev. It took a few tries to get the pictures to post. :-)
