Until this weekend, when I was faced with crushing boredom. I started the second sock on Saturday morning, but I'm not going to bore you with another blow-by-blow on that. Once is enough!
And then Sunday I was still unbelievably bored, so I did a whole bunch of work on the loom.
I threaded all the heddles, which took several hours and left me with a very sore back (you have to reach over and through the loom to get the next thread and put it through the heddle, and I don't have a great chair for my loom ... it's not at the right height so I have to hunch way over).
|Here we are about a third of the way done. I had to stop and stretch and do other things between each repeat of the pattern or my back would probably have seized up.|
|And here we are, all 329 ends threaded through and shoved over to the right. On to the next step!|
|That's what I like to see: order out of chaos.|
|Here it is from the top, looking all nice and orderly.|
|So. Very. Dusty.|
What else did I do this weekend to try to alleviate the boredom? I washed the windows, gave the stove top a deep clean, read a book from start to finish, watched one bad movie and one good movie, and busted out the nail polish. It's spring now so it's time to release the toes!
