A Friday list!

I realize that the week is over, so I thought I would put together a Friday list for you.

A. is working for several hours today, so I am home alone. Here’s the big long impossible list of things I could work on.

-A couple of hours of data entry

-Call the insurance company to make sure they got the April payment. I have a receipt, but the portal shows no payment. This could eat up some time. Luckily I can knit while on hold!

-I would like to work on warping the loom for the next set of dish towels. I started a few weeks ago, but haven’t been able to get back to it. I doubt I will finish it in one sitting; the height is wrong for me and after an hour or so, my back aches.

-And I need to set a schedule for myself with daily goals to knit my Gramercy Park sweater. I really want to wear it this spring, so it needs to get knit! The back is done, I am working my way up the front, I am almost to the waist. So it’s possible, with goals.

-Then there is housework. 😆 I will let Roomba loose in the mud room, this time of year, it is an aptly named space. And someone needs to clean the bathroom. Since I am home alone, there is a good chance it is me!

I think that will keep me busy enough to not get into any trouble! I hope you have a good day, and get done as much as you want to.

    1. there is always so much to do, fun and otherwise, isn’t there? I can cross off the data entry work, though, and cleaning the bathroom. Now, to go do something fun… 🙂

    1. Thank you! I have missed having Fridays free to work on lists. 🙂 This one is a big one, and I won’t get to it all, but it is good to write it down. That is half the battle. 🙂

        1. Haha! Yes, it does get put off, but eventually it has to get done. I got a Roomba for Christmas, and though it isn’t perfect, the vacuuming gets done a lot more often now!

  1. Oh how I’ve missed your lists! Can you get, or can A make you a chair or stool that would help with the proper height of the loom? Have you ever heard of Rachel Smith? She is welford purls and is on You Tube with all kinds of great videos and she is really into weaving too. She is a wealth of information. Look for wool n spinning on You Tube and you’ll find her.

    1. I will look for her. Always happy to see how others do things.

      I am not sure what would really help. I do direct warping, which means walk about 8 feet, wrap the thread around the peg, walk back, bend over and wrap or tie the thread, then thread it through the heddle, start the walk again. So I can’t really sit in a chair to do it. And I don’t know how I would raise the loom itself enough to help. But I will give it thought!

      1. I don’t know much about weaving, but Rachael’s husband made her a thing he hung on the wall where she stands upright and warps around these dowels then changes it to her floor loom. I’ll see if I can capture a picture of it to show you. Cuts her warping time in half.

        1. She uses a warping board…I haven’t tried that method yet. With a rigid heddle, I can warp directly on the loom, and it’s the only way I know how to do. I am definitely a novice weaver!

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
