I had to run some errands today and they took longer than I expected so I didn’t get as much done on the loom as I wanted. But it’s coming along. I am ready to tie onto the front! 🙂 It really only took about…a hour?? to get the warp on the loom after I wound it off. I had to re-thread 30 ends from the previous warp so I could tie on again and while that was annoying, it still didn’t take as long as having to re-dress the entire loom for JUST 90 ends! I am really excited to see how this turns out! I hope it comes out well.
I have also been making some progress on the knitting front. I started another square! I still have no idea how I’m going to come up with 25 squares, but who knows…Maybe I have more yarn than I thought I did.
I watched an episode and a half of Hoarders. Oh my…It makes me want to get rid of everything I own and live a completely minimalistic lifestyle. It also makes me realize how often I justify keeping things that I don’t need to keep. Eeek! I don’t like seeing some of those same thought processes in my own mind.
They all seem to have an addiction to buying things…Retail therapy and all that. I must say, I’ve definitely been there. After my parents got divorced I used shopping as a coping mechanism. I was able to stop myself though!! (Thanks to encouragement from Ben and grace from the Lord!) Anyway, my point is I can understand how it can end up taking over your life like that. I got to the point where I would just buy stuff (clothes) without even thinking about it really. Most of them really didn’t get worn that often because they didn’t fit well because I didn’t care how they fit. I just wanted to buy them….Like I said…Eeek! haha.
I am definitely fascinated by the show! I’m looking forward to getting to watch more.
PS: I think I hoard yarn…I’m always thinking about it…and wanting to buy it…
