Tying up loose ends

On Friday, I checked out of school for the summer. That involved boxing up a lot of things because I have no cupboard space (I share a room with a classroom teacher and rotate throughout he 3 4th grade classes throughout the day). A summer school program will run in our hall and our classroom will be a busy place., so I boxed up things I don’t want  the unknown summer school teacher to use. That’s not very friendly, but this is all my personal stuff and I can;t afford to replace it.

Today, I’m finishing up 2 knitting projects for my nephew, who will be 42 in September. The fun part is done. That’s the knitting. Today, I am weaving in the ends. It is a drop dead boring job, and there are a lot to weave in. It is the denouement of knitting and the project isn’t really done until this happens. I can’t send the projects on until I take this final step. I weave in a few ends, make myself a cup of tea. Weave in a few ends, check Facebook…..

What loose ends do you hate tying up?

    Great minds…. Sometimes those boring things just need to be done.

    What a clever analogy! I am a crocheter and I too hate weaving in the loose ends! There are even some projects that I have passed over because there were too many ends! It is so rewarding in the end though!
