OK - Knit Witch finally hired a minion!! This is great news since I have been drowning in skeining lately. He's a really great worker and a fast learner too.
Ok, ok - so "hire" might be a strong word since it implies that I am actually paying someone. It's more like............teaching and old dog new tricks!! Haha!!!
Seriously though, I did teach Wayne to skein last week because I have been dyeing huge amounts lately. I have 2 really big orders to get out, plus I am dyeing for Stitches South and plus I am trying to get some of my bigger obligations knocked out before school really kicks into high gear. All of this equals - lots of skeining!!
Wayne has been a really great help and he hasn't even complained too much! Well, except for that one skein that got a little "tangled" and we worked on it for about an hour. I thought it might push him over the edge and make him quit his high paying job but luckily it didn't!!!
I would like to say we had a really fun weekend and did all kinds of cool stuff. But, the reality is that we spent much of it skeining! I did a lot of reading for school but we did at least manage to make it out of the house to go to the gym once or twice!
