In an attempt to clear some things off my to-do list, I decided to go use the drill press and drill holes in some things. I hadn't used it in months. Maybe even last year. I was going along, but the drill bit kept sliding up the drill-bit-holder-thingy (yeah, I know - can you hear trouble coming?). I'm wondering if I'm missing another part. You know, the one that keeps the bit tight and straight? Who knows. Anyway, the drill bit is now stuck in the holder thing.

And I broke the drill bit.

And I can't get the drill-bit-holder-thingy to open up.


I'm so freakin' happy and cannot wait to tell Matt. Of course, I could have waited to ask him how to use it again, but he probably would have wound up getting testy even before he finished showing me what to do.

I'm so p.o.'d. No neighbors around to help now. So, I'm having a beer, and being all testy myself.

Anyway here is what's on the loom now:

It's tied on to the warp from the previous scarves. I'm making three, almost the same. There is a slight variation to the diamond pattern in the second one. I should have enough red warp to finish the third. It's such a rich, ruby red. There will be one for each of the stores and one for Etsy.

And I will be taking a trip up to Webs next week for more yarn because I need more tencel for these projects. Really I do! I know I never need an excuse to go to Webs (unless I am flat broke) but this time it's real!


  1. I understand 'drill-bit-holder-thingy' - I know exactly what your talking about and I know how it is when guys get testy over power tools. -Just because I don't know the language doesn't mean I can't used it - it's not rocket science!

    hopefully it's an easy fix and he'll get over it quickly - life is too short to stay testy for long!

  2. Thanks, Heather! I'm glad someone understands! LOL!
