I talked to the bear this AM and he had a good night's sleep for the first time in ages and was hoping to get a shower. This is all good and he told me to get some more sleep so I will. I can be The Woman of Steel for only so long and then I need to recharge my batteries.

Some of the not intending is because
I intend weaving them. Before I took off on Thurs I spent 4 hours on Weds night production weaving to get as far enough along on my weaving to get to the twill at the other end of the item on the loom. This should have been easy but no eyes made it hard because one eye does not leave you with any depth perception.

Wow that's quite a list. Let us know how the knitting with wire works out, I'm very curious about that one.
