Another thing we accomplished this week, one that both of us are quite excited about, is Dustin’s tying station. Knowing that tying would be an activity he would engage in regularly, we wanted to have a permanent place just for tying. We chose the other wall in the office as our fishing space. His drafting table is now put to use as a tying table, and it fits the bill well. The owner of this property disposed of a small wooden shelf that we are going to recycle, paint, install dowel rods for holding thread, and hang on the wall above the table. That should be a fun project with useful results, at least we hope.
Since we put up the station, Dustin has tied a fair amount (also a product of being unemployed) and seems to like his new area. Also, he’s found a thread that works like a charm in his Ekich bobbin, UTC. I’m not sure he’ll buy uni-thread again.
Now, if we could do something about this wind…
