Waste Knot, Want Knot...
Most of the time I use the loop method when starting with a new thread, if possible. If I am only using one (or three) strand(s) then I weave the end of the strand(s) either under new stiches or existing stitches.
Tuesday night was the SAL at my LNS. I picked up "Who's The Boss?" framed, but didn't buy anything else (Wow! What self-control! LOL). Emily from Stitching Bloggers came to our little SAL. It was fun meeting someone from an online group (see, online people really DO exist!) and I feel that she's going to fit in with this nutty group just fine.
I am not completely sure because threads are constantly coming out from all manufacturers, save maybe Anchor and DMC, but I am pretty sure I have all, or nearly all, complete sets of DMC (from regular floss to their new specialty threads), Anchor, Weeks Dye Works, Gentle Arts Sampler Threads, Crescent Colours, Needlepaint Threads, JAR Designs, and Six Strand Sweets.
I use a spreadsheet to keep track of them.
As some of you might know, I enjoy playing computer games - mostly The Sims 2 and "tycoon" type games such as Rollercoaster Tycoon, Zoo Tycoon, etc.. For the past couple of days, however, I have gotten really involved in a silly simple game called "Carrie the Caregiver" from Shockwave.com which surprisingly is currently #1 in downloaded games. I downloaded it because I as bored one Saturday morning waiting for the people in my life to get ready to go out - and ended up addicted to it. I guess it's true that babies are irresistible. :)
