5,000 ends

The one-piece baby kimono from this book, which has been on my needles for coming on three weeks, is full of blue stripey goodness; and. about. five. thousand. ends. to weave in. A more accurate number might be 55 so far (still have the second shoulder/front to finish), but to a person who hates ends, 55 does, in fact, equal 5,000.

This would be a good time for an end-weaving fairy to enter my life. Come on. There is a tooth fairy, why can't there be a end-weaving fairy? I mean, how productive is a tooth fairy anyway? All he/she does is fly in and grab a tooth that has already fallen out. The freed tooth is usually quick to find, the fairy drops some change and then flies out. Big deal. It's not like the damn fairy had to work much. I say we need dish washing fairies, laundry fairies, lawn mowing fairies and an end-weaving fairy.
