If at first you don’t succeed, dry, dry again

USPS this morning said Thursday, Royal Mail said the local office has it, and dang. Busted, I guess? They put it on the truck after all.

The mail came at 5:30: the red for the barn! There is thankfully no pink tinge this time–that’s just a pigment of the camera’s imagination.

I had ordered a large cone. They give you a discount if you click the box for not making them wind it off into smaller ones, and yet, I had said I was knitting it doubled–and they wound it off onto two because they could, so that I could knit it straight up as is if I wanted. It was a nice little surprise. Thank you, Colourmart.

(I wanted it wound off and scoured first, though. It preshrinks it a little and it makes it feel so much softer to work with.)

Two plus hours and a fast dinner later, I had all 2600+ meters hanked up, the mill oils washed out in hot water, and they’re hanging up to dry.

I can’t wait.

The colour is stunning – and what a nice touch, them winding it on to two cones for you!

Perfect color!

I was thinking of you today. As I was washing out the chocolate machine. Do you ever think about just starting the next batch and not washing out the old? I mean, you WOULDN’T, but do you daydream about? Like I do?

The never ending chocolate – without the never ending cleaning up part? No? Sigh. Kinda of thought it was just me.
