I think my eyes have finally uncrossed after looking at our absolutely terrible, totally non-intuitive wireless billing software. Holy CRAP. Nothing like having the manual open in front of the page, following the steps laid out to the letter, and STILL not having it work right.
Today's BPAL is Desire: The overwhelming agony of passion crystallized into a singularly dark and magnetic blend: bittersweet neroli, black patchouli and black musk, gilded by apple, bergamot, blood red rose, teak, and vanilla.
As it's dried and mellowed, I absolutely love it, but I'm not gonna lie. When I put it on first thing this morning, all I could smell was some combination of panang curry and tom kha gai! There is no coconut and no peanut in this blend. People report a strong sweet citrus, like lemon drops, but all I got was Thai food. It cracked me up.
I used my lace flyer for the first time last night. WOW. How have I never used that before? I am getting SO MUCH YARDAGE out of my fiber! It's amazing. I bought a pack of top at Sheep and Wool that has some amazing colour changes, so I am spinning it from light to dark, and then I think I want to knit a shawl that highlights the changes. In the meantime, I have like, 3.5 more ounces to spin.
And I seriously, seriously want this: a cup-holder for my spinning wheel!
