Yesterday was a throwback to the start of the year; hanging out with good friends and eating great food. Lynn came up from “down South” (and I say it like it’s a million miles away but it’s like, an hour) and helped me to wrap soap (a day off for her, and a big help to me) and we had lunch at Chopstix, dinner at Emiliano’s, and in between, knitting at Wild Iris with ciders from Cafe Colette. Definitely a day of local tasties! Damn, I just remembered I forgot to buy that last strawberry/balsamic white chocolate at the Cafe. Poo! Well, hopefully it will still be there Thursday, or more will be there. Mmmmmmm.
Anyway. Yesterday! Fun! It was great to see Lynn and catch up on what she’s doing and working on, and to just hang for a while. She has some great knitting going on right now, one of those mitered-square blankets and it is ginormous and beautiful! What a great use for scrap pieces of yarn.
…aaaaaand, that’s about it. I have a lot to do today so I’d best wrap this up. Expect many soap updates in the shop today — I’ll be listing four sets of guest soaps on both the Etsy shop and the Wild Iris Marketplace (same soaps, available two different places). And I have glazing to do, and yarn to dye. But I don’t have to go anywhere today, so I’m going to be all squirrelly and crafty and shit. Yes, I will have pants on (so that my legs don’t get covered in dye and glaze).
