I made more marshmallows! So far I've done lemon, vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, and the goldshlager ones are setting right now. In the picture is vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry. I think they are the most beautiful things in the world <3 I'm just hoping other people think the same when I try to sell them :)

I made marshmallows. They were delish and I'm definitely going to be making more. They're very fun and easy and you can really play with the flavors you put in :) I made one vanilla batch (as you can see) and then a lemon batch to take to a bbq yesterday. And I will be making more today if I have my way!

Napkins = annoying

I got some weaving done on my very first napkin (yay) but a warp thread broke before I had finished an inch of weaving (boo). So I had to spend some time figuring out how I was supposed to fix it. I got the front end right, but I couldn't figure the back end out so I just tied a knot between the new ward and the old one. So far it seems to be doing all right :P

I have some pictures to share of an exciting cooking adventure, but that can wait until another day.

Startings of a new project

Right now I'm warping a new project, napkins. I wanted three sets of napkins that matched but were in different colors. I'm warping this by tying all of the warps together - these means 280 tiny knots twice. I have two colors on there and just need to tie the last one on and then I can start weaving! I've already broken two warps, but they're at the very end and should be easy enough to fix once I get there.

Playing Catch-up

I've been horrible about updating again! I've finished the Alpaca Tartan scarf, started and finished the Easter Scarf, and have started another project. None of my finished projects are washed, but that it easy to fix!

Here is the Easter Scarf:

The warp is 50% merino wool and 50% silk in "plum" and "daffodil" The weft is handspun rabbit fur (no animals were harmed!)

This is the start of my new project. They're a set of napkins as a gift for someone. I'm making 3 sets of 4 napkins and each set will have a different color stripe. They're going to be really cool because I'm making fringe all the way around! Super nifty!
