One of those days....
The kind of day when you spend ages creating a post - uploading pictures, finding links, writing out recipes/patterns, that kind of thing.
Then Blogger eats the post
It's the kind of day when you go to make some toast - and you burn it
The sort of day that finds you heading to the bread bin - and realising that you just burnt the last of the bread....
Oh well, back to the drawing board. The Last Post has gone - goodbye, farewell, I may try to resurrect your glory on the future.
Looks pretty gross, right? And it was actually, MR India said
he would divorce me if I ever did it again would I please not boil up coffee grounds when he is in the house.
So, what I have actually been doing is trying to dye yarn with coffess grounds. Apparently coffee contains a natural mordant, so 'all' you need to do is boil the saved up grounds for a couple of hours, strain the liquid off and then boil your fibre in it for an hour or so.
The big challenge now will be to rinse the coffee out without felting the fibre. To this end, I am letting the fibre cool completely so it won't get the kind of nasty shock that makes all of the scales cling to each other in fright.
Another problem is going to be those little coffee grounds that escaped when I was filtering. But then, these little hiccups are 'part of the irregularities that add to the charm of a handcrafted product.' Right?
