How to finish your singles yarn....

 
First you gently soak if for a few brief moments of time in some lavender-scented wash. Then you lovingly envelope the skein in the finest Egyptian cotton cloth, soaking up the excess water with the tenderest of caresses. Then, having paused for a few heartbeats of time, you grab it by the throat, thwack it soundly against the bath until it begs for mercy, before stretching it on the rack.

I wish I had read this before I hung my singles, I don't think I whacked them hard enough!

My last post was weird, being that you ARE India and all.
I thought for a mo I was on Tigerlilith, which would kind of make sense in my own mind because Tigerlilith's ma brought you the roving and I thought she gave some to her daughter too.
Goodnight, I think I need a LONG sleep. xxx K
