What I made

This is about 155 yards of mohair/alpaca plied with silk (in bigger photo you can see the little silk nubs). This yarn would have been a dud if not for the silk. It was spun weirdly (still can't figure out what I did wrong) but I'm happy with the result. Not as fussy as usual.

6 weeks later

It's so freakin hot here (110 today and no end of 100's in forecast) I bought a portable swamp cooler for my office. It works pretty well, sort of shoots damp air at me, but it's enough to help a bit. Yes, I have AC in the house but the office just never seems to cool off and the computers don't help things. Anyhow, it's a sad day today. I just now finished off the last of my Arizona Diet Blueberry Green Tea, which is no longer available here. Anywhere. (If I am wrong, please let me know!) It seems that Tucson is a favorite city for market testing, and that means the things I love are destined to be discontinued. Wishbone has a new salad dressing, a berry vinaigrette, which is wonderful stuff, good on salad and salmon and chicken. I bought a case of it. Of course, because I bought a case, it won't be discontinued. I ain't taking any chances.

Nice to see y'all - I'll try not to stay away too long...
