Specs: App 12 oz Polypay roving, using three colors of Gaywool dyes in three different dyepots.
While the roving was cooking, I finished a shawl on the tri-loom.
Specs: 7 ft tri-loom, yarn is handspun one ply white alpaca (Laser Fine, barn name Peach Boy), one ply natural 50% merino/50% silk, then dyed with Gaywool dyes.
It still needs to be fulled.
Then we baked peanut butter cookies.
I did the mixing, and Mom helped with the rolling into a ball and smooshing with a fork. As you can see, she is really good at the smooshing.
The recipe is from a cookbook called Favorite Recipes of Home Economics Teachers. I inherited it from my aunt Mary Anne, Mom's sister. Some people want the crystal vase, or the jewelry when it comes to inheritence. Nope, I want the cookbooks. This one was published in 1963, which makes it 3 years older than me. I love reading the handwritten notes that are made next to her favorites, or seeing the dogeared pages, and wondering what recipe on that page had interested her.
Actually using the cookbook can be interesting. Some of the ingredients require a little research. For example, oleo? That one took a while.
