I was overwhelmed yesterday with the response I got from the giveaway. I wondered if anyone was still out there listening and apparently there is.
It was nice to meet some new friends too. They find it hard to believe that I just give it away but I do. The shipping cost is factored into my hobby budget which has been hard to deplete lately since I haven't been out of the house for over a year.
I have two new fragrances waiting to be tried out and no place to cure it until you all kindly take the last batches off my hands.
...and my soap table from looking like this ...and it's not too late to sign up!

Water, lye, olive oil, coconut oil, palm oil, rice bran oil, canola oil, castor oil, apricot kernel oil, sesame oil, grapeseed oil, safflower oil, avocado oil, hemp oil, coco butter, shea butter, palm kernel flakes, goat's milk powder, yogurt powder, kaolin clay and sodium lactate. For those that have color and fragrance: mica and fragrance oils.
So now...let's meet the soap:
On the right I have some lightly scented Pine soap. I've got a thing about pine soap right now. It reminds me of summer camp even though I've never been to summer camp. I love it.
On the right I have the old favorite Milk and Honey. I added real honey to this one.
On the right I have the crazy botched batch which is incredibly conditioning and smells a bit medicinal. It's all natural with tiny bit of herbal essential oils and colored clay. It's nothing to look at but I loved it. It's a true luxury bar that should be used right away. All those free oils won't last as long as a regular bar.
You know what to do.
Message me your address and three favorites on either Ravelry or at firstname.lastname@example.org and sometime this summer I'll see that you get two of them-no strings attached.

I started with the ugly botched batch and I have to say I like it. Not putting enough lye in the batter wasn't the big disaster I had expected. I'm happy now I didn't toss it all.

My Tour project is almost ready to be plied. I only meant to sample the fiber but the wheel has been calling my name. It is so relaxing it's like meditation. It's a great way to start the day.
