I finally got around to plying the singles I spun from the leftover Thrummed Mittens fiber. It was not a fun spin. The fiber was hard to draft and very clumpy but this chain plied yarn should work just fine in the Garter Squish.
As for the fails.....the first one is a big one. See that metal transition track between the two floors? It runs the length of the kitchen/dining/living area. Yesterday on a high from finishing the foyer we decided to tackle the last remaining kitchen job which was to put down the T molding that covers the track. Did it fit? NO. Nothing we did let the top piece pop into place like it's supposed to. The bottom prongs just broke off every time. The transition piece and the track came together as a set and the set was from our flooring collection... so now what? We don't have a clue other than rip up all the track and start over with something else. I see a trip to Lowe's in our future.
Fail Number Two was not as costly-just really stupid. Since I didn't have a working oven at Christmas I never made any gingerbread this year so I thought I would play with my new little oven and make some. I got every thing prepped and mixed and when I went to add the flour......I didn't have any. The can was empty. All I had was some rather elderly whole wheat flour so I threw it in and hoped for the best. Yuck. It all turned out very mealy. The cookies were not crisp. The cake was like lead. THEN as I was cleaning up and putting everything away I found...........
....yeah. A brand new bag of flour that had come in MY VERY LAST GROCERY ORDER just last week. Ooof. How dumb was that?
