OHMIGOD

I just nearly burnt the house down!

I forgot to turn off the slow cooker last night. I was overdyeing the 50:50 silk wool that I wasn't totally happy with.... I had put it in the laundry cos Nathan hates the smell of hot silk. Of course I forgot all about it cos it was in the laundry.

I have no idea how long it will take to get rid of the smell of burnt hair. The house reeks of 80 grams of carbonised hair. I can't have a shower until the smell dies down cos my hair just absorbs stenches (like it has this morning - it stinks a LOT!).

So, dreamcatcher, it will be even longer before your birthday present arrives...

(Did I cry? What do you think if you had just carbonised a friend's well overdue birthday present and nearly burned the house down?)

  2. Whoops! Sounds like the sort of thing I would do, but so far haven't...

    My guess about the triangle is the infamous Clap, of which I am knitting a narrower version than the original - to make a scarf rather than a wrap.

  3. Oh crumbs, the main thing is the house is in one piece!
