I was wandering Coles Supermarket this morning looking for a showercap (sometimes they have them but mostly they don't) and my eye lit upon Caffeine Shampoo and Conditioner "To stimulate the roots of your hair". I think that beats 'Posturepedic" mattresses. Since Orthopaedic means "straight child" I assume that posturepedic means 'posture American child'. I need to come out of the closet at this point and admit that I am a member of a Pedants Group on http://librarything.com but posturepedic makes as much sense as buying a caffeine shampoo. Why not simply use a coffee rinse of you are gullible.
I moved into this apartment on 2nd August 2011 so I have now been here for three years, although it still feels new and strange. I lived in the last place for almost 50 years and although I did a major renovation it was always home. I haven't been back since the day I moved out; I don't want to see or know what has been done with it by subsequent buyers.
I am spinning the 'Minestrone' colourway from Kathy's Fibres and will make a quick-knit scarf as I will only have one skein and the spinning is very uneven while I teach myself to spin rolags on E.Roberta. I have had to increase the twist to prevent it from breaking and for some reason it is not winding on as consistently as it does when I spin tops with a short forward draw. With the rolags I am having to take advantage of the Irish tension and do a sort of modified long backdraw to keep firm tension on the singles.
I am wearing the BB in the evenings and it is lovely and warm and comfortable but I am not sure just how durable it will be. I'll know by the end of winter.
Here is the BB, modeled by D2. Click on the pictures to enlarge them.
