Right so I did not get to the plying last night. Mainly because I don’t own a lazy kate and I only have 3 bobbins so even with a kate I’d have nothing to spin onto. Also we went out but that’s beside the point.
I wound them by hand because I was super concerned that if I used my winder I would break the yarn and ‘eff up the stripey goodness.
Tonight Matt is going to a concert with a whole slew of guys (it’s some Pittsburgh band.. the Clerks? Clarks? Clucks? Chucks? Something like that) so I have a hot date with my spinning wheel. And something tells me that spinning after happy hour is the best plan ever.
In other news…
Lauren was the closest and I totally called it:
Horned Melons are Green! Crazy, right!
And we were so excited about this development that clearly we had to send a picture message to everyone we know with the title “look what we bought!” Clearly.
By the way horned melons are not very tasty at all. The pulp has the same consistency as jelly and is quite sour and filled with seeds. Yuck. The really weird part is that it smells exactly like the cucumber melon scent from bath and body works. I think it would best be used as a garnish:
Not so perfect on white wine but I’ll bet if you slapped that sucker onto a melon/vodka “martini” you could sell it for like 18 bucks. Yuppies eat that shit up. Later on we did find a recipe for beef with horned melon sauce but I’m pretty sure no good can come of that.
Have a great weekend everyone!
