Time is always to short if you have good company.
We talked a lot and among things also about soapmaking and I promised to make a shampoo bar for her.
What the heck was I thinking?
I wanted to do this one hot process so I gathered my stuff and got going.
The Trace stadium looked good to me.
I peeked at 15 minutes and I had my crockpot on hot!
I could already see that it was browning on the sides, but I thought that was part of the process.
Here you can see that is what was kind of burning.
So the crockpot went on low.
After an hour I put my mixture in the moods, but look at how it looks!
It looks like scrambled eggs!
So I have taken a shower with the bar and I have to say......
It worked. My hair is stil wet so I don't know what it looks like when it has dried up, but it feels nice.
The latter was amazing. We have very soft water and the you get more lather too.
I will keep you updated and I might send her the shampoo bars after all.
Yesterday and today I have knit knight and as you all know I cannot knit because of my tennis elbows.
I can do Inkle Loom weaving though so yesterday I started with a double weave project and it looked better on the back then on the front.
Have to work on that then!
Here are the pictures. The pattern is from Laverne Waddington.

|and this is the back. You see the pattern better on the backside.|
