Here's one of the things I do when I'm not making Things What Smell - I knit. I just recently started to feel like I'm actually getting good at knitting, after two years of puttering away at it. My criteria for choosing a project is that the yarn and the needles have to feel and look good in my hands, because I want to do this for the tactile sensation and the relaxation it brings.
I say this here, because you cannot hear me curse at myself when I drop yet another stitch.
Anyway, back to this scarf. I'm working with Patons SWS in the geranium colourway, and I adore it. I'm also using some handmade needles that I bought from one of my favourite vendors on the science-fiction-convention circuit.
Working with this yarn is a joy!
I made some new bath salts tonight - cafe amaretto salts made with real coffee and delightful almond. It'll WAKE YOU UP.
It also made my kitchen smell so good that I could hardly stand it. *drool*
And for those who wonder where I get the names for my products - I usually take them from songs that I like. This one? Blondie all the way. Every time I see the jars sitting there, I start singing Atomic! It's been stuck in my head all night.
The two newest additions to the ThreeRavens Bath and Body line.
Adrenaline Bath Salts are super-charged with Organic lemongrass and orange oils, and will really wake you up!
The Herb and Apple Vinegar is something I've wanted to sell for a while, since I make it all the time for my own use anyway. Doesn't smell great, but oooh will it clarify your hair and skin. I love it for getting styling products or conditioner buildup out of my hair. I made it full-strength, so you actually get twice the amount of product once you dilute it by half.
I'm excited by all the new things I have brewing here!
