I haven't been writing here for a while, I've been very busy lately plus I have tons of soap to use and give away and no more place to store it, so I decided to give up soapmaking for a while, at least until I can make room for some new experiments!
In the meanwhile, being kinda broke and unable to keep my hands still, I took up a new, amazing obsession: knitting! I have just started, so I really suck at it right now, but I'm loving it so much, and it's a much cheaper freetime activity than soapmaking (which I love as well, of course!)... so anyway, I haven't made anything worth showing you so far, at the moment I'm practising with lace patterns and double pointed needles, but as soon as I make something at least decent, be sure you're the first to know ;)
In the meanwhile, I suggest you try knitting if you haven't yet, because it takes you back some 50-60 years, and it's so relaxing and mechanical that it feels to me much like what Buddhist monks could feel while painting mandalas.
