infryq: Kitchen scene at dawn, post-processed to appear as if painted (Default)
Yesterday I spun another 50g of sweater singles, but it didn't fill the
bobbin so I think the rest of this batch of washed fleece will finish it
off. I'll have to wash more this weekend (a good idea anyway, I want to
clear the raw stash away before our fiber festival trip in May).

Bakery Square meeting went well -- one of our grad students presented some
work in progress and while she wasn't pleased with what she saw as a lack
of clear narrative I thought it was actually a great representation of what
research is really like.

Went to the co-op on the way home to stock up on polenta and almond butter,
and got a wee tub of amaranth grain on a whim. Toasted about a tablespoon
in a dry skillet and added it to the rice+stuff; worked great. I have a
vague memory of plain amaranth cooking up remarkably like floam (remember
floam?) so I think this method -- using it to thicken a stew -- is superior.
