I thought weekends were for lying around and doing nothing? Sunday's in particular lately seem to be the day I fill up. Once again I barely left the kitchen.
At least one of the loaves is for the Guy's sandwiches this week. I was told this recipe made a wonderful sandwich bread. We shall see. I'll let you know how it goes. It's called Anadama bread. I wasn't up for making the requested rye bread. I mixed one rye flower in to give it a bit of that flavor so we shall see.
When I had mentioned before about the new Hansen Crafts E-spinner I purchased with a Wool-Lee winder, someone asked me about the Wool-Lee winder. I tried to explain what it was for but as they are a non spinner I think they continued to see it as a huge waste of money. I mean, you can buy yarn at Wal-Mart, right? Actually, I heard you can't anymore, though I would never heave gone there for my yarn anyway.
So, I figured a picture would be a better descriptor of what the Wool-Lee winder does.
When one is plying, or taking more than one yarn and twisting it together to make a larger and more durable strand of yarn, the build up of these ridges is even faster and should you not pay attention, the collapse happens even faster.
Anyway, I'm off to fix myself some turkey leftovers for dinner. Hope you all have a more restful holiday weekend than I did for myself.
