…is how long it took me to kitchener the Clementine Shawlette halves together. I can be so precise, not because I timed myself (i may be a geek but i’m not that bad) but because I started kitchenering when Pirates of the Carribbean – Dead Man’s Chest began and I checked the timer on the DVD when I finished.
All I have to do now is block it. Great i thought I’ll soak it today, until I remembered I had lent my Eucalan to my mum and not got it back yet. In the UK Eucalan, along with other no-rinse woolwashes, are a rarity. I was searching the internet for a UK stockist of Eucalan, my present bottle was a gift, only to find this. I would be interested in hearing from any UK people who have used it. It looks similar to Eucualan but much cheaper (well, same price but bigger bottle) and as there is a Lakeland in Cambridge it is easily accessible. As I have a couple of weeks until the wedding for which the shawl is needed I will postpone blocking until I can get to the city and buy some.
I plan on having a dyeing day tomorrow, so expect a shop update soon. I need to get the woolwash to soak the dyed yarn in to, so the update won’t be until next week.
