I’m pleased–I finished pouring the chocolate molds in just three batches, and while I partially botched the first batch, it doesn’t seem to be too bad – all three batches are releasing cleanly from the molds and appear to be well-tempered. I do believe I’m getting the hang of this! Fifteen years of making chocolates every Thanksgiving, and I learn something new every year. Last year I had a terrible time with the molds and had to throw away (= feed to my coworkers) nearly half the molded chocolates. This year I think I should be able to keep most of them.
I am not, however, pleased with how my SE Asia blog is turning out. I’ll have to think about the formatting more…I may wind up just posting it as a set of static webpages in Dreamweaver. Does anyone know of a blogging system/software that will let me set up a blog in chronological (rather than reverse chronological) order?
If not, I think I’ll set it up as a set of static webpages over Christmas, when I’ll be at my parents’ and hence have plenty of time.
I’ve wound off most of the skeins to be dyed for my next project, and may throw a plastic tablecloth across the chocolate-tempering area so I can do some dyeing without worrying about splashes. I’m almost done weaving off my fourth project, so I need to get started on the new one…
