I am officially ready for the next challenge to start. This place needs redecorating.

Also, since we're winding down, I'm gonna call this challenge a success. It's an imperfect work in progress, but I got vaccinated and a number of stuck wheels got unstuck.

 

I still have not had cake, though. Or my hardboiled egg.

I might have an omelet. Maybe I can count that?

A whole chicken can last for days if you don't mind eating pulled chicken cold out of the storage container from the fridge, and it's easy to cook them in the instapot too. Or you can stick a ham in the oven for a few hours, then carve pieces off and have food for days. Ham freezes well too.

 

Another easy to cook option is pork butt or shoulder. Long slow braising is the perfect way to cook it, which is great for someone who is iffy on timing. It can be eaten as roast pork, pulled pork, slices for sandwiches, or chopped and put in other dishes to add protein. And it goes on sale really cheap. :D

It's an ashford traditional wheel and I don't feel super confident that I'm using it correctly, lol. I'll have to look up all the parts and check I've got everything set up right. What's your wheel?

 

Mine is a Country Craftsman double drive with the optional Scotch tension added.

(not my wheel or my house, but it looks just like this)

 

I learned on an Ashford traditional, so I would be happy to help if you have questions.

Oooh, it looks great!

 

All I know is that I had to fiddle a lot with the drive band (a bit of string that came with the wheel) in order to make it the right tightness to get the wheel to turn without the mother of all lifting up. The mother of all flops about a bit, and I sometime have to rearrange it so the bobbin lines up with the wheel, so I wonder if I assembled it correctly.


So how do you find the double drive in comparison to single/scotch tension? Is it better?

I’ll accept it. I need to make eggs tomorrow as well to get one win this challenge. 😄 I did pick some lilacs though.

I just wanted to quote this out of context because it amuses me.
 

Seriously whenever you talk about yarn things it’s like you’re speaking a different language. 😄

To be fair, someone reading this thread is going, "What the hell is the deal with eggs and lilacs, and what is a feegle?"

Last time I did that, I cut the pork shoulder in half, put one half in each slow cooker, and cooked them for 14 hours total. Shredded with forks, froze in  4-person amounts, and easy low effort food was had by all :)

“I've always believed that failure is non-existent. What is failure? You go to the end of the season, then you lose the Super Bowl. Is that failing? To most people, maybe. But when you're picking apart why you failed, and now you're learning from that, then is that really failing? I don't think so." - Kobe Bryant, 1978-2020. Rest in peace, great warrior.

To add to the challenge wins, it looks like over the past 1-1.5 weeks of better sleep, better hydration, and better macros, my lockdown weight trend is heading back down. They've all been imperfect, but improvements over the average.

Noice! Especially the sleep.
