What could be more beautiful than 138 pounds of chocolate?
Each sack is 3 kg (6.6 pounds) of chocolate, for a total of 63 kg, or 138 lbs.
I was struggling to convey the sheer mass of the chocolate, as the bags don’t really give a sense of scale. Fritz graciously volunteered to be added to the photo:
In truth I’m only planning to use 132 pounds of it – a friend is piggybacking onto my order with the gourmet wholesaler. There are 105 pounds of dark chocolate, 20 pounds of white chocolate, and about 7 pounds of milk chocolate. (You can tell where this girl’s heart is!)
Because cool weather is in this weekend’s forecast, I’m going to seize the day and run some test flavors. Caramels this weekend, I think – and marshmallows, if time allows. Looking forward to it!
And the other beautiful thing?
Yep – finished threading last night. I got the front beam back on this morning, but my auto reed hook has disappeared, so I can’t start sleying until it’s found. I may pick up another one tonight, if I can get one at my local yarn/weaving shop, Purlescence Yarns.
