Finally!! After probably 20 hours of effort, I completed my dishcloth. Can’t say that there will be a lot more knitting in my future. Over 10” in both dimensions.

Made 2 cups of uncooked rice. Close to 4 cups of cooked rice in a rice cooker.
Reused a little over 3 gallons of shower water to water some mint. It helped that the shower was in a common house and was used regularly at the SKIP event. The water gathered rather quickly.
Made a salve using arnica flower oil and beeswax.

6oz finished oil (volume) to 1.3oz beeswax (weight).

Melted in a water bath.

Made a ginger syrup with equal parts sugar and (30min boil) ginger decoction that I had previously made here:
Pierre's Ginger Decoction

After adding the sugar and bringing up to temperature, I let the mixture boil together for 5 minutes. Then poured into a container after cooling and labeled.
