This is what $50 of yarn/fiber looks like, by the way.
It's my last Senate meeting of the semester. Because I'm sentimental and my fellow senators are generally pretty fantastic people, I'm making hot cocoa from scratch for everyone. It's not yarn, but I'm gonna share the recipe/instructions complete with stupid step-by step pictures.
Step One: Get a step stool because all of your baking ingredients are on the top shelf. This is because you're super smart and put them all up there.
Dump about a cup of cocoa and a cup of water into a good sized pot. Dump in three cups--wait, recipe. Three cups? Yeah. Three cups of sugar. Realize you need more water so precariously add more water and see if it looks good. Should look like thick swampy brown mud water.
Slowly add 14 cups of milk.
Measure out 7 cups of milk while hoping that nobody's vegan and realize that it looks like 7 cups is about a third a gallon of milk. You might be adding the whole gallon.
At this point it looks hot chocolatey.
Who knows, you're super clumsy.
Add another two cups because you're impatient.
Decide you're really impatient and get another pot to start heating up the rest of the milk.
Decide not to because if you did that, you'd have to clean another pot.
Realize you've had the temperature at medium this whole time and turn it on full blast because screw this "on medium heat" bullshit. You want to be at Senate on time.
Realize you may have put too much milk in this pot to be able to comfortably dump the hot cocoa into your Bubba keg.
Also realize that you are wearing a dress.
You grab an apron.
You also realize that an apron isn't going to protect you if you dump an entire pot of hot cocoa on yourself but you try to keep your false sense of security.
You think you're done but you forgot to add the vanilla and almond extracts.
Crack open that Bubba keg and dump in some vanilla and almond extract, hoping no one has a nut allergy.
Now you're done.
Taste test your cocoa and remain content with it. Now pack it up and drag it to Senate.
