After school today the grandgals and I trekked down to the lower pasture and gathered walnuts. The wagon made it easy for the girls to bring them back up to the house. Ahem, I supervised. ;) There's more...tomorrow, maybe. I need enough hulls for a natural dye bath. I have some baskets that I made a few years back that need dying really bad. ;) There's a Williamsburg basket, a 'tater basket & a couple more. I'll show them to you another time. One wagon load of walnuts is a good start...
Nothing like a hammer for crackin' a tough nut. Enjoying the fruits of one's labor.I bet you thought I couldn't knit with a cut finger - I did just a bit. This scarf was mostly done last winter, so I merely bound it off this morning. (How? See, you just hold up the wounded digit and try to remember to leave it up or much pain follows. ;)

Be cool, Y'all. It's hard not to be cool with these wonderful temperatures, eh?
