Efterårsferiens bytte /The loot of the autumn holiday

Jeg har endelig fået en garnvinde, juhu! og den kostede kun 100 kr. Nu mangler jeg bare en garnhaspe (en garnvinde er til at vinde fed af garn af (til nøgler) med, en garnhaspe er til at vinde garn op i fed med):
Og hvad er så dette? Kompost? Affald?:
Nej, det er 30 liter valnødde-yderskaller som jeg skal bruge til at farve brun med. Adr, de er temmelig ulækre lige nu, men det skal være skidt, før det kan blive godt. Jeg glæder mig meget til farveprocessen og til det endelige resultat:
Og jeg har været på Lejre Forsøgscenter sammen med Frimændene. Sindsygt godt vejr for dette tidspunkt af året...
In English:
Picture1: I have finally got a yarn winder, and it was only 100 Dkr. (since the only truly global thing seems to be fast food(...), I will equal the amount with that: It is as much as two fast food menus).
Picure2: And what is this: Compost? Waste?
Picture3: No it is 30 liters of walnut hulls/husks that I'm going to use for dyeing brown. Eek they are disguisting right now, but "it has to get worse, before it can become better" (= All good things come to those who wait. Amazing how many silly proverbs and fixed phrases that exists...but in this particularly instance, the best thing to do is actually to wait passively and patiently, since the husks/hulls has to ferment for at least a few weeks). I'm looking forward very much to the dyeprocess and to the results.
I've been to Lejre Experimental Centre. Lots of pictures, lots to tell, but none now (teasing). There is so much, that I'll spread it across a few posts.
