Island in rear view
All of a sudden, I only have a few more rows 'til the Cash Iroha/main part of the second Williamsro sleeve is finished! Sleeve Island will be in my rear view by week's end. I'll still have the Blossom part, but it's all stockinette and only a few inches. I'll be casting on the body ASAP -- I'd like to have that baby finished by this time next month. Woo!
I filled a bag with walnuts last night. They were plentiful, you see, but not always desirable. The husk is often cracked when I find them on the ground and sometimes the crack doesn't seem too bad, so I pick 'em up. Well, here's what I found in the middle of a cracked and somewhat squishy walnut last night. Tiny little worms -- eeewwwww! Made me want to put on gloves. There will be ongoing inspections of the harvest. I'm sure my cute assistant, Scamp, will continue to help. He's become so lovey-dovey the last few months.
I didn't know that Ai wasn't finished with her hood when I snapped the picture a few weeks ago. A few days later, she was painting words -- looks pretty darn cool, if I may say so, and even if her car doesn't have a butt. I'm glad y'all had a good chuckle over that. And thanks for the nice comments on the shawl, too!
