walnut husks - impromtu yarn dyeing

a week or so ago when we went looking for oranges with Elena, we stopped at a park in Stilos
and picked up some old dried up walnut husks, brought them home and soaked in water, then
heated, simmered and let the pot sit for coupla days, poured the liquid off the husks, then put in a ball of light yellow yarn i had with me.  left it to sit and soak for a few hours, then heated for awhile,
cooled overnight and love the result.  hadn't done walnut dyeing in years.... this was fun!!
