Yesterday I went out for a long walk with my snowshoes looking for crooked wood for spoons. I did find a few among the reaching for the sky trees in the forest around where I live. I sometimes find the crooked ones near the ground or on the side of a hill. I was hoping to find a really nice crook I spotted last year but with all the snow this year I think it's buried and I couldn't find it. I did find a few chaga mushrooms which have healing properties. So a brought one of them home too. I'll be carving the crooks over the next few days and sending the best three over to a spoon carving contest in Sweden.
