New project

Hm, haven't been here for ages. Been busy with lots of other knitting and sheepy/wool related things though, it never stops!
I bought this lovely pattern off e-bay the other day, and am looking forward to giving it a go. I have something suitable in teh stash, so just need to get it cast on and go. Nice............. will do them both probably lol
Hm. blogger won't let me post it......... will try again later.

Major up heavels in home and domestic life mean I've not been around quite so much, but am now back online more , I hope, to get things up to date. I finished teh Zimmerman shawl, it was a lovely knit to work on, and I dyed it with nettles when It was finished. I will get a pic up here when I can. I have a stack of historical bits and peices I want to get done, a head full of ideas and am challenged to find time to even start them at the moment, but I will.
MOving up to North Yorkshire has put another slant on my knitting - Dales knitting, Swaledale sheep, knitters in and around Richmond; I want to investigate the 'Swaledale glove' a bit more; to me it bears a resemblance to a Sanquhar glove, so excited about doing a bit more research on that.
