02:48 pm - warning picspam ahead. Scotland and knitting
was nice, in that I got to
  • do a little shopping,


    in
    Gretna





    and
    Moffat

    see - Moffat=sheep but no shops selling wool.



    but lots selling to the tourists and we had a lovely lunch at The Balmoral Hotel.



    and
    Dumfries





  • a little fresh air and exercise along the

    Solway Firth,





  • helped MWNN track down the final resting place of

    some ancestors,





  • and to meet some 'live' distant cousins from the

    Elliot clan,



  • enjoyed a lot of rest and relaxation in a fabulous farm cottage where I finally finished the first tea cosy I’ve made in over 40 years.


    It'sa
    BIG tea cosy
    Big Cosie


    It fits the big 6-mug teapot that always comes out at luchtimes Chez Hesadevil and is especially needed now that I've passed the cold from hell to MWNN. I am pleased with how this turned out and how easy it was to knit. I used a strand of each colour together throughout. I even remembered the burgundy colour perfectly when buying ribbon in Annan, having forgotten to take some yarn with me to the shop.
