This morning saw a light dusting of snow on top of the Clisham - the highest mountain in the Western Isles. I would have taken a picture but my camera is packed away in my suitcase waiting for an early start tomorrow morning. Scalpay Linen is going on tour again to the Land of the Rising Sun - this time hopefully to include some travel south and more visits to textile orientated venues.
Apparently knitwear is a la mode this winter in Tokyo, so I have packed away some handspun and some needles (no, not in the hand luggage, though I am hoping to get away with a discreet crochet hook to while away the long haul). Only fly in the ointment is that our friends from across the channel seem to be engaged in some sort of industrial action and the status of the airport in Paris is a bit iffy at the moment.
So I am hoping there will be textiley photos in the blog over the next couple of weeks. Blogging has taken a back seat just lately because things have been so hectic in the loomshed, but now its time to relax and do something different.......
