Scalpay Linen Dog does Winter Sports

A perfect picture from across the Atlantic to update us on the progress of the Scalpay Linen Hebridean Tweed dog who moved to the states last year.
He has been lucky enough to go skiing at Cranmore Mt in Conway, New Hampshire which is one of the oldest ski resorts in the US.  He's obviously having a good time - many thanks to Sandy for keeping us abreast of his adventures.

All is quiet at Scalpay Linen just now - lots of spinning of mohair, the gift of a Shetland ram from Sallie the tapestry weaver in Great Bernera, another gift of some wonderful Zwartbles fleeces from our new neighbour here at Outend, Scalpay.  Sewing classes at Tweeds with Style, Drinnishader, Isle of Harris re-started after the Christmas break last evening.  The festivities continued with much indulgence in Fionas "Smooth Sensations" excellent truffles and, it must be said, no sewing was done at this class!  But we will be back to work again next Tuesday.
The weather has turned wet and mild which is a change from all the snow and ice, but I believe the Isle of Lewis are still in an arctic armlock.

Ha ha ha! That's very funny. I hope the Scalpay Linen Dog is enjoying him/herself.
