A merry Christmas everybody!


I'll try and post something the next few days but the car broke down, postmen are on strike so I didn't get any packages for a week, my bike's gotta flat and I'm on the graveyard shift the next seven days. 
We're having ten inches of snow by the way...
Anyway, have some lovely holidays and happy Hunting in the New Year!

Baby, it's cold outside!

Dutch engineer boots, sheepskin liner

Knitting these checked scarfs was War Veterans rehabilitation therapy in Australia, this is a copy.

Classic American overcoat in a cotton drill outer, sheepskin liner version. These usually come in gabardine.

Had this one for years, some serious wear'n'tear. Beats my Canadienne and British Army Duffel as the best cold weather coat.

Heavy flannel pullover shirt, love these caramel buttons.
