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!

|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.|
