Yorkshire Champions!

Harrogate Grammar School U 18's are the winners of the Duke of Wellington Shield and Yorkshire Schools U18 Champions of Rugby! Mr J the younger played at outside centre & one of 6 playing 'a year young' i.e. Lower Sixth. This is the second time his age group have been champions, the first time was in 2005 when they were year 10. A great day. All of the boys played out of their skins. Son & heir is having a bit of a nap but I think there is some celebration planned for later!

They played Roundhay High School from Leeds, having beaten Prince Henry's Grammar School from Otley in the semi-final.

On a fibre footnote my copy of Yorkshire Lace arrived this morning. Its awesome and a little bit daunting. The yarn for my first project also arrived -an ebay bargain! Rowanspun 4 ply tweed in 'sludge', which I think will make a great winter wrap if my skills are up to it. Sludge is greeny, browny....tweedy...... sludge colour! It was a potential sweater but its a bit fine in retrospect, 3mm needles would be needed! My beautiful gifted Cherry Hill lace yarn will be kept until my lace knitting is proven to be worthy of it!
