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!

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.
