West Coast Wandering

I had a break from weaving with Mr Knittingkitten on the West Coast Highlands in Fort William where we met up with some of my family which was wonderful. The scenery is a different kind of beautiful over there and we were blessed with lovely weather too and that always helps.

We visited the Commando Monument at Spean Bridge that commemorates those who fought in the Second World War.

Also at Spean Bridge I managed to find a weaver! Mary Carol does a weaving demonstration on a Glimakra loom to weave tweed fabric on an huge scale (think 20m warps…) and managed to convince me that a sectional beam is the way forward. Watch this space…

On the way home we stopped off at the Highland Wool Fair where I re homed some gorgeous laceweight yarn dyed by the talented Helen of Ripplescrafts.
