  1. I love this – it will be my next project. I am just finishing the Funchal Moebius and about to embark on the Tir Chonaill …. I am a friend of Sharon at Great British Yarns (she went to school with my sister). I live in Madeira and that was what attracted to to your pattern. I have never attempted anything as complex but I am getting braver!
