One of the very great pleasures of living here is that the West Highland Way is on our doorstep. I walk out of our steading, and about a hundred yards up the way is a glorious landscape, at the far edges of which (on a really clear day) Ben Lomond and the Trossachs and the Arrochar Alps are all visible. I walk here every day, and enjoy these walks tremendously. Today I took my camera so you can see it too.
A while ago I won the designer knits ‘Knitting in the Wild’ competition for this photo of me knitting atop Ben Lomond. (Roll on Spring weather, and more mountain knitting). Today a nice prize package arrived, containing this lovely skein of Araucania
. . . this lantern moon keyring . . .
. . . and these knitting notecards.
Hurrah! Thanks Irene!
