Off Sick…


I had very much intended to have a ‘Tartan True or False’ post up today, but I spent yesterday trying to bolster my immune system since my brother (and flatmate) and the rest of my family (whom I saw during the holidays) have PLAGUE and have been trying to infect me.

So, we’ll do something different: what myths/perceptions/pet peeves about tartan, Scotland, tweed, Scottish dress, and Scottish history do you have and want explained or proved true or false? I have my list of constant questions, but what do you want to know? Message me through the contact page, by email  at tartantinted (at) gmail (dot) com, or leave a comment and I will answer them next week when I hopefully will not be ill.

  1. Oh this is going to be fun 🙂

    That tartan, the Hunting Stewart, is still on the loom at the NMS. Interesting that it was set up as a balanced warp even though it’s an asymmetric sett.

      That’s quite heartwarming, actually, to think some things are still the same at the NMS. Though I really do need to take a weaving course somewhere because I understand what you mean but not the way I feel I should.

      And I am especially looking forward to writing the post, now! 😉
