Finally finished the plaid I started back in 2012.

This is worked in 100% New Lanark Wool. It must have a lot of lanolin in it because it caused my hands to go red, swollen and painful. Lanolin makes it water-resistant, though, so it will be very useful for the boat,

It's quite a prickly texture and reminds MWNN and me of the Western ponchos worn by Clint Eastwood. (I think it's something to do with the material, colours and fringing)
