I’m back home now and here are some photos of the second island we visited. In the first you can just about see the town and church on top of the cliff (safe from pirate attack).
Folegandros is drier and rockier than Serifos, and the wild flowers were mostly yellow:
There were some poppies:
Some interesting doors and painted pavements in the narrow streets of the main town:
And more flowers and churches:
On the last day in Athens, I visited another section of the Folk Art Museum – where photography is permitted – here are some photographs of old photographs of carding, spinning and knitting:
There are lots more images to sort through – details of costumes, and some knitted items – I’ll post them next week.
I’m still working on the Mughal variant (approx 60%) and will be putting out a call for some test knitters soonish.
In fact I’ll probably need a lot of test knitting soon as there are lots of things in development – once I’m a bit more organised, I hope to set up a test knitting thread on the Ravelry Knitlab forum.
Cold Mountain is on the cover of the new Jimmy Beans catalogue of hand dyed yarns.
