Beautiful Knitting

Where Mt.Mom knits, crochets, designs, and seeks Beauty as food for the soul.

It’s Piping Time Again. . . .

Posted by mtmom on July 24, 2008

So much excitement around here this past week.  Teen-genius called it “bagpipe immersion week”!  First was a week of eavesdropping at the Bagpiping School.  International instructors taught classes, including some which were open for us non-students to listen to — what fun!  Followed by the Northern Arizona Celtic Heritage Society’s Highland Games/Celtic Festival, with parade, vendors, kilted athletes, dancers, and more piping, including The Wicked Tinkers.  Here are some (tiny) photos of the activities.  (First one can link to a larger image.)  Knitting content will have to wait until next post — 2 kilt hose at a time on one 60″ circular.
