Kilt Hose Sighting

Remember  these ?

Oh, it looks as if we have a kilt hose sighting ….

and one involving a kilt of Campbell Ancient Tartan !

Two days short of the anniversary of this post , by sheer coincidence I recieved this photo and a short message from Mr Campbell Scot, which I am so very grateful for, and thought I’d share it with you :

Hi Jen ~

I had occasion to pull on my kilt hose today and I got to thinking that it was about a year ago that you started knitting them for me. I thought I’d mark the occasion by sending you a postcard of them being worn proudly on location of Glenarm Castle which sits on the Antrim coast and is home to the Earl of Antrim and clan chieftain of The Antrim McDonnells. The occasion was the annual Highland Games that are held there where there is fierce rivalry between the Scots and Irish competitors that take part. But of course the rivalry only lasts on the competition field and these Celtic cousins always depart as the best of friends to do battle on another day. I must tell you that my socks have been greatly admired during their travels, and they will always remain my greatest treasure.
