When You Think About Running Away....

I received this link from a friend yesterday:

Wanted: Knitters for a Fair Isle

Take a listen and you can dream too! Apparently the National Trust of Scotland is looking for renters for two croft houses on Fair Isle. The rent is 300 pounds for a year! Here's some information on the property to let.

While the cheap rent and beautiful location would stir ideas of escape on most days, the real kicker is this line; "Although the Trust cannot offer any direct employment there are skill shortages in several areas but particularly in the building trades and knitting." You can be employed in knitting? Really?

I looked at the Arts & Crafts links and not only was impressed with the knitting business, but saw that there is a boat-building business as well. You might remember that my husband is obsessed with wooden boats. Put the wooden boats together with knitting, and the dream of relocation gets better. I do love the idea of crafting for a living. Ah, my dreams.

And here is my latest project--Naturwolle. More on Monday!
