Hence why I now mark mine up copyright, keep seeing them reproduced elsewhere! (I don't mind as long as people ask!)

We have a WW2 jacket, but sadly no great war era. Can't imagine it being a massive task to reline a WW2 model and tweak it a bit?

Re: Rag rugs

Same here, I've often wondered just how far back they go and in what form. There are some very old examples in a museum up near my mother in northumberland.
would be interested to hear what others have to say.

Re: Dog types in Medieval/Tudor/Stuart times

Can reccomend a rescue greyhound. We went to the rescue centre looking for a terrier and came away with a greyhound. He's the most gentle, daft, loyal lazy b**ger.

Sally, you're a gem. I've given up on a few corchet projects that I think could be saved with blocking.

I can't knit, but I do love crochet and it's so portable!

I have to admit, being more of a stitcher than a wool worker, I didn't know about blocking either...

If you have an email address I can mail you photos from the march that some group members took part in, in 2010. All of their kit is original or museum quality repro.
