    Speaking for the rest of Canada, we'd be glad to have you ! We are a big country with room to roam.

    Glad your first kilt turned out so well and here is hoping the next does the same.

    Hello, and well done on the kilt.
    My own take on the kilt is rather sombre at the moment - my excuse is that I am doing a lot of playing music for border morris and longsword, and the Cotswold morris side which is up and coming has also chosen to wear black. I have been wearing black kilts, today's is ankle length, but I have shorter ones to wear with hose or leggings.
    I make them myself, as I have a long history of making garments for myself and others. They are not difficult to construct if you understand how to use the grain of the fabric and reinforcing foundations - plus a little maths.
    I find the kilt very practical, and other's in the dance teams have become interested in wearing them as the summer temperatures are making the standard kit trousers, shirts and jackets just too hot for dancing.
    Somewhere I have kilts in tartan, camouflage material and various other patterns - some are too large now and require alteration and others require slight repairs having been worn on heathland and in forest where the vegetation can be rather fierce.
    This forum loves photos, so do keep that in mind if you can provide images.

    Welcome from Sunny Southern California! Especially as you're female and a Scot, two things I'd like to see increase here.

    Great choice on the Hunting Stewart Weathered. I too had seen those photos and love the look of that tartan.

    HS being tricky because it's an asymmetrical sett, I've seen a variety of approaches as to the pleating and also in what part of the sett is used to centre on the front apron. I'd love to see your kilt when it's done.

    About clashing with wedding-colours, I used to pipe at around 40 weddings a year and I tried to be sensitive to that. I know it's something that most pipers don't give a thought to, but here in Southern California brides tend to put great emphasis on it.

    I found that a Black Watch kilt didn't worry anybody.

    Hello wee yin and welcome from a fellow newbie from Central Alberta, Canada.

    i think your choice of tartan is great. As for blurring your face; in today's internet society, every young lass should pay particular attention to their personal security. i've told my daughter just as much on many occasions.

    Love the little cow cartoon, cowtoon. Would you mind if i copied it to send to my daughter? She's a little under the weather and could use a wee laugh. She is probably about your age actually. She and her family live about 4,000 km east of me (Province of New Brunswick).

    Again, welcome. No doubt the Rabble will take good care of you just as they have me.

    I have nothing at all against wegies You have a lovely city with some very nice people. I have serveral friends and a few relations who live in Glasgow and I often drop by myself to visit Kelvin Grove and the science museum. I prefer Edinburgh of course, but that doesn't mean I don't appreciate Glasgow for her own unique beauty.
