    Kilted against COVID-19

    How's your perfectly normal April 1 going so far? Saw the hashtag #kiltedagainstcovid19 on Instagram and thought I'd join in.

    I'm ready for today's very serious Zoom conference calls for work and have already posted the Morning Prayer video on Facebook for my congregation. No kidding!

    Really, it's just like wearing a blanket instead of sweatpants. Hope you all have a great day!

    Haven't posted to instagram but I've been kilted several days since we've been practicing social distancing. Today's version is below which worked well for doing some school work with my kids, planning some distance learning for my students and doing some marking.

    Strange times indeed.

    I really like the jacket. It's the first time I've seen one like it. Thanks.

    Stoff, this was a prototype hunting kilt cut jacket from Empire Canvas Works, they had a contest here years ago and I was lucky enough to win it. I know they used to sell these at the Scottish TRtan Museum in Franklin NC and I know that Matt Newsome had one but I have never seen anyone else with one. It is unlined Harris Tweed and keeps me quite warm in the spring fall and early winter.

    McMurdo,

    Is there any way to get good multiple view photos of it, both worn and placed flat? If so, I might be able to come up with an approximate pattern to make one that is similar.

    Thanks,

    Stoff
