Scotland

Did you know that Scotland was where the modern game of golf was created? Scotland is part of the Great Britain, which includes England and Wales. Like Ireland, it was settled by Gaelic people, and many people still speak Scottish Gaelic, especially in the Highlands and islands of Scotland. Wool is clipped from the sheep they raise, dyed and woven into plaid material called tartans. Each pattern is unique to families (clans). These tartans were made into kilts, which are similar to skirts, and were worn be men and boys as part of their heritage. I tried to learn how to weave a tartan, but got distracted and chased the balls of wool over the room. Bad cat! Everything was tangled!   Purrs, Gulliver
