Congratulations to Orla Carey, October Knitter of the Month!

I have known Orla for years now, although we only get to see each other when I rarely go to SCA events. Alas, that entertaining part of my life pretty much ended when I started travelling to fiber festivals. I highly recommend doing things with the SCA if you are interested in the medieval and Renaissance time periods, or if you have kids that are. The people you meet are amazing, and you can take classes in almost any craft, taught by experts, for free or inexpensively.
Orla has knitted extensively with UPP yarns. Here are some of her projects:

Thanks so much Orla, for making such beautiful projects with our yarn!
