A weblog, mostly about knitting but other topics appear

Origins December 1, 2016

Thomas F  Blower, my 12th Great Grandfather 1520-1568, came from Lavenham in Suffolk England.  Lavenham is a charming town.  One of our sons lived in Ipswich for several years and we visited nearby Lavenham one frosty day in December.  Lavenham was a wool center  in    medieval times and I especially enjoyed the displays regarding weaving and spinning. Right  now I can’t find my photos from that time but here are a few relating to weaving and spinning.
