I've made a striped picnic blanket from this damn good Yorkshire wool. I image myself reclining on the windwept Yorkshire Moors, eagerly awaiting  Heatcliffe, as he strides over to tussocks, eager to embrace me in his powerful arms. Unfortunately, I am no Cathy, the attractive young damsel in the Wuthering Heights novel. I see myself as a Norah Batty, that rather ridiculous character from the TV show, Last of The Summer Wine!
