I’m hooked on the past

While I have been knitting on the closer-to-being-done blanket (2 more pattern sections and one more stockinet section, then the border), I have to have something to keep my brain busy.  I have listened to all of my audio books multiple times.  So, I looked around on YouTube for other things.  Some of the things I found I have shared in the past, but, lately, I have been rewatching Tales from the Green Valley, a 12-part, BBC program showing a working farm for a whole year as if it were 1620. Every time I watch these, I learn something new.  So, I thought I’d share them with you.  There is a lot of information that would be as useful today as it was back then.

I have become quite a fan of Ruth Goodman through these shows.  The things she knows and can do astounds the mind.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I have.
