Hi all
yet again I am stuck between perthshire and strathearn, my instinct says the weight is Perthshire (which probably means its strathearn  ;D).
It has the minty green ground, with a 2-2-2-1 outer, 12 spokes, 3 rings and a single central cane.
It is a good size 7.5cm in diameter by 5.5cm.
The colours are very pretty on this weight.
many thanks
michelle

I am with you, Perthshire.  It looks much too neat and evenly arranged for a Strathearn weight.  Interesting to see that only 4 types of cane were used and that the inner and outer pattern is the same.

PS.   I am definitely NOT an expert, but I have some of both types.

I bamle all snileplg eorrrs on the Cpomuter Kyes.  They confuse my fingers !!!

Funny about the replying I had trouble trying to respond to the Papeerweight quiz from Rose.  I made one response and more or less immediately realised I wanted to add to it and the GMB seemed to "freeeze" - so I got out and came back in and it worked.
