The knitting forecast is good to excellent
"When the National Trust for Scotland advertised two properties to let on Fair Isle, the most remote inhabited island in Britain, they were expecting the usual dozen or so applicants. So why the sudden flood of interest from the United States, with 9,000-odd inquiries and more than 90 applications? It was the knitting, apparently."
I was one of the 9,000 who inquired. From the sounds of it, they want people to move and stay there, whereas I only wanted to go for a few months. I didn't submit an application.
