An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever

A Springbok is a small South African antelope. Here's a picture in Farmers' Weekly magazine of 2nd October 2015 that I used to help me with the design:
In centuries past, great numbers of them used to suddenly migrate over huge areas, destroying everything in their path. That doesn't happen any more, which is probably just as well, but small numbers of them do come and go on this farm.
The Springbok is also the emblem of the South African rugby team. For an American's view of rugby, see Kristen's post here.
