Skirl, n. A shrill cry or sound. [Prov. Eng. & Scot.], Noah Webster’s 1913 Dictionary of the American Language
My Scottish mum and grandmum taught me a lot of useful skills, such as how scraps can be used to make something out of nothing.
Skirls is partly a tribute to these ladies, as well as an oblique nod to a musical affinity, plus the fact I’d just re-read a D.E. Stevenson book set in Scotland.
