Skirl, n. A shrill cry or sound. [Prov. Eng. & Scot.], Noah Webster’s 1913 Dictionary of the American Language
Often associated with bagpipes, as in “the skirl of the pipes.”
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.

Decided to clean up that front page, so put awards & badges over here. Hope no one minds. 😉
