Why do you use orm sometimes, and ort at other times?

I believe "orm" refers to yourself and "ort" refers to others.

Oh, this might be an old comment, at least I assume so from your profile. I wish the mobile app showed timestamps.

Would this be what we lowlanders would call a bunnet?

So, this is some sort of headgear, and presumably mot the nineteenth century female hat an American would call "bonnet." Is this just the kind of knit winter cap shown in the picture (a beanie, toque, or stocking cap in the US), or coild it refer to other sorts of hats?

a bunnet is also known as a flat cap, if that helps at all?
