I’m washing it and then it will be posted to Knit-a-Square in southern Africa to arrive for their winter and warm an orphan.

Just a wee reminder that if you would like to learn how to crochet granny squares – Granny Greens craft group is having a drop in session 6-8pm on monday at the Red Squirrel Bar on Lothian Road. You can’t miss us we’re the ones waving hooks and yarn. If you have a crochet hook bring it but there should be some spare yarn to practice on.

Also on Sat is the opening of Carola Gordons exhibtion Antiques and Allotments at the Open Eye Gallery Dundas St/ Abercromby Place corner.
