So walking through St Germaine on my hols at New Year .. I passed a shop with these scarves in the window. Sorry about the reflections it was the best I could do. And I got excited because I realised I’d seen a genuine Sophie Digard crocheted scarf in the wild – so to speak.
Its celebrated in South Africa with the call to make things better. Some people commit to volunteering for 67 minutes (the length of years of public service Mandela gave). I shall continue to crochet squares for one of the 500 children who are orphaned by AIDS in Southern Africa every day. If you are a crafter and have some stash do think of doing one. Info here. All you need to do is make an 8 ” square crochet/knitted/loomed with a 18 inch tail to help sewing and post it out there. If you live in Edinburgh contact me I’m happy to post out squares. Above is a blanket sewn up with 30 or so squares I sent to SA in the last month.
