Last weekend Granny Greens my craft group organised a meet up for us to knit in public as part of World Wide Knit in Public Day at the Farmers Market. The sun shone and I made tremendous progress on a crocheted baby blanket. Other were knitting with the biggest needles ever (Morag), socks on 4 needles! (Nicola) and Hexipuffs (Hannah).
All the way from the Netherlands - Yvestown shop
A blanket on its way to Knit-A-Square (the blue squares were kindly donated by my friend June)
After the rather gray pics recently I thought it might be nice to see a blanket I completed last weekend. I got donated a large bedspread mostly dark blue which was hurrah! made of 8 inch crochet squares. So unravelling it and mixing it up with my luried grannies was a relatively quick job. 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.

I managed to visit Loop and splashed out on some lovely laceweight wool which is being made into shrug.
