Top outside McAree Bros on Howe St Edinburgh v Portobello promenade. The top one to my mind elicits a sense of delight in that someone has taken time and skill to¬†decorate something already there. It was knitted and used cabling and patterning. The colours were also chosen carefully to make a ‘run’. As for the Portobello one that to my mind is just a bunch of yarn wound around that sign and a couple of¬† pom poms added. It’s frankly a mess, little thought, little beauty and didn’t make me think or give me a lift when I saw it. Apart from a desire to use the scissors in my bag to cut it down (but I didn’t).

What do you think?
