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?
