It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

knitted treeThe wonderful ladies who attend Wester Hailes Library Knitting Group have been working hard again, this time they have produced a magnificent 7ft (!)  knitted Christmas tree including decorations.

The group of 15 ladies have been working on the project since the summer and have knitted over 300 green squares all of different shades and styles to give the tree more texture. They then knitted/crafted Christmas Crackers, Candy Canes and Baubles to adorn the tree, not to mention various small trees that have been dotted around the library.

The only disappointed people have been the nursery visit from Juniper Green Nursery who wanted to pull the crackers!

The tree will be in the library until the 6th of January so please come along and see it.
