Square Circle Forum

This discussion aims to give you an up-close and personal look at what happens on opening days at the Knit-a-Square barn.  I'm a partially-sighted volunteer who who attends with my guide dog Tango and my driver Bongi, who has also become a keen volunteer.  While everyone else opens parcels, sorts squares and packs items ready for distribution, I listen and take mental notes so I can pass on something of the atmosphere on the ground.  Enjoy!

Jude, that is a great idea. I will make a note to contact you next time I go!

Please do, did you visit the wool shop in Cirencester?  The Ravely one sadly closed down.


I visited one shop, a tiny space crammed with exciting yarns, and bought two balls of local British wool in forest green. Don't know the name of the shop but it was a couple of doors away from a great pet shop where my daughter bought a gift for her boxer dog back home in SA!

Oh yes it is tiny, I wonder how the owner knows where everything is! Every colour of the rainbow in every quality wool everyone should visit it including Cath Riley and Joan Humm! Lol xx

I missed you Leanne! Welcome home and thank you for helping us all be there. 

Lovely to have you back Leanne, your blogs always help those of us scattered across the globe to feel very much a part of the team at the Barn! Wish we could all join in with those regular birthday parties - especially the cake!

yes love love reading your reports Leanne! I'm doing some handwarmers at the moment and cross paws they arrive in time for the winter distributions!
