Hi Susan, What a terrible shock the news about your partner must be.  We'll keep you and your partner in our thoughts.  Please keep in touch with us via our fb page or blog if you would like some online craft buddies during this difficult time.  Take care of yourself. x

Hi llse, Edinburgh is a bit far for me to travel, I have crohn's disease and have panic attacks if im far from the house just now. I have been put on diazepam,and then a bombshell was dropped on me 2 weeks ago my partner has been diagnosed with cancer and it has spread to his liver, im not coping too well at the moment. Thanks for the invite, hopefull one day ill manage to come through.

Hi, My name is Susan and I have just joined this group, I was looking for a local group if possible. I live in Ballingry Fife. Last November I was diagnosed with crohn's disease, I then decided to knit for various charities doing wee preemie hats, cardigans, scarfs, blankets etc. I would love to meet up with locals have a coffee and cake and knit of course. I have been knitting for 50 yrs so you can say that I am experienced, I love knitting aran also children and adults. Anyone want to contact me do not hesitate I am a good listener. Take care, Susan x

Hopping in to say that if any KASers in Edinburgh are free this friday at 11am Granny Greens is organising a photo call at Grayfriars Bobby on George IV Bridge. It would be cool to have people knitting in front of Bobby (or crocheting!) I have also made Bobby a mini orphan blanket so he can stand in solidarity with the South African orphans.

hey! just a quick note to say Granny Greens an Edinburgh Craft group is having a KAS evening on monday. I'm going to talk about the work of KAS and then we'll sit and make squares. South African snacks provided! We're a very friendly group so do come if you are in the area more info here http://grannygreens.co.uk/2013/10/special-workshop-crafting-for-a-c...

I have seen your squares and they are never boring - completely the opposite!  I am a long-standing fan of your very creative use of colour and pattern to produce such appealing  results.

Comment by Harrison's mom on July 11, 2013 at 8:16am

I will look forward to seeing your efforts. Very impressed that you are doing Tunisian crochet too. I just do plain old granny squares. Different textured yarns and different sized squares just make me feel like I am being creative when I am actually being quite boring.
