Leith Library Knit Scotland

This is the Leith Library Knitting Group:

They meet every Wednesday night at 6.30pm and last night we challenged them to knit their own Scotland:

The challenge is part of a whole host of events we’re doing to celebrate Book Week Scotland here in Leith.

Knit your own Scotland shows you how to knit highland coos, Scotty dogs and Tunnocks Teacakes. You can even knit Andy Murray!

Knit your own Scotland launched this month and it’s already on its third reprint. The publishers Black and White are just around the corner from us so we were delighted when they gave us one of the last copies for our knitting group. We did ask very nicely.

Ruth will be knitting a scotch pie:

Anna will be knitting Bonny Prince Charlie:

Rajni will be knitting the Loch Ness monster:

Mandy will be knitting a thistle:

We chatted to Michelle about knitting and what she likes to read. Watch the video on youtube here:

After that Michelle bravely took up the challenge and agreed to knit a sheep:

We’ll be keeping you up to date with the progress of the knitting group here on the Leith Library blog.
