A gathering of like-minded women at the Borders General Hospital Chaplaincy Centre knitting pink panels to join together to form a seven-mile scarf to be stretched from Aldermaston to Burghfield on August 9 – but much more is needed.
It’s one huge woolly protest against the UK’s ongoing involvement with nuclear weapons.
There will be a pop-up shop in Selkirk High Street on May 17 (2-5pm). Members of the public are welcome to come along and pick up needles to start their own panel to knit a wee piece to contribute to a patchwork panel, or to knit part of the communal big section, where six knitters are working on the same piece simultaneously. Or one can just watch and view some of the completed panels.
