Description

The next meeting of EdinburghCND will be on Monday 4th November from 6pm to 7pm at ACE - 17 West Montgomery Place, Edinburgh, EH7 5HA

One of the things we will be talking about:

Dear knitters and crocheters and disarmament friends,
Would you be up for being involved in creating a Scottish section of the Wool against Weapons scarf that will stretch 7 miles on 16th August 2014 between the  Women’s Peace Camp at Aldermaston and Burghfield (the other Nuclear Weapons Establishment site) in Berkshire?

The idea is that individuals knit or crochet a  scarf (100cm long and 60cm wide) in pink wool on large needles, any design. There's loads more information on the websitehttp://www.woolagainstweapons.co.uk/ and some inspiring pictures of scarves that have been knitted. You don't need to be a fantastic knitter, you just need to cast on and get started. And if you've never knitted or crocheted, well, maybe this is a good incentive to learn the basics!

Many of us in Scotland have started already, and if we each encourage others to take part and sew all of our scarves together we could create a Scottish length that could stretch part of the way down the Royal Mile in Edinburgh. This would be an excellent way of attracting publicity to the issue of trident and keeping it on the agenda during the independence debate.
