Remember how I posted about knit a square and my craft group’s attempt to crochet and knit enough squares to get to the height of Greyfriar’s Bobby (including the plynth, of course!) for AIDS orphans in South Africa and it was a success! 500 squares were made in the end, most of them by Mary who organised the challenge! Unfortunately the big reveal was scheduled at pretty short notice and on a day when most people including myself were working, so it was quite a small affair, but it looked like it was great fun for those that did make it and they engaged lots of passers by. Got great online media coverage as well, including this adorable sketch by the edinburgh sketcher.
The brilliant photos were taken by pathlost on flickr and are all clickable for source.
If you are inspired to make some squares yourself, you can find more information on the knit a square website.
