Knit a Poppy

My Knit a Poppy Effort

My Knit a Poppy Effort (any likeness between me and the model purely coincidental)

It’s not too late to show your respect in knitted form for those who fell in the great wars (and continue to fall in more recent wars).  This wonderful poppy brooch pattern costs £2 to download from Knit On The Net, all proceeds go to the Poppy Appeal (the pattern is only available until midnight on 12th November 2009 so not long to go now).

I think it’s a rather apt way to express your remembrance, particularly appropriate as the ‘Make Do & Mend’ ethos from the WWII era is so relevant and popular today (fortunately for us for different reasons). Knit on the Net have raised over £500 so far – help them push it up to £1000.

P.S. 2 days on and the total is up to £1980 – keep going!

    Hi, do you have the British Legion Poppy knitting pattern from last year? Warrington Soroptimist club would like to knit some to sell on behalf of the Poppy Appeal but as we knit slowly we really need to be getting a move on!
    Many thanks
