    • Love that and really want to try knitting a poppy… A handknit poppy is a heartfelt poppy, after all! Have you knit any poppies? ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ’œ Jackie@KWH

      • No but I have one. Two years ago my favourite cashmere red jumper accidentally got put in the washing machine and shrunk. I cut it up and made lots of poppies from it and some Christmas tree decorations of post pillar boxes. Instead of selling them people had to promise to donate ยฃ1 each year to the RBL (who help wounded soldiers) or Cancer Research UK. I should take pictures of them. Meanwhile I don’t know if you can open this BBC website with poppy knitting patterns: https://freestyleburbage.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/Poppy-Patterns.pdf

        • Uh ohhh… too bad about your shrunken cashmere jumper :-/ Yet how woolerful to transform its felted fabric into poppies and other Christmas decor ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope you will take pics. And please send me your link if/when you decide to blog about them, since I’m not sure what a “post pillar box” is… THX… How thoughtful to think of trading your creations for donations in support of your local veterans charity! Oh, and thanks for this poppy pattern linkโ€”I’ll give it a try! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ’œ Jackie@KWH

  8. A very moving post. Thank you also for sharing the video of “In Flanders Fields”, I never knew the story behind the poem and its always so much more direct to hear it read. Beautiful memorial message.
