    • Love that and really want to try knitting a poppy… A handknit poppy is a heartfelt poppy, after all! Have you knit any poppies? πŸ™‚ πŸ’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 Β£1 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 πŸ™‚ 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 linkβ€”I’ll give it a try! πŸ™‚ πŸ’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.
