Knitting a Remembrance Day Poppy
This Remembrance Day I started my search for a knitting project and this is what I found. This is a special year because it’s the 100th Anniversary of the end of WWI. So I started to dig in my scrap yarn basket and found a beautiful deep red yarn, a dark blue yarn and a variegated green yarn that complimented each other beautifully then I started to knit.
As I started knitting other thoughts came into my mind and realized I don’t want to forget the freedom I have today was won at a great cost of life. Funny! That knitting a poppy for this Remembrance Day got me thinking about what this little flower should mean to me and maybe with all the turmoil that is happening in the world right now we should pay extra attention to what this poppy means.
This was a wonderful knitting project for me to knit up and I wanted to share it with you all.
Here is the link for the Woman’s Weekly knit & crochet poppy for Remembrance Day (Poppy Appeal). I hope you all enjoy knitting or crocheting this poppy as much as I did.

Questions: What are you Knitting or crocheting today, and does it have a special meaning for you? You don’t have to answer, just whisper it to yourself.
Note: I have to say that I crocheted the middle piece of the poppy because I didn’t like the knit instructions and it just didn’t work out right. I just did a magic circle of six chains and increased as I went about three to four rows.
God Bless & Knit On, never forgetting
