Animals! Poppies!

A British Wool Weekend update...

So, we were all making farm animals to be displayed at the show and sold for a donation into the Help for Heroes tin. (We were, weren't we??) Here's the first of the family of mice I'm creating:

Photo: You never get just one mouse, do you? So I have a few more to make - big ones, baby ones - as my contribution to the knitted farm animals being requested for British Wool Weekend 2014.They'll be sold at the show with proceeds going to Help for Heroes. BWW14 is also requesting knitted or crocheted poppies in support of the British Legion. If you'd like to contribute anything but won't be going to the show, please feel free to drop them off at the shop and I'll pass them on to the organiser.

Now, there's a new request, an alternative to the farm animal theme is the Make a Poppy for the British Legion option. This is in remembrance of the outbreak of war in 1914 and all poppies made will be sold with proceeds to the British Legion.

There are lots of patterns - many of them free - for animal and poppy making, available online. Any size, any style, is the remit - be as creative as you like!
