Just a little project I wanted to do for Remembrance day or Armistice Day if you prefer. Knitted and felted using up small bits of pure wool yarn so that I could felt them. Very pleased with the results, sewn a piece of felt on the reverse holding the safety pin. So much nicer than the paper ones, maybe I'll make some more for next year.

Imogen's red top and poppies for Remembrance Day
So we all have one of these today, above is how Imogen has gone to school today - they are wearing red too and having a special remembrance assembly this morning. The officially sold poppy is one I've kept from a previous year, I don't like to see them wasted and thrown away. I don't buy them year after year but make a donation to the charity instead.
Another wonderful way to commemorate those lost and those still in need of support is to download the 2 minutes silence single DVD, a moving tribute, and a wonderful idea.
