We helped commemorate the 100th anniversary of the start of WWI by yarnbombing the Parade in Liskeard with poppies. These added to the Field of Remembrance set out there before Remembrance Day. Lots of local knitters and crocheters contributed to the hundreds of poppies that were made (thank you!)and there was a chance to join in at the 2014 Wool Market.
If you're interested in knitting your own poppies, we found good patterns on this facebook page 5000 poppies. Poppy patterns are here.
