I am getting so many comments about the project … people just loving the concept and sharing it with friends and fellow crafters. I think we will have a wonderful display in 2015 … lots of gorgeous poppies flooding Fed Square in Melbourne … and maybe even elsewhere.
Thank you for the positive response … I hope you enjoy making the poppies as much as I am and feel free to post all your WIP photos and stories on the facebook page (5000 poppies) or send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can post for you.
This image features Wendy Fowler’s poppies posted on the facebook page. She has knitted them in 4 ply from the 8 ply pattern, and I assume they are a little smaller … and very cute with the button in the centre. I should mention that I am very happy to have some smaller poppies for the display in November. Will try this myself. Thank you Wendy.
