Remembrance poppy.

From Cosmicpluto knits!

lapel poppy

Remembrance Day is this week (along with Armistice Day/Veteran’s Day) and here in Canada we wear a poppy to remember the sacrifices of those who came before, and to remind ourselves to look to the future in peace.

These knit poppies are super quick to knit and I love that we as knitters can make them with our own two hands (and pointy sticks).

You can download my Poppy for Remembrance pattern from Ravelry here.

Poppies are not bought or sold; you can make a contribution to your local Royal Canadian Legion or through me to be passed on to them.

    I bought our poppies last week from a Veteran in front of our local Home Hardware — there aren’t that many of the old veterans left to sell poppies……now there will be a whole new generation of veterans…..it’s sad.

    Knitted poppies are actually better than paper because they’re eco-friendly, you can easily recycle the wool…
    As long as the wearer gives to the legion, I think it’s a better alternative!
