Poppies, poppies, poppies.

Exciting news! knitonthenet's Knit a Poppy Campaign is featured in This Week in Ravelry #61.

This coincides with the official launch today of the British Legion's 2009 Poppy Appeal which supports present and former members of the British armed forces and their families, emotionally, socially and financially.

We hope to get lots more people downloading Just call me Ruby's pattern and donating some money to support the British Legion's Poppy Appeal.

If you are one of them, please do add your brooch as a Ravelry project, share it with the knitonthenet group and post a photograph of your finished poppy in the knitonthenet forum.

For those not on Ravelry, you can also email me at ingrid[at]knitonthenet[dot]com and I will be posting photographs of the poppies in the blog and on our facebook fan page.

We are keeping a total of how much has been raised on the site: at the time of writing it stands at £224. Please do let us know if you raise further monies for the appeal with your poppies.

To start the gallery of poppies, here is my first effort. Let's see yours!
