Poppies

Some random hyperbolic crochet rounds.....


with needlefelted middles...



...each is unique as I was experimenting with trebles, half trebles,


hook size....
 

number of stitches into the magic ring...
 

...and there might have been a few lapses in concentration.. as no counting was
 required... it all adds to the individuality!


I have suggested the recipients put a donation in their local Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal box.


Seven have been made in total (as I had some requests after the first five!)
Stash busting 28g in all.

I do love cheery little poppies! They the perfect ruffly Poppy look to them!
Our American Legion always gives out paper Poppies on Memorial Day, and I always buy a few ~ reminds me of my Grandfather, he wasn't a veteran ~ but always bought a "bouquet" of them in support.
