No - it is a knitted blood droplet!!!!!
The Blood Transfusion Service is organising a big campaign next year and have requested knitted blood droplets for their displays. This is the 2D version.. Our knit n natter group were asked to be part of the video in the campaign but being shy folk (!) we have decided to stay behind the scenes and keep calm and carry on knitting :)
We are beginning to be asked to knit for other good causes too - all good stuff. Who would have thought that a small group of knitters would come together and knit so much stuff for charity?
