This Makes Me Smile

I recently posted the link to this book on a forum in Ravelry and people either loved it or hated it. What do you think?

It is just such a typically English thing to do. Did we have a Knitted American Presidential Election? No, I didn't think so. However, I have to admit on closer inspection the characters in the book are quite lovable in their own way, and I do like the corgis. I did have a mad idea to knit it for The Knit Studio but having looked at all the instructions have decided (wiselyI think) not to put myself under so much knitting pressure. I may change my mind of course, it is a Wedding after all! And talking of Royal Wedding Souvenirs - did anyone see the mug that has a photograph of the wrong Prince on it? Hilarious, how many people will realise before they buy it?

I was given another link, still Royal Wedding themed - it made my day! Enjoy!


  1. I'm not into the Royal family/wedding etc but I do kind of like that. It's quirky enough not to be twee or thought of as Granny knitting. Gets a thumbs up (but I'd never actually knit them other than the Queen - I'd like my own personal knitted Queen). xxx

    Loving the blog.

  2. I just love this, it's so corney that it makes it worth buying and I think I might make the Archbishop...he is Welsh after all!...and maybe a little Corgi to keep Max company
    Have a great weekend xx

  3. I think it's funny - I'm not a royalist and so I find it nicely ironic. But some people love it because they believe in the monarchy and the Royal Wedding. Either way, I think the corgis are truly the stars of the show!
