Had To Share This

Forget the tea towels, tea cups and saucers. 
Fabulously witty British knitting designer 
Fiona Goble has come up with my absolutely 
favorite souvenir of all for this latest 
royal wedding. Knit Your Own

Help William And Kate Tie The Knit If you haven't received an invitation to the royal wedding there's no need to despair - as now you can knit your own. An unusual souvenir book has been published full of patterns detailing how to knit ten 'characters' from Prince William and Kate Middleton's big day. This includes the bride and groom themselves, the Queen, Prince Philip, Prince Charles, his wife Camilla and best man Prince Harry. The intricate designs see Prince William in full uniform, including blue Garter sash and Golden Jubilee medal. Meanwhile, Kate's diamond and sapphire engagement ring and a tiny tiara are also faithfully depicted in wool. There is also design for the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams who will marry the couple on April 29 at Westminster Abbey. And you can even knit your own corgi - the monarch's favourite breed of dog The knitting patterns are all contained in the 64 page manual 'Knit Your Own Royal Wedding' by Fiona Goble, which retails for GBP 9.99. The book also contains instructions on how to create customised guests, enabling you to knit yourself into proceedings. And once you've created the cast of characters you can pose them against a backdrop of Westminster Abbey and Buckingham Palace's famous balcony. According to publisher Ivy Press: "This piece of yarn pageantry is funny, charming and easy enough for even a novice to tackle". 'Knit Your Own Royal Wedding' by Fiona Goble (Ivy Press RRP GBP 9.99) For more information visit 754958f

I can't wait to get mine, the only souvenir 
so far that I truly covet.

Hoping Ms Goble and everyone else concerned 
will forgive me for using these photos before 
acquiring permission. (I have yet to discover 
contact info.) Just couldn't contain 
my enthusiasm and amusement. 

Ordering mine now.
