Knitting the Queen
You can stand this knitted Queen as a stately sentry by your finest English breakfast tea caddy; dangle her from your Christmas tree in time for the Queen’s festive speech; or send her as a stately souvenir to someone who thinks all things royal are awfully quaint. This Queen is the young and funky model. You can make the more mature Queen by adding silvery-grey hair and HUGE speech-reading glasses for authenticity. And what kind of a Queen Liz would she be without her faithful corgis? You can stitch her tiny snuffling hounds, too. Just make sure to walk them twice a day. They may have little legs, but they still need exercise. Order the Stitch London Knitting Pack for the special price of £15.99 (rrp £21.49 free p&p (UK only).
