Edd the Duck

My decluttering has had its ups and downs, I have to admit. It’s a work in progress – much like my knitting!

One of my rediscovered treasures was a video (yes, a VHS video) of Edd the Duck, recorded from the TV over 25 years ago. Why would I have recorded and kept this? After all, Edd was (spoiler alert!) a hand puppet on Children’s TV, accompanying Andy Crane and Andi Peters in The Broom Cupboard, and appearing between the main programmes.

Well, encouraged by my young nieces, I had designed and knitted a jumper for Edd, with the Blue Peter logo worked on the front. We were all thrilled whenever he wore it and I managed to capture it on video a couple of times too …

So that’s my claim to fame – Edd the Duck wore my jumper!

Have you taken a trip down knitting memory lane recently? I’d love to hear about it!

Happy knitting!
