The latest creation can be found just outside the Co-op on La Route des Quennevais in St. Brelade.

All we know of the mystery knitter is she is native to the parish, having previously told Express"I only moved to St. Brelade last June and love the parish - it is so friendly and thought postbox toppers would be appreciated by the friendly people of the Parish."
