A quick post today to show you this year's collection of little hats. This is the 4th year now that I've taken part in The Big Knit to raise money to help keep old people in the UK warm each winter. I started knitting these hats way back last October, with the aim of knitting one hat each week. (Thanks for the great idea Lynne!) Whilst not actually knitting one per week, rather knitting them in little bursts, I have managed to knit 52 hats. These little hats will be going on top of Innocent Smoothie bottles in Sainsbury's and Boots from November 23rd, and each behatted bottle sold raises 25p for a great cause. The forecasters are already predicting another cold winter, so the more hats that are knitted, the better! The deadline for posting hats is Friday 14th October, so there's still time to knit a few using up oddments in your stash. There are free patterns to download. I'm really impressed with some people's creativity - there are some pretty amazing hats over on Ravelry! Belinda and Betty kindly agreed to model this year's collection, so without further ado, I proudly present the 2011 Innocent Smoothie Hat Collection! Ta dah!! Which one is your favourite?!
I'll see you soon with an update on my Longshadows scarf. I might also have received the yarn for the next Fall in Full Color project, so I really need to get a wiggle on with this one! Crikey! Have a good week! xxx
