Passing the window of the Age Uk charity shop I spotted the notice that the Big Knit is upon us. Basically you knit a little hat for an Innocent Smoothie. They go on sale in February and Innocent Smoothies donate 25p for each one knit, to turn into blankets, hot water bottles and afternoon get togethers for the elderly. Full details can be found on the The Big Innocent Knit website, I tried to do you a link, but their cookies stopped me from doing so, sorry.
I spent a happy afternoon making these four.
I followed the basic pattern, using the little balls of wool from left over projects. Now if you look on the website, then there are some super patterns, which are very tempting. It was fun to do, but I can’t help thinking it would have been better to just give the £1 to the charity shop as a donation. However, I suppose that the hats raise awareness when they appear in the shops? Do you think so, or did I just waste my time?
