The Big Knit

Everybody will be familiar with the Innocent Big Knit by now.

Every year thousands of little woolly hats are made and sent in to be placed on smoothie bottles. For each hat-wearing smoothie sold 25p is donated to AgeUK.

These are some of my hats for this year...




They are easy enough to make, but the tricky part is wrestling these perfect pigeon-sized hats away from fashion-conscious birds...




This year Innocent have extended the deadline to allow more folks to send in little woolly hats 'til FRIDAY 29th OCTOBER, so get knitting!

Fabulous hats Charlie! I had no idea they'd extended the deadline - I may just knit a hat or four this weekend.

Love your little hats (so beautifully modelled!) I thought I'd missed the deadline so I might have to get knitting too.

And what a model he is :-) Does Mr Pigeon have any family that need new homes, he is soooo cute but your shops seem to be empty :-(

Oh I have missed Mr PIgeon. I have. He looks very chic in his hat. Send him my love (and to you too - hope you are well)
