the big knit
Last year I knit 26 wee hats for the big knit - an annual event sponsored by Innocent Drinks in the UK to raise money for Age UK, a charity which helps with heating costs for seniors across the UK. Imagine, an average of 25,000 additional winter deaths amongst seniors yearly just because they can't afford to heat their homes!
The little hats were quick and easy to knit and just adorable when completed. But this year I'm planning to be more adventurous with my hats. All the clever and creative hats that others knit got me thinking - surely I can adapt finger puppet patterns to make hats the right size for these little juice bottles? Could be a lot of fun to knit. As soon as I finish the projects on needles I'm going to give it a try now while I still have lots of time.
