The Innocent Big Knit

Knitting miniature hats? Um, of course I’m in.
For the fifth year in a row now Innocent smoothies have run the Innocent Big Knit in aid of Age Action. What happens is – you knit a teeny hat {pattern can be found here}, donate it to Innocent or directly to an Age Action charity shop, said adorable hats are popped onto unsuspecting bottled beverages, and for every fashionable fruit drink purchased, 30 cent goes towards supporting older people during the colder and lonelier months.
I jumped on board this year and so far I’ve produced one measly practice hat. Black and white stripes with some faux hydrangeas. Yummy, no? And are you really all that surprised? …

I’m hoping to whip up a couple fancier hats in the coming weeks. I’m thinking skulls, kitties, possibly tandem hats – we’ll see. Or even better – got any crafty ideas?
As for the rest of this week, check back here on Friday as I’ll be sharing my latest and biggest revamp to date. Totes cannot wait.
xx A

    awww that is so stinking cute!! Great cause too and a novel way to fund raise. Like the skulls and kitties ideas too. What about something geeky/nerdy themed too? Out of interest how long do they take you to knit?

      They don't take long to knit at all. About 20-30 minutes. They're super cute and I can't wait to knit MOAR.

      Nerdy ones. On it.

    Love how even your bottle of Innocent matches your colour scheme!! Add the stripy black and white hat and the hydrangeas… it just screams you! Damn your stylishness (but love it!)
