The Big Knit 2011.

Hello hello!

So it's that time of year again, autumn is coming and this means that Innocent Smoothie are again asking for lovely people to knit little hats for their bottles. They will then be sold in Boots and Sainsbury's for a two week period with 25p from each bottle sold going to Age UK, to help keep older people warm over the winter months.

I think this is a fab idea, and who can resist the lovely, unique and smile-inducing little hat nestling on the head of a bottle of Innocent Smoothie.
You can read all about it on their website here. They have instructions on how to knit here, with a beginner, intermediate and advanced level.

You just knit as many as you can and then send them to Innocent by October. This means that they will have hats of all colours, shapes and sizes sent to them and have no idea how many or what kind of hat they are going to get. The only thing they ask is that it be he right size to fit a bottle of innocent smoothie (a size guide is also on their website).
They even have a 'hat of the week' section with pictures of the most brilliant hats they have received. Check out some of the hats i found as 'hat of the week' when i had a nose on there (below). Amazing.

I'd better get the knitting needles out, there's little bottle somewhere that needs it's head keeping warm....
