The Big Knit is Back!
This lovely charity project involves knitting (or crocheting) little hats for Innocent Smoothie bottles. Money is then donated to Age Action for every bottle sold. Its great fun and can be quite competitive - if you follow the Irish Big Knit group on Ravelry!
I took part in 2008 (it didn't happen in 2009, probably blamed on the recession). So today I received a letter from them in the post with details of this year's Big Knit and some cards with hat patterns on them. Its a really cool idea 'cause I can now bring those cards to the local knitting groups and build up a bit of interest.
So let the mini hat knitting commence!
