The Big Knit - Innocent Smoothie Drinks

Long time regulars may remember me making these last November 2008. I discovered too late the chance to make these little hats for The Big Knit with Innocent Smoothie Drinks and send them off to help raise money for Age Concern and Help the Aged. I have kept them and I will send them off this year instead.

The link will take you directly to their web page where there are patterns for every level of knitter. You can also find a crochet pattern which they are also accepting here.

These fun little hats are quick to make and are ideal stash busting makes. The deadline for sending them is approx 16th October (so I very nearly missed it again!). The hats will then be added to the Innocent Drinks bottled ans sold in Sainsbury's. 35p form each sale then goes to charity.
The sending address can also be found on their website. You can also add your makes to a special Flickr group.
I am off to print out the patterns to make some more of these little cuties. Let me know if you have taken part before, how many did you make?

Adorable hats especially those fancy ones on the end. I'm going to have to learn to knit.

Thanks for the reminder! I've made these for the past couple of years but almost forgot this year. Still time to make a few though.

Gosh, I'd forgotten - thanks for the reminder. I have stash wool to use up.

Gorgeous little hats. They'd make nice little egg cosies too wouldn't they? It's good to think that they'll be helping make life better for someone too!
