Hello Darning Needle!

5 Sep

After searching for some time, I finally found my darning needle! It was tucked away somewhere safe, fortunately, but next time, I think I’ll put it somewhere more obvious…

Anyway, the discovery of the darning needle has meant that I could finish off my first hat for the Innocent Big Knit 2013! Here it is:

Innocent Big Knit Hat #1

I wanted to make it pastel pink and black to match the blog’s theme, but I didn’t have any black wool, so I settled for dark brown instead. I’m still pretty pleased with how it turned out, though.

Innocent Big Knit 2013 For Age UK

2 Sep

Innocent’s Big Knit 2013 has begun! I’ve been looking forward to it for a year now, after realising that the hats on the Innocent smoothie bottles are send in by fellow home-knitters. 25p per ‘hat bottle’ sold goes to Age UK, a charity which helps the older generation. This particular project aims to raise fund for winter help schemes, such as lunch clubs and home visits. The deadline for sending in hats is the 1st of October, so I’ve got a month to make as many as I can. My target is 5, because I’m back at school this month, but hopefully I’ll find the time to exceed my goal.

If you haven’t yet seen the Innocent Big Knit, I suggest that you have a look because the money raised is put towards a good cause, and because it’s an excuse to knit some pretty cool mini hats. If you’re interested in joining in, more information can be found on Innocent’s website, here:

I’ll keep you updated with this project over September. Let me know if you’re taking part as well, and I’ll link to your blog/site in a future post!

Happy knitting,
