The Big Knit – Charity Knitting Needs You!

Do you have drawers full of bits of DK yarn left over? I do. And now I know how to use some of it up.

Age UK are running their Big Knit event again this year where they are hoping that people will donate over 1,000,000 teeny wooly hats. Err… Why?

Well, Innocent Smoothie are going to adorn their bottles with them and for each one that is sold, they’ll donate 25p to Age UK for their Spread The Warmth campaign. I may be a little cynical, but this is an excellent marketing ploy for Innocent and what will become of all those tiny hats? I suppose, Barbie may well be getting a new winter wardrobe! But 25p is 25p.
