Big Knit

My lazy Sunday finished with an evening in front of the fire with some knitting. Innocent Drinks are running a campaign called "Big Knit" where people are invited to knit hats for Innocent Smoothies. For every Smoothie sold wearing a hat, during November, Innocent and Sainsburys will donate 50p to Age Concern. You can read all about the campaign here, where there are even knitting patterns. It appeals to my sense of the ridiculous... little bottles wearing hats to keep warm in the fridge... so these were my first couple of attempts...


And then I got ambitious and produced these... definitely going for the "hat of the week" award!



Here they all are ready to send off to Innocent by the end of this month. My family think I'm the Big Nit around here!



A slightly more productive day today preparing samples and a lesson plan for the second meeting of our embroidery group on Wednesday (we might have a name this week). We also had a challenge for October to choose our favourite colour, then take the colour opposite that on the colour wheel and make an ATC in the second colour. I couldn't really choose my favourite colour but decided that yellow is the colour I use least... so here is my yellow ATC. Lots of cable stitch on tyvek, zapped and stitched to a yellow background. They are all going into a group swap so on Wednesday I should come home with a different one!
