I’ve just popped to the post office to send my small contribution to The Big Knit. Last year a few of my friends joined in but I didn’t have my knitty head on at all at that point. This week I decided to try the basic pattern and found it really fast with minimum sewing up, so I’ve made a few for the project.
The Big Knit raises money for Age UK. Take a look at The Big Knit site, linked above, there are some amazingly impressive hat designs! People are posting pics of their finished hats on Twitter using the #bigknit hashtag – if you want to see them.
The number of hats that Age UK are tweeting about receiving just today is incredible.
It’s too late to join now as the hats have to be received by Monday, but you can look out for a hat adorned smoothie to buy and contribute to the fundraising that way.
By the way The Mile of Mice fundraiser and record setting attempt in aid of The Alzheimer’s Society has achieved their goal of over 7,000 mice! The official measure and record setting will happen at the end of next month. I really love all the current charity crafting, it’s a really fun way to raise money and awareness of various charities.
