This year I knit some hat for the Innocent Smoothies Big Knit campaign. These were knit and sent off before I went on holiday and I snapped come pictures to share the mini hat goodness. I used sock yarn leftovers to knit these, they’re mostly Regia but there is also some Opal and some King Cole Zig Zag in there as well as some very bright, very squeaky, very cheap pink and green acrylic! I was a little sad to let the scraps of sock yarn go but I have no real intention of knitting a sock yarn blanket so what else was I going to do with it? Now it’s going to help make money for charity and that’s always a good thing in my book.
I think my pompom making skills need practice but I’m a bit lazy and had so many to do so didn’t put a great deal of time into them. Not every hat got a pompom but I don't think it matters too much. I think I’d better make a start now on knitting for next year’s big knit!
I hope to do a post over the weekend showing how I chose to celebrate wool week, trust me you want to see it! Mmmm my yarn diet may have gone out of the window for a moment there!
