Big Knit 2014

While I’ve been off my feet I’ve taken the opportunity to use up some of my leftover yarn stash and make up some little hats for this years Big Knit.

This year they are quite simple designs with pom poms.

It’s been a great way of making something for a great cause and keeping my busy while I recuperate.

The Big Knit 2014

It’s that time of year again when Innocent launch their Big Knit in aid of Age UK.

As I’m currently sat with my feet up due to an operation, it’s the ideal time for me to knock out a few hats. This year I’m going for little bobble hats in a variety of colours and yarns.

This is an ideal project for any knitter and you can really make a difference. The hats are put onto bottles of Innocent smoothie and for every one sold, Innocent give 25p to Age UK. The hope is that this year they will have 800,000 little hats.

So get out those needles, there are patterns on the big knit website ( and have a go at raising some funds for a great charity.

Charity Hearts

In the latest issue of Craftseller magazine, there was a lovely little pattern for crochet hearts. I’ve wanted to make hearts for a while so it was lovely to see the pattern. I have had a go and made a few, so I am looking to sell them to raise some money for physio for my former work colleague.

Each heart will cost £2 with £1.50 going to fund some further physio and speech therapy sessions.

I can make them in any colour you would like and I will add them to a keyring or attach a brooch back.
