I'm Innocent

You've probably seen it. It's sweeping the blogisphere. The knitting of tiny hats. What for you ask? Well check out the Big Knit over on the Innocent site. They are a UK beverage company and apparently they have an event every year where folks knit tiny little hats for their beverage bottles. For each bottle sold they will donate money to heat the elderly this winter. As first when I saw it I thought it was fairly nuts. But then I kept seeing these adorable little hats and finally this little buttercup hat of Jennifer's put me over the edge. I HAD to make some. What to start with? How can you ask that! I made this tiny Black Jack hat out of the left over Jasper yarn. Next came a minature Amanda hat, followed by a mock cable hat and then I made this rather odd party hat that looks more like an elf hat . . . . So if you care to join us break out the needles and make some hats. They take no time at all and are a great way to use up that spare yarn!



Also as a wonderful surprise this week the same Jennifer sent me a care package. Isn't she sweet? It had this gorgeous wash rag, cotton, patterns for dish rags, chocolate and these really cute dragonfly buttons. Thanks Jennifer - you're the best!
