Just a quickie this morning. I've had my weekly newsletter from Innocent (the people that make the scrummy smoothies) and they have announced the launch of The Big Knit 2008. This is their campiagn to raise funds and awareness for Age Concern. I only found it after last year's campaign had ended but this year I'm definitely going to play.
Click on the link to their website where there is loads of info and inspiration and even three knitting patterns, ranging from dead simple to more complex. I have NEVER knitted a shaped garment in my life but I managed to make a little hat from the simple pattern so ANYONE can do it. They are super quick to make too.
Innocent even set up a Flickr group and feature the "hats of the week". So get out your needles and scraps of wool and get playing. It's fab fun and for a good cause.
