150 Little hats...

...will be winging their way to join the BIG knit.

From 11 May 2017 until Friday 14 July 2017 our Craft & Chatter group have produced 150 mini hats for 'innocent smoothies' to place on their bottles this Autumn.

This was the colourful heap that I turned out onto the table...
...so that I could count what we had made.
I even managed to add a  "4th of July" hat...
 ...actually knitted on the 4th of July.
Just look at all these pretty colours...
 ...don't they look cheerful.
"Ollie" octopus managed to join the collection...
...just in time for the big send off.

This batch will be heading off later this week to add to the ones donated by folk all around the country - here's hoping that the target of 2 million hats has been reached/exceeded.

As a group we have decided to continue with these fun little knits so that we can see just how many we can have ready for next year's event.

These little hats don't take long to knit and help to use up all those little bits of yarn that we crafters can never throw away (although I admit I did buy some more yarn when some pretty colours took my eye LOL). So I'd better keep those needles handy and busy - perhaps we can manage two boxes full by next year...................................................

Well done Toni, that's amazing. I don't knit but I crochet and am happy to save my odds and ends of yarn for you to use to make more of these little hats. xx

omword are these ever the cutest! i've never seen that before! but then, there are no babies around.

summer is here and the weather has been a mixed bag. hot, humid, cool, rain - you know - typical LOL

have a great week. i ALWAYS look forward to your visits on my blog! with FB it seems traffic on the blogs have become nil. guess that's a good thing. we really do get to "connect" more with people on facebook. such is life!

hugs :)
