Big excuse to knit small

dog big knit hat innocent drinkMiniature knits are always fun. The joy of finishing a whole project in less than a couple of hours, cannot be underestimated. Especially when garments usually take weeks. No, a small knitted something, falling off the needles, is undoubtedly rewarding.animal big knit hats innocent drink

Also not to be underestimated, is the fun of seeing the children find my latest, new, miniature woolly creation. {squeal}blueberry Innocent drink mini hats group

So the Innocents Drink’s Big Knit project was just too much of a big excuse to knit small.It promised to use up some of my odd ends. A chance to be creative. And even better, help raise some money for a good cause, Age UK.

In my mind, I’d hoped I would knit 30 – one for every day of the month, but in the end I knitted 13 mini hats. Still good. I’ll package these hats up and send them off in the next few days. Giving them enough time to reach Age UK before the deadline.rabbit kangaroo big knit hatMy favourite? I don’t have one. They were each my favourite, whilst I was knitting them.

Partly as I’m quite pleased that I worked out how to do the ears, without resorting to sewing them on. At some point I’ll post it up here. Mainly as I know I’ll have mislaid my piece of paper with it all noted down on, before next year. Only to discover it a month later. It is … inevitable.

      No, not alone. Mine usually turn up several months later, if not years.

    The dog is my favourite too. Will have to keep an eye out for the Innocent Smoothies!

      I always seem to miss them. Only once saw a handful left on a shelf. Hopefully this means that they are very popular. Go little puppy. Go!
