the big knit 2010

The producers of innocent smoothies have organised another BIG KNIT this year.

The challenge is to knit 800,000 little hats (to be put on the smoothies bottles).

For every behatted bottle sold, 25p will be donated to Age UK.

There are some fabulous contributions. Patterns can be downloaded from the BIG KNIT website or own patterns can be used.

The deadline is the 5th of October - so it's not too late to get those knitting needles out!

Snail tea cosy

I made this snail tea cosy for a competition for the Marie Curie Cancer charity

More information on my Ravelry site, and the pattern is now for sale here.

Another foodie project ...

... this time a fruit and veg theme.

With little else to knit during the summer I am knitting a collection of fruit and vegetables for our harvest festival.

The patterns are picked from various patterns on ravelry, and so far I am very pleased with how realistic they look!

I am hoping to ask people to help themselves to a knitted piece of fruit or veg, with any donations given to charity.
