On the topic of Charity Knitting...The Big Knit is back!

The Big Knit is back for 2014. Needless to say, it's one of my favourite fund-raising campaigns, but as a knitter you may rightfully accuse me of partiality.

For all those, who are not familiar with the Big Knit, it's an established, large-scale,  fundraising campaign, which takes full advantage of the good nature, creativity and reliability of the knitting community. 

Innocent / Age UK, Big Knit 2014. 



The little hats on the Innocent bottles are hand-knitted works of art and I hope that everyone approaching the smoothie section of the supermarket shelf during the campaign purchases a bottle (or two) and gives a hand-knit of their choosing a loving home. Once a smoothie with hat is sold, £0.25 are donated to Age UK. All relatively straightforward, and the hard work is taken care of by the knitters. More on the Big Knit can be found here.
