TFI Friday

It's felt like a really long week this week, and I don't feel like I have made a huge amount of knitting progress (although the blanket does keep growing!). So I'm pretty pleased it is Friday!

Plus, I do have something to share for Finished Object/Fibers on Friday... I made more smoothie hats *grins*


I posted about them before, they are for Innocent Smoothies' Big Knit campaign and are a truly excellent way to use up some scraps of yarn for the benefit of a good cause. They take no time at all to knit (making them an excellent FO Friday project *laughs*) and you can be as creative as you like. These 3 use up some of the little balls of yarn I was given by a colleague that weren't enough to make anything else with.

Anyway, as they look a little weird just as blobs, here they are being modelled beautifully by an empty smoothie bottle *laughs* Taken on different days, so please excuse the colour/composition changes ;)


As ever, you know the Friday drill... head over to Tami's, Natural Suburbia and Wisdom Begins in Wonder for more crafty and fibery loveliness. Have a great weekend :)

  1. Cute hats. I learnt to knit because of the innocent big knit campaign, what a slippery slope that was! :D

  2. When you have nothing else to show, pull out the smoothie hats! Yours look great, I really should get a start on knitting some!

  7. It's for such a good cause and it really is a great way to use up scraps! Nice to see them modeled on an actual smoothie bottle!

  8. I love this idea, so clever. Keep them coming. I'm sure they take so quick to make as well as so little yarn.

  11. So cute! Thanks for the reminder as well, I mean to make these every year, and every year I end up missing the deadline! I'll have to seek out some of my scraps this weekend :)

  12. Too cute, I especially like the center/ribbed one. I'm so envious of how well ribbing works up in knit, crochet just doesn't work the same way. I wish postage to the UK weren't so expensive, I'd make some of these up, I think it's such a cool idea!

  13. Those are so cute!! The ribbed ones are especially fabulous!
    I bet they make a fantastic instant-gratification kind of project. :)

  14. Cute little hats. I need a hat for my coffee cup, to keep the houseflies from using it as a hot tub. Yuck!
