Angles are Attitudes*

Just a quick FO post today, as I haven't finished anything from my WIP pile yet ;)


More Smoothie Hats *grins*

I have posted about the Innocent Big Knit before (at the end of the post), but in summary - Innocent Smoothies have a charity drive where knitters produce little wooly hats for their smoothies. Each be-hatted drink that is bought donates 25p to Age UK to help keep older people warm in winter.

Obviously it's a good cause, and the little hats are quick and fun to make. Some people go crazy with it and create the most amazing and bizarre hats. As you can see, I have stuck with simple ones *smiles*

The first one in the picture was actually my attempt at a crochet hat, which isn't perfect but was extra quick to make. The 4th one is some wonderfully fluffy blue yarn, snowflake type I think. It was gifted to me by a colleague and seemed perfect for a smoothie hat - although I think it needs little googly eyes - it reminds me of a creature from Sesame Street or something *laughs*

My favourite is the most relatively simple one though:


But it's orange, so of course it is my favourite ;)

And, being Friday, you know the drill: head over to Natural SuburbiaTami's, Wisdom Begins in Wonder and Plumslife. Have a great weekend all :)


ps, blogger seems to be having a bit of an issue with commenting on here yesterday/today, so I've changed the comment box to a pop up and you might need to click the "post comment" button a couple of times to get it to show up, sorry about that!

  2. You know, even though I knit, I can't help but want those. They are fun and a great way to raise money for a fundraiser.

  7. I've heard about the smoothie hats but never realised how the scheme worked. Can you purchase a hatted bottle in the shops? Glad I clicked on your link as I finally found the pics of your finished clapotis (missed it at the time). An amazing knit and I hope you have had further wear out of it xx

  16. What a great idea!
    I live in Australia where we are heading towards summer, but we are having some perfectly melbournesque spring weather right now...rainy and cold in the middle of spring.
    I'm an aged carer, so I get really concerned when I enter a clients house and it is freezing. I'll have to look into something like this for melbourne next winter...

  20. These remind me of the strawberry bottle little cover that my friend got when she bought a bottle of something from Boots :) Which is possibly related to the charity that you mention, as I remember it being charity related.

    I must say all of yours are looking adorable! My favourite one is the same as your favourite :) so bright and cute :)
