You may remember me posting about making hats for Innocent Smoothies, as part of their Big Knit campaign - where they add wooly hats to the smoothies and donate money from each one sold to Age UK, to help keep elderly people warm in winter...

Well, I was quite excited to spot some behatted smoothies "in the wild" as it were, while shopping recently:

Obviously, I didn't spot any of the ones that I made (not that I would ever expect to!) but I was really pleased to see them out there. It was just a shame they didn't have any of the flavour I like, or I'd have bought one *laughs*

After I posted my hats off, a few weeks later I got a lovely card from Innocent to say thank you - which was a really lovely touch. I didn't make as many as I would have liked (I forgot when the deadline was!) but I hope they do it again next year so I can make lots more *smiles*

As a reminder, here are a few of the ones I made :)


  1. love the one in the middle! Adorable!

  2. Every year I mean to make some hats, and every year I forget - I think I get put off by the 'big KNIT' when I'll be crocheting, and by the time I've got over being miffed, it's too late to make anything ;D

    I think the white with the blue bobbles is my favourite of these. I love seeing the be-hatted smoothies out in the wild. They're so cute!

  3. How cute! I love that you were able to spot some "in the wild" lol

  4. Those are so cute! What a nice way to raise money.

  5. Too adorable! I love the ones you made. What a creative way to make the money!

  6. They are darling! What a cute idea to raise money.


Hi, thanks for letting me know you stopped by :D
