The innocent big knit

Some of you may have seen the innocent smoothie hats previously, well, they are back!! You can visit and knit your own. 

This is my first hat which I will be sending along with others, more photographs to come soon. I'd love to hear about and see your innocent smoothie hats, leave a comment with a link to your blog. 

The following statement is taken directly from the innocent big knit website (10/10/13)
As many as 24,000 older people die needlessly because of the cold every winter. Many others spend the time lonely and isolated, unable to heat their homes and struggling to get out and about.
So ten years ago we had an idea. We asked some older people, and some younger people, to knit little woolly hats. We put those hats on our smoothies, and for each one sold we made a donation to Age UK.
For each behatted smoothie bottle we sell, we give 25p to Age UK to spend on things like hot water bottles, blankets, hot meals and social gatherings. Many older people also knit hats themselves through knitting groups organised by Age UK. The impact of the knitting groups is incredible and for some, they're a real lifeline.
