This is my fourth year (or is it fifth?) of knitting little woolly hats for Innocent Smoothie bottles, to raise money for the charity AgeUK. I started knitting them in the middle of August and finished last week so that I could get them packaged up and posted to Innocent. Innocent will then arrange for them to be place on top of the smoothie bottles and sent off to be sold in Sainsbury’s supermarkets at the beginning of November. Each bottle sold with a hat raises 25p for the charity. When my mum came to stay in the summer she knitted about 20 (having not knitted anything for years, she really enjoyed it) and my daughter also contributed some. All together we made 146, which is brilliant.
Here they are in all their glory:
If you fancy giving it a go it’s too late for this year, but it’s never too early to get started for next year! Click on the Innocent website link at the top of the post for more information.
