Calling all knitters and Crocheters......

Innocent have launched their yearly Big Knit campaigne

Each behatted bottle they sell, they give 25p to Age UK to spend on things like hot water bottles, blankets and hot meals for the elderly.

They have extended the deadline. All you have to do is knit one, two, or however many you want.....pop them in an envelope and send to their headquarters.

The deadline has been extended until 31st October

It's a worthy cause. We will all get there some day, and may be gratetful of knitters and crocheters like us who can do their little bit to help.

Pop on over to their website

They have a patterns page for knitters and crocheters to help give you some ideas if you want fancy hats, but also patterns for simple plain ones too.

So, if you have any odds and ends of yarn that you don't know what to do with and don't want to throw away, then this is the perfect little project to use your odds and ends up. They take minutes to make and can really help.
