Have you seen those little bobble hats on Innocent Smoothie bottles in November & December each year? They're knitted by all sorts of people (particularly Grans!) to raise money for "AgeUK" in your locality. Fun to do and help others as we knit. Could we try to gear up all of us Gransnetters to swell the numbers knitted and money raised this year? Visit The Big Knit 2011. How many could we all knit collectively?

Read about this project in local paper.Got pattern online and have now got 7 cute hats lined up .Devising new colour schemes /patterns is becoming addictive. Good way of using up all those leftover bits of wool
