A slight obsession with books

Crafts, cats and books

The big knit


I’ve finished making little hats and have delivered them to my local Age UK store. Look how many I made!

I’m really chuffed with how many I got done and I’ve really enjoyed making them. The last lot were all just more bobble hats, sun hats etc, so rather than showing you them, I thought I’d do a round up of the lot.

There were 7 ducks

18 elephants 4 fantasy creatures 12 assorted creatures including a few mystery creatures ๐Ÿ˜‰ There were 49 sun hats

And 114 bobble hats, (one if which snuck into the sun hat photo).

The grand total was 204 which I’m rather chuffed with, especially as I was originally aiming for 50. I’m very keen to crochet something a bit bigger now though. I just need to pick which of my WIPs I carry on with. Definitely no new starts until they’re finished.

  2. Wow! You sure did make a lot of them. They are all so cute. Love the little ducks. You are so creative.


  3. That must have been a lot of work. What is an Age store? Is that a charity?


  4. This is quite a crop of little hats for the charity, and all your odd bits used up too! Well done Carole!


  5. brilliant !!! if I understand correctly, when these are popped on smoothie bottles and sold, that means ยฃ204 to charity?


    • Sadly no. Age UK gets 25p for each one sold so ยฃ51. Still not a bad result though and there are hundreds of us (probably thousands) all crocheting and knitting away so the charity should get a LOT of money.


  6. well done ๐Ÿ™‚ Enjoy the big things now, and good luck with the no new starts…
