A slight obsession with books

Crafts, cats and books

The big knit

12 Comments

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.

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

  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.
