My main virtuous activity this week has been knitting little hats for the Innocent - Supergran 2006 appeal. They ask you to knit (or crochet) wee hats for their smoothie drinks and for every bottle with a hat sold between November and Christmas they donate 50p to Age Concern. Look out for the little hats in Sainsbury's and Eat Cafe later in the year and if you want to get involved you can find the pattern and further details on their website.
I've made another dozen or so which I still need to sew up and put bobbles onto. I'm using these little scrappi-doos pompoms to save fiddling about trying to make my own. If you can't get any Innocent will either send you some or will sew them on for you if you send hats without them.
Other than that I've been making myself some Mrs Beetons, that's right - they're for me! They're not even in the yarn I'd planned, but this odd ball of mystery yarn in my stash has been calling to me...and it appears I'm not the only one who likes it.
I also bought some Patons Spirit to make more wristwarmers with (for me!) because I love wearing them and will gladly wear my bright green pair even though they don't match most of my clothes. I love this yarn, there's not a bad colourway in it and I was spoilt for choice. The grey/black is to go with a scarf I made last winter and the purple is just because I liked it. It reminds me of the flat purple swizzles lollies that I used to love when I was little and I could lick the yarn it's so lovely. Before you go round telling everyone I lick yarn, remember - it was that other girl... (sorry Rain).
