I made a load of little bobble hats last year - we were in the middle of a complicated move down to Deveon and refurb of our new house, so it was ideal to have something easy and very portable to knit. This year, I'm going to be more adventurous and make some of your patterns - they crack me up!

Hi! Thank you so much for rekindling my love of knitting. I just love these little projects which are quick to knit and look so cute. What a fab way to support Help The Aged. My new years resolution is to do more for others and this is a great way to have enjoyment at the same time. :)

Jo's comments   So glad you are back to enjoying your knitting. That is a bit like me - I'd not knitted properly for years until I started on the hats and now I'm doing other projects too. Enjoy and thank you for the message.

Wonderful hats. We have only just started knitting hats to send in. Very addictive!!! Lovely designs. Just seen lots for sale on ebay!! Not the idea really! Hope Help the Aged still get some money.
Happy Christmas

Jo's comments   Hi Nicola, Glad you've found the campaign and enjoy knitting hats ready for The Big Knit in 2014. Shame about the Ebay thing as I suspect there isn't a lot of the proceeds going to charity. Never mind - hopefully the bought hat will brighten someone's day. Season's Greetings to you too.
