Hi there, I just wanted to say a huge thank you from the Big Knit team at Age UK. Your patterns are so good and we've been getting lots of hats like these in the post! There's still time to get your hats in, you can send them straight to us at The Big Knit, Age UK, Tavis House, 1-6 Tavistock Square, London WC1H 9NA. Thanks so much for inspiring lots of Big Knitters!

Jo's comments   Thank you Hannah. Glad to hear that you are receiving hats knitted with the patterns on my site! Hope the campaign is going well for you all. Happy unpacking of all those parcels!

Just finishing off one of the looks funny.not quite as good as yours, but hey I tried. Have enjoyed trying some of your designs this time around, as well as my normal stripey hats. As always a lot of fun to do.

Jo's comments   All my cactus turned out differently - part of the fun of this design. Glad you enjoyed making one of your own!

These are amazing. Love the cacti!! I've shared them hope that's ok. Wish more kids had the patience to knit as I'd run an after school club with these.

Jo's comments   Thanks Liv, glad you like them. I too work in a school and had wondered about a club - but that is as far as it got 'a wonder'. I then thought about all the dropped stitches!

Hi Jo. Sorry I didn't make myself clear in my last post.
I can, "make them up" by sewing them (although I prefer 4 or 5 needles to prevent this as I hate sewing up!!!) I meant I'm not clever enough to make up the patterns!!
As I can't explain myself very well you will understand what I mean!
I have just copied a lot of the patterns to give them a go. I knitted the wee skates last night. I made a pretty good job of them, though I do say so myself! I used four strands of sliver crochet thread to knit the 'blades'. It worked remarkably well!
I don't think my efforts will be good enough to send to Innocent so I'm going to make a donation to Age UK instead. I hope this is acceptable to you. I'm going to hang the wee hats on a small artificial Christmas Tree in my kitchen! Mamie x

Jo's comments   Hi Marnie - I get you now. What a good idea knitting the skates with silver thread - I bet that looked really good.
Innocent accept any hats - every single one is worth 25p to them regardless of what they look like - send them in. They are after a huge number this year - 1 million and your hats may make all the difference. Be proud of them. X

Very, very clever and sooo funny! I'm going to give some of these a try.
Thank you for being so generous with your patterns. I can knit them but am not clever enough to make them up myself!
I got the link to your patterns from Age UK.
Keep up the good work.

Jo's comments   Hi Marnie - glad you like the patterns and I hope you find someone willing to do the sewing up for you. Happy Knitting,
