Hi again - this morning I went into the Trowbridge (Wilts) branch of Age UK - they offered to take in my 300-odd hats and forward them - which will save a lot of postage on my behalf! Meanwhile a very good (and generous) friend came to stay recently, and bought five of my hats for 20!

Jo - thanks for posting my Pretty Women on your site. Might have a week or so off now before starting on next year's effort - and let my wrists recover! Best wishes to all knitters - Maureen White, Freshford, Bath.

Hey Jo,
Thanks for posting so many amazing patterns for the big knit, I'm enjoying the variety and have made about 50 hats so far.
I have a quick question, I'm in the middle of knitting the Leprechaun Hat and just wondering on the last decreasing row of the brim, it doesn't say how many knits in between the k2tog, not sure if its just k1 but thought I would ask :)
thank you again for all the patterns

Jo's comments   Hi There, the instructions that you repeat are in the brackets; so for (K2tog, K) repeat to end. It is Knit 2 together, then Knit 1, Knit 2 together and then Knit 1 and repeat this to the end. Glad you are enjoying the patterns, there are a nice range on here now. Happy Hatting and thanks for your message. Jo

Hi knitters! This week several of us mature ladies in Freshford, near Bath, went along to a Brownie meeting and tried to teach the girls how to knit little hats - the 7-year-olds found it really difficult, but older Brownies managed well. Meanwhile my own tally to date is over 300 little hats.

A thought for you all - don't throw away all the odd yards or two of yarn. Just knit away, and when you run out of one colour, bring in another - preferably in the middle of a row so you can see the contrast - and tie the ends on the wrong side to save time. Mine have worked out amazingly well!

I am a Rotarian, and our charity this year is Age UK, so it all ties up well (no pun intended).

Jo's comments   Glad you are enjoying knitting hats and that the skill of knitting is being passed on to the next generation. Keep it up.
