Having written to Innocent, I was amazed to see I received a really lovely personal reply from them. Apparently we can still send in Woolly Hats to them before the end of November, so guys, GET KNITTING! If you want a simple hat pattern you can find it here on their website, or here for the more outrageous designs: pineapples, Homer Simpson, and xmas puds amongst other amazing ideas. It should only take a couple of hours to knit these tiny things, so if you can, please bring it to the next Knit Ting on Thursday, 19th November. Or if not, I guess 26th Nov at the latest, so that I can send them all of in a bundle as a present from Knit 'Ting.
    It was really super to be able to welcome 2 new knitters who braved the disgusting weather last week to join our group - many thanks to Jill and Sue for coming along - it was great to meet you!
    We proved our worth enough for Owen to reserve us an area each time now, so Knit 'Ting is really becoming established, hurrah!
   Hoping to see many of you there next time!
   
 
 
Hey fellow knitters,
I hope everyone enjoyed the fireworks last weekend. Pauline and I were particularly pleased, yet surprised to find a new knitter there waiting for us at the pub, happily knitting away in the corner on her own! Aah! I felt awful for not being there to welcome Grace our new member, but she wasn't to know about the fireworks.

Anyway, I'm really looking forward to getting the group underway again this Thursday 12th November as it's been a while and we were just gathering momentum!

One last thing - do check out my link to the Innocent Smoothie website as you may have seen the knitted bobble hats on their drinks in Sainsbury's - well it's all in aid of charity, and I'd love our group to get involved the Big Knit. I also have a Hatometer on my Homepage and in Links and Resources which shows how many thousands of hats have been knitted altogether!

Looking forward to seeing you lovely ladies (and maybe men!) on Thursday!.
 
 
Just a quick reminder that there is no Knit 'Ting tomorrow night due to the fireworks that nobody wants to miss. However, please do come along to The Empress afterwards for a pint or too - it would be lovely to see a few knitters there socially.
