Hats for smoothies!

Posted by

I’ve done my bit.
6 hats for smoothies for Age UK.
I’m almost loath to part with them, they look so cute.
I’ve been wondering what I could adorn with these mini hats around the house; apart from boiled eggs!
My daughter made the pom poms.

    1. I love the idea, the money raised and the general awareness increased. It is good to see a company like Coca Cola (who own Innocent) support a UK cause but I hope it is more than a mere drop in the ocean for them.

  1. Love your hats they are so cute πŸ™‚ I have been knitting some myself and I plan on carry on knitting them as they have confirmed they are doing a Big Knit 2014 πŸ™‚ What size were your pom poms though? As I have really struggled to make mine small enough

    1. The pom poms are about 1.5 to 2cm across. We made them by wrapping the yarn around 2 fingers and then tying a piece of yarn around the middle, in between your 2 fingers. Pull the yarn off your fingers, then tie the yarn tighter. Then cut through the loops and trim to size. It was a 2 person job to tie the yarn tight enough for the Pom Pom not to fall apart.

      1. thank you so much πŸ™‚ I was trying the traditional way by making pom pom templates out of cardboard and what I thought was small was still too big but I shall give this a go πŸ™‚
