Lots of Little Hats and a Few Little Facts

Little Hats
It's that time of year again. Innocent Smoothies will soon be hitting Sainsbury's wearing little hats made by knitters to raise money for Age Concern. 50p for each Innocent Smoothie sold with a hat goes to the charity to support initiatives aimed at helping the elderly keep warm in the winter.


I made 27 hats this year -- my target was higher but somehow the deadline just snuck up on me!

I know it's unlikely but I'd love to see one of my hats in the wild.

Little Facts
I was tagged by CiCi to list 6 boring yet quirky things about myself. Hmmmmm.....

1) I write in pencil 99% of the time. The only real exception is that I use ink when signing cheques or legal documents.

2) I don't have a driver's license.

3) I've always loved making things. When I was a kid my one of my favourite programmes was Mr Dressup -- but I only really liked the episodes where he made stuff. Scotch tape, a toilet roll and some markers and I was in heaven! More worryingly, I'm still riveted when I happen to stumble across the 'make' segment of a kids tv programme!!

4) I love sour/vinegary things, and in general believe that most anything is improved by pickling it in vinegar.

5) I apparently have a loud and distinctive laugh. When I was in my early 20's I denied this - but the fact that everyone commented on it finally convinced me that there might be some truth in it.

6) I like to knit.

I spotted one of your adorable hats sneaking through my tomato plants this morning :)

I agree with you about sour things...I do not, however, think ice cream would be improved by the addition of vinegar...

My, my. Those hats are cute.

Remembering Mr. Dressup makes me feel like being 4 again.

For those concerned about the truthfulness of these 'facts', I can personally vouch for the honesty of facts 1,5 and 6

Wow, Soo, I go along with 4 of the 6 (not sure who Mr Dressup is, and I don't think I'm pencil-obsessed)!

I think that having a loud and distinctive laugh is blinking-well brilliant! I reckon I have one too...

LittleBerry said...

love the hats especially the wee willie winky one ;o) and yes I am easily amused by self patterning yarn too....

not sure vinegar would improve everything but I love pickled onions and had rather a 'horrible habit as a child' ;o)

How I love those little hats! And I'm with you on the vinegar. My favorite snack is salt & vinegar chips. I can never get enough of them!

Soo's Sister said...

I also can confirm these quirks and details about Soo. I actually watched many of those Mr Dress Up shows with her, when we were young and cute!!

On another note curling season is upon us, I'm sure to get more comments on my super socks, thanks again, Soo!

Love ya, Kim

Little hats! They're so cute.

I didn't care much for the Dolce colors, but then I like my lace yarn bright bright bright!

Kristina said...

Soo, I'm with you on the vinegar front. Just ask my friends IRL who cringe when I shake the vinegar bottle on all sorts of things.

Very cute hats. Want to do any for my rubber duckies?

:)

Those hats are very cunning! It really would be fun to see one on the product in a store for sale :-)
