Little Wooly Hats - on the shelves now!

Yuk. The NBM and I both have the lergie. However, the situation is not all bad: the plus side is that I've spent my day sitting on the sofa in my pyjamas, knitting and watching soothing telly (Columbo, mainly. I love him!)

Anyhoo, the upshot is that I don't have much to blog about, so I thought I'd just post this pic that I made the NBM snap with her phone while we were in the Sains, earlier this week:

Cosy-headed smoothie bottles

Nearly 400,000 little wooly hats have been made for The Big Knit, and these are now in the shops, adorning every chilly little bottle of Innocent smoothie! It's a happy win-win situation: the bottles are toasty-warm, and Age Concern get 50p for every hatted bottle sold.

Oooh, AND, there's an added advantage: if the purchasing customer happens to have a very small monkey with a chilly head, they can recycle the hat afterwards for monkey-noggin warming purposes. Hypothetically speaking, you understand.

Ugh, I feel ill. Time to head back to the sofa.

So cool! And well done you for contributing to it :)

Two things though ....

I clicked on the picture to make it bigger, and I note that TWO hats have been put on the shelf!! What does that tell you about Innocent drinkers??

And I'm sorry you're both ill and I hope you'll feel better tomorrow.

... it wasn't too much chocolate cake was it?

Sorry you two are feeling poorly. Hope a little knitting therapy and Columbo (I love him, too) help!

You can't go wrong watching 'Columbo' when feeling yucky. It is the first thing CK looks for when confined to the couch with a terminal dose of man-flu.

Hope y'all are better soon.
