We’ve been to Sainsbury’s with Auntie Jan to buy our Innocent Smoothies with the woolly hats on as part of “The Big Knit” …………..
……….. it took us ages to choose ours, and quite a queue built up behind us, which made other people wonder what was happening and what they were missing out on and before we knew it there was panic buying akimbo!
There are 650,000 little woolly hats all sitting on Innocent Smoothie bottles in Boots and Sainsbury’s throughout the land, but we think we got two of the best!
All of the hats have been knitted by real people and 25p per hatted bottle sold is donated to Age UK to help make winter a little warmer for older people across the UK.
And, how spooky and fortuitous ….. they are all a perfect fit for Nigel ……
……. so he is well set up for the winter …. and won’t be at any risk of losing heat through his head and becoming hypothermic!
We all agreed that Nigel does carry off a hat rather well and perhaps we should send his picture to Philip Treacy (hatmaker to the stars) in case he needs a new muse!We’ve also decided to learn how to knit in the New Year so that we can make some hats for 2012 ….. we’ve already found some patterns …it can’t be that difficult…. can it?
