Look What I Found!!!

An Innocent Smoothie bottle! ! !

Last year, when I was making hats for these bottles, I couldn't find one anywhere out here in this part of France.  Eventually a friend sent me one and I was able to try all the little hats on that...


...but yesterday, in the Hyper U in St Junien I found two little smoothie bottles in the 'sandwiches' section - Kiwi, Apple and Pineapple and Strawberry and Banana!  Of course, I had to drink one with my lunch...


...and it was yummy!

So now I can start making the little bottle hats any time and just pile them up ready to send at the end of the year.  Mine go here, and the end date for their acceptance will be some time in December this year - last year was the 15th...

Evry hat knitted and sold on a bottle in the participating stores raises 25p for Age Concern in the UK or 20€ for a similar charity in France...


So, when I've finished these socks for Dan...


...I'll use any left-over yarn for a little Innocent hat.

Memories came flooding back at the mention of St Junien which was where we used to live! Glad you have a model for your hats now!

I was wondering how much they raised last year. I'll start again soon, I loved knitting tiny hats!

Funnily enough the only Innocent Smoothie hat I have ever seen, is in a service station south of Calais. Never seen one in the UK. Keep up the good work.
