Needles Out For The Innocent Big Knit

yarnThere’s no better reason for delving into your knitting bag than to do your bit for charity (and certainly no better reason to learn to knit in the first place!), so if you want to give a little bit back this year and use your talents for the greater good, get involved with the innocent Big Knit.

The drinks company teams up with Age UK every year (and has done so for the last decade, in fact), to knit up lots of tiny little woolly hats (3,000 in total!) to help raise money for the charity.

Each hat that is made is stuck over the lid of an innocent smoothie bottle and for every one sold, 25p is donated to Age UK, with the cash then going to help older people stay health and warm during the winter and the rest of the year.

What a brilliant campaign! We’ve seen all the little hats on bottles in shops at around this time of year in the past and can’t wait to get involved. (We’re going through our yarn stash right now, as we type!) If you want to join us and use your wonderful knitting skills for a truly worthy cause, you’ve got until November 10th to finish your hats and get them sent in.

You can find patterns at The Big Knit website, or you could also start designing your own patterns for people to use and share them on Twitter or Facebook. For each hat pattern that is shared, 10p will be donated to Age UK.

Lucy Sparrow's Felt Corner Shop

Felting activityThe arts and crafts community is a very inspired one and we’re constantly marvelling at the things you all get up to time and time again, but we’ve been particularly wowed by artist Lucy Sparrow, who this month decided to set up her own corner shop, with everything made from felt!

Those of you out there with a keen interest in buying crafty pressies for people should think about hotfooting it off to east London so you can check out the shop (although you’ll have to be quick about it as it’s only open for a few more days, shutting up on August 31st).

What a brilliant idea, although we’re sure it must have taken Lucy an absolute age to stitch together the 4,000 items that are currently on display. If you do make it to the store in time, you’ll find that everything is for sale, although don’t expect typical corner shop prices. A pint of milk will set you back the princely sum of £20!

Lucy’s art installation hasn’t just been about showing off her sewing skills and bringing craft and fine art together. There have also been community workshops put on to help people build up their social skills and also encourage them to think more about the demise of the once booming corner shop industry.

We can’t think of a better way of bringing local communities together than getting them all sat down working on something arts and crafty, can you? We’re very much looking forward to seeing what Lucy does next. We might not have felt products like hers in stock right now, but you’re sure to get a kick out of our tapestry cushion covers, so have a little look before you go.

King Of The Knitted Swingers!

There’s quite a lot of monkey business going on at the moment, with Richmond-based knitting group The Knitwits offering their skills and time to help raise money for local charity the Vineyard Community Centre by knitting lots of monkeys and other jungle creatures, and depositing them around Hill Rise.

Their chosen charity does valuable work in the local area, looking after people in crisis as well as managing the Richmond foodbank, so it’s a very worthy cause and one that certainly deserves as much support as it can get.

Guerrilla knitting – the typically anonymous act of placing handmade pieces in public spaces (also known as yarn bombing or yarn storming) – is growing in popularity, with all sorts of knitwear popping up in towns all over the UK, and indeed the world… so keep your eyes peeled as you make your way through life!

Pioneered by the amazing Magda Sayeg (who’s yarn bombed stairs, buses and statues in her time), this form of street art is capturing people’s imaginations everywhere and it’s not hard to see why. Because wool is biodegradable it’s great for people who want to take ownership of public spaces without getting in trouble or causing any damage, so watch out for yarn bombs on your way about town. Popular places include branches of trees and fences, although if you want to do it yourself check the wool content of your yarn as some types can actually damage the trees.

For further yarn bombing inspiration, check out the likes of Deadly Knitshade and Knit the City, who all very firmly believe in enhancing public spaces by adorning them with wool.

We may not have any guerrilla knitting artifacts in stock right now but you could have a look at some of our lovely tapestry cushion covers instead.
