Nutty knitter update!

Following yesterday's post, where I let you all know about Save The Children's appeal for knitted baby hats, I decided to dig deep into my hall cupboard. I retrieved a bag of knitting bits and bobs, left over from a couple of abandoned projects. I'm no great fan of knitting, but occasionally make little things like cushion covers, etc. Anyway, I got my needles clicking last night, and within two hours or so, produced my first baby hat. I started a second one earlier today.

So, like I said yesterday, if any of you can knit, and fancy helping to save the lives of newborn babies in places like Tibet and Angola, please get those needles a-clicking. The pattern provided is so simple, even a beginner can follow it. And it's something you can do when watching the telly. Go on, give it a go!

P.S. Many thanks to Dragonstar and The Holistic Knitter for deciding to get their needles clicking for those babies. So far, that's three Welsh ladies, two in Wales, one in Ireland. We now need a few of you from other parts of the British Isles, to even up the score!

Well done for the baby hat!
And many thanks for the link, too.

No baby would want to be seen a hat I knitted! Great idea though. I'll mention it on my blog.

I must link to you too in my blogroll. And to several others that I have to go round the houses to get to!
