Hiya Julie

Oh Dear - just can't imagine what he's on about at all. I mean, it's not as if you're noisy or talkative - quite the shrinking violet, in fact.

Cunning stunt though, must try it myself but on second thoughts, nah, maybe not - I'd only get Mrs Bucket next door wanting me to dust her roof!

Best Wishes

Ellie

Hi Jen

Wow - I'm really sorry - that sounds like you're still suffering quite a bit; I do hope you start feeling better very soon.Please let me know how you're getting on.

All Best Wishes

Ellie

Rita it's lovely to see that hat finished. It's no wonder you've made so many with your speedy way of knitting.

I finished the hat I started with you, then made another one. It was nice to finish a project so quickly. Hope you like them, they are very plain but they will do for my first attempt at baby knitting.

Hmm -"Curiouser and curiouser." said Limey.

I've just updated the top of the thread with the latest from Save the Children, who are desperately seeking more knitters.

Link here with latest info. and more adorable photos.

http://www.savethechildren.org.uk/en/5072_5584.htm


So far, 300,000 hats have been knitted by 25,000 knitters - only half the total of knitters that Save the Children want to become involved; so if you could please, bend a couple of ears about the appeal - the hats are such small items that even people who confuse needles with chopsticks could knock one out in a short space of time.

THANK YOU EVERYONE WHO IS TAKING PART - ALL THE HATS THAT HAVE BEEN MADE ARE ABSOLUTELY LOVELY

If you can spare a minute, have a look at the hat gallery - I keep having a peep to see if any of ours are there.

http://www.savethechildren.org.uk/en/5417.htm

I love the little motif that Mary, from Essex, knitted.


Best Wishes

Ellie

"The hats can be knitted in any colour you like, except white "

Could someone help with a question? I have white yarn with flecks of blue and green in it, would this be okay or should I leave it? I have a few odd balls of sport weight mooching around doing nothing so thought I'd join in. Wanted to check about the colour first, don't want to get it wrong.

Hopefully I'll be able to knit some up quick, do I have to use the pattern on the site or will any newborn hat do?

Looking forward to joining in the fun, assuming I get it that is.

Hi CherryBlossom ,
The speckled yarn is fine to use . It is only all white that is not needed.
You can also use any newborn pattern you like . You are not limited to using the pattern on the website .

As you can see by all the different hats that everyone has made here. Feel free to express yourself

Hiya

Thank you very much for wanting to join the campaign - every little hat counts!

There's just a couple of things I'd liketo point out, if that's ok.

Have you seen the flecked yarn knitted up into something or have you seen it as a skein or ball? I'm just concerned that when it's knitted up that the overall colour might be a bit too predominently white, depending on the size of the fleck.

To get round this, you might like to knit the hat brim in a contrasting colour, then knit the body of the hat with the flecked yarn and finish off the top of the hat with about 6 or 8 rounds of the same yarn you used for the brim.

It doesn't matter which pattern you choose to make the hat - the pattern published by the charity was for British beginners - I think most people starting off knitting over here go for the two straight sticks, rather than circular needles and knitting in-the-round.

The campaign is aimed at UK politicians and the hats, as well as providing essential warmth to newborns, are being used as a form of petition to the Prime Minister and government. Each little hat or batch of hats has a tag attached, giving the donor's name and UK address and telling politicians why they should get their act together and try to alleviate child poverty.

If you would like to post your hat directly to Save the Children in London, that's fine but if you would like to put your name to the petition by printing out and completing the tag, then please just send me a PM and I'll be happy to give you more details and info.

Many thanks again for wanting to contribute.

All Best Wishes

Ellie
