Last week, Pigtail Penny and Sunshine Sheila did battle for the coveted title of Big Knit Hat of the Week.
Sunshine Sheila donned the yellow sunflower hat and using the broad rim and glowing centre, shone like the Sun from her side of the ring. On the otherside, Pigtail Penny, with her lustrous brown locks and twinkling blue eyes, pulled out some street style drop kicks and the odd half nelson here and there. The crowd were going wild, Penny and Sheila were locking hats until suddenley, Pigtail Penny went for the upper cut straight into the roundhouse move and whupped Sunshine Sheila into next Tuesday.
Congratulations to her trainer, Hazel from Watford, for helping Penny win the Hat of the Week. A case of delicious smoothies are winging their merry way to you right now.

Last week we officially reinstated the thrilling 'Hat of the Week' competition. Each and every week we'll select the crème of the woolly hatted crop and ask you to vote for your . Sort of like X Factor but without the premium rate phone calls. The winning hat will then take pride of place on the plinth in reception and the proud knitter will win a case of our finest drinks. Maybe there'll be some sort of grand hat-off in November. Who knows where it'll take us?
Going head to head last week we had the Virtual Insanity
Jamiroquai inspired hat from Alison of the 'Priddy Purlers' and the
'Majestic Mouse' from Mrs Joan Lockett. Who was first to the claim
the coveted spot upon the plinth of purlfection? The crowd holds
its breath. Presenting the winner of 2009's first Hat of the Week
competition... 'Majestic Mouse'.
Well done Mrs Lockett. A case of our finest is on its way to you as we speak. To vote on this weeks entries just click here. Dust off your needles and grab the nearest sheep. It's time to start knitting.
