that's right, hat of the week's back…

In case you hadn't heard, the Big Knit is back in action for 2011. This year we're aiming to collect 650,000 hats to raise £162,500 for Age UK. Altogether this will take our total amount raised through the Big Knit to over the £1m mark.

If you haven't heard about the Big Knit before, you can read all about it here.

And with the return of the Big Knit comes the return of hat of the week. Now you may remember a little fellow named Binface from last year. He was sent in to us from Vera Douglas of the Tilgate Drive Knitter Knatterers.
