Isn't this just the cutest hat, or rather hoodie hat, you've ever seen? In fact, it may well be the first hoodie hat you've ever seen. But that's okay. It's still pretty darn special. We think this week's hat of the week is an early contender for hat of the year. I've been parading it around the office since it's arrival, to many an 'ooh' and 'aah' of delight. I mean, just look at how happy that bottle looks, all snug and warm and hooded. Great work Rachel Phillips. You sure know how to knit a good hoodie hat.

hat's the way, uh-huh uh-huh, we like it

Here I am, swimming in hats. Well, not exactly swimming, more lying down on a sofa covered in hats really, but swimming sounded better.


The hats you can see here have all been knitted by one amazing lady, Hazel Mummery, who swung by our office yesterday to drop them off. She has knitted an amazing 785 hats for our Big Knit, and was giving herself a well deserved night off with a trip to the theatre to see Monty Python's Spamalot. Hazel thought of her herculean knitting effort as "nothing really," and was too shy to have her picture taken, but was more than happy for me to make a fool out of myself with her hats.

Hazel, you're truly a star, and we can't begin to tell you how grateful we are for what you've done. The same goes for everyone who has knitted a hat so far - you're all brilliant.
