hat of the week 3: Vera’s Auntie Dot vs. Kerry’s Mexican Wrestling mask

We’ve got more woollen wonders for you this week and we’d like you to help us decide which is our Hat of the Week. Will it be Vera’s Auntie Dot with her luscious lipstick and a flower in her hair? Or does Kerry’s marvellous Mexican Wrestling mask lay a smackdown on your heart? Only you can decide.

hat of the week 1: dessert or a healthy option?

As ever, we’ve received some incredible needlework for this year’s Big Knit and we need your help to decide which of these woollen wonders is our Hat of the Week. Leave a comment to cast your vote. Will it be Emma’s apple or Sue’s ice cream? Only you can decide.

the hats have arrived

Thanks so much to all who sent their woolly creations to us here at fruit towers, plus of course to those who sent them via our friends at Age UK. We were momentarily swamped, with not a bit of astroturf to be seen on floor two. Thanks to our crack unit of hat unpackers we are now in good shape, with hats ready to be put on bottles and the most intricate and wonderful hats ready to fight it out for the title of hat of the week. 

There was much unpacking and cooing at the consistently amazing needlework sent in to us.

And we even received packages from the USA and Australia - the Big Knit's gone global. Thanks again to all who knitted for us, we're constantly amazed by how brilliant your hats are. And for all of you looking to get your hands on one, our little be-hatted bottles will be in Sainsbury's from the 21st of November.
