The Big Knit In Tinahely

Innocent Smoothies Big Knit by Irene Lundgaard - Robert making pom pomWe had a blast of a cultural weekend here in Tinahely. There was much celebration of Culture Night, with all sorts of activities. The Courthouse Arts Centre dished out some good concerts too and the Tinahely Arts Group were delighted to have our Arts & Craft Shop in the barn of The Farm Shop yesterday where Phillip and Rebecca had played a blinder preparing for us.

I had a Big Knit stall and some 80 hats were churned out on the day – every little helps.

Ruth came to the final September class with her first ever crochet hats for The Big Knit. They are so cute!

You can participate in The Big Knit in aid of Age Action Ireland too, check it out.

Smooth & Juicy

I finally got around to actually making some wee hats for the Innocence Smoothie campaign in aid of Age Action Ireland. The campaign is called The Big Knit, however, in usual rouge style, I went ahead and made some juicy fruits with my hook. I even included a couple of strawberries with yoghurt in true smoothie style.

I’m thinking I perhaps should add a bit of yoghurt to all of the fruits. Come to think of it, perhaps I should take the yoghurt off the strawberries… What do you think?
