I've just seen an advert.   Knit a hat for a smoothie bottle.  Smoothie people will donate 10p per hat up to  20,000 hats. Thats £2,000 for age  UK, at least £10,000 for Royal mail for 2nd class postage, and  how much (loads of  dosh) for TV advertising.

Cut out the middle man. Donate direct.

 saves time and effort knitting hats for egg cups.

Caterpillars galore!

They all pupate over winter. Next year they will be moths or butterflies, and your plants will start afresh.  its too late to worry about this year, the plants will be going dormant soon.

I'm confused. I've just seen an advert for the big knit. Innocent smoothies want people to knit a small hat and send it in,and they will donate 10p per hat to age uk.-- Up to a maximum of 20,000 hats.

By my reckoning thats £2000 to age uk. and at least  £10,000 to Royal Mail for  2nd class stamps. Not to mention the cost of advertising on tv.

Wouldn't it be better to donate  direct and cut out the middle man. Its not as if these hats will be of any use other than as  egg cosies. Even squares for blankets would be of more use as they could be made into blankets.
