Charity Knitting Spotlight, part 1 which I natter on about the why and for whom of knitting for charities...

Behold the tiny hat with big plans to keep older Brits warm in the winter!


Reasons to knit for charity, 1-3:
1. As Scrooge's partner Marley said, "Mankind was my business. The common welfare was my business; charity, mercy, forbearance, and benevolence were all my business." Or, in other words, if we're put here to help our fellow men, women and children, then why not knit for them?
2. Small projects like the Big Knit tiny hats don't take much time or yarn, but can be really fun.
3. Charity knitting like the Big Knit encourage the spread of knitting know-how.
