i fancy doing a hat or two, could i send them to you to add to your collection? does it have to be tame and sensible or can i do wild and wacky? thoguh not commiting myself to anything in particular just yet.

scratch that request, have just looked on the link map and i can take a whole shoebox to my local stead and simpson, so i hope it doesn't offend retracting an offer but i'll make up something locally-it'll all be going to the same cause
and i'll go and read the site properly

also can i recomend the website for anyone like me who doesn't have a regular charity that they like to join in with but just likes to do the occassional gift, there are lots off drop off points all over the country, boxes to be handed in 1st -18th November.

thanks for prompting me Kaz

Of course I don't mind that you are going to knit for your own box :clap:
Here is the glove puppet from the pattern links - it only took a few hours to do :P
