Over the past six years, the Irish public has knit an astonishing 390,000 little hats for the innocent Big Knit and has helped raise €120,000 for Age Action who help older people stay warm and well during the harsh conditions of our Irish winters.
Little hats, little film
To help raise awareness for the Big Knit 2015, we created a short film featuring four lovely knitters trying to navigate their way around today’s confusing maze of teen vernacular (that’s a big word). This ‘Gogglebox meets grannies’ fly-on-the-wall footage sees the two leading ladies try to get their heads around some phrases of our modern day ‘slanguage’(we made that word up). Everything from ‘swag’ to ‘squad goals’, turn up the LOL-ume (geddit?) and check it out- http://bit.ly/1Pkx9BS
From now until December 11th 2015, we’re calling out to veteran knitters and newcomers alike, to pull up a comfy chair, grab their knitting needles & wool and cast-on for this brilliant cause – and help keep older people well, warm and ‘on fleek’.
