We'd like to share these hats with you. Whilst we took the opportunity to feel decidedly smug, it was a poignant reminder for our Mike (who's helping to open the hats and just happens to be Australian)...fingers crossed for the big one. bkc
"...London is not the best place to live for an Australian when you are beaten by England in the rugby world cup. I had hoped that I and everyone else could quickly forget about this aberration and we could all get on with our lives sledge free. But alas, this is not the case. With England going on to beat their sworn enemies in France, the impending final is a hot topic for conversation by the smoothie fridge at Fruit Towers.
I thought it timely then to show you one of my favourite groups of hats to pass by my eager eyes, a world cup special, knitted by Jane C from Sainsbury's Braintree in Essex. A very topical submission to the Big Knit, and one of my favourites.
There’s only a few days left to submit your hats, and I would really like to work some overtime next week to pay my co-workers for some bets that I may have lost on the aforementioned match, so please knit like crazy and send them in. Mike"
