How on earth is anyone supposed to compete with that???? LOL! Amazing piece of work. Hats off (pun intended) to S. Chilcott, and I believe she has earned a year supply of smoothies.



That is b e a u t i f u l

Surely 222 years of free smoothies!?


S Chilcott you have done a fantastic job! What a clever idea & what a LOT of work!
Well Done - you really do deserve the "HAT OF THE WEEK"!!

hi it's me sarah chilcott,
i did put info in, and a photo the box prehaps it slipped underneath the tissue paper,
it wasn't just me, the ladies of
Sherborne and District Machine Knitting Club had their needles working hard. We started to knit the hats at our agm, cos i try to keep it short and sweet, and i asked them to go home and knit more, our aim was 100.
Well we don't don't hang about, some were made on the knitting machine which took seconds to knit, and much longer to sew up.
Gail knitted the bottle,(and the fisherman) IT WAS HER HUSBANDS CHALLENGE, she'e not one to let anything beat her, and didn't she do a brill job.
Glad to be of help, our meetings are help in the Senior Lunch club in Sherborne so we like to keep it in the family so to speak.

Many thanks for such wonderful comments

I'm very proud of what the ladies have managed to pull off here! great work. I can assure you that being in Gails extended family holds numerous benefits; cardi's / tea cosies / peg bags / socks / jumpers for the dog / knitted cupcakes and such like. I think any future wool shortages can be linked to the Sherboure & District Machine Knitting Club! hehe :-) Becky

So proud of my Mum and the girls – you should see what else they can knit...


Hello Sarah.
Thanks for commenting, I'm really glad you found the post, and it's great to have a name to put to that inital. I didn't get your letter which is a real shame, but then the bottle had been admired by a lot of folk before it got to me.

It's magnificent. It really is, and it's still on that pedestal being cooed at by all who pass. Thank you once again to you and all at Sherbourne and District Machine Knitting Club. As soon as the post calms down I'll send you something to say thank you.
