One of my students had a baby brother just arrive. To welcome the little fellow, I knitted up a pair of these baby booties designed by Caroline Dlugy-Hegwer. How fun! I believe this pattern might be a newborn-baby-booties go-to pattern. Thanks, Caroline! (And for fun...editing photos...I love doing that!)
I wish to be knitting much more. Time just gets wrapped up in other things. Somewhere, I read a phrase that said, "I knit so that I don't kill you." (Paraphrased of course.) I absolutely love that and seem to find some truth in that. I long to knit more and more...
I have always had a problem with pants. My legs are too short, the pants come too long. The bottoms end up always getting so ratty from dragging on the ground...and while that's "cool" for a while, it ends up creating raggedy high-waters I can't stand wearing. But the jeans are still good. So, I'm back to one of my new favorite things. Changing my pants into skirts.
My first graders were totally excited about it, because it was a skirt AND jeans! (I have 10 girls and 4 boys...therefore lots of girl power...these boys have become extremely tolerable to girls and a great gain of respect for women...at least they lead me to believe that.) A mom commented that it was cute.
At the school where I teach they last day of school before the 5-day Thanksgving break is Grandparents' Day. We serve and each a Thanksgiving meal with our students and their grandparents (lots of other fun involved, too...like a chapel service, talent show, room visits, book fair...). We made our grandparents some gifts. A felt tic-tac-toe board and a candy filled turkey. Exciting!
