I just finished a wave scarf. Very easy to do. The size is about: 8"x 60". It is loose fitting and the yarn overs give a nice appearance. I used Tahki 100% cotton yarn. I found this yarn shop, Yarns By Design in Neenah, Wisconsin. Click here for their website. I used a darker color for ends and a lighter color for main part of scarf. Thanks to my friend Cindy for helping with interpreting the pattern.

I had so much fun knitting these Market Bags. As a teacher I have parent volunteers each year who give up their time each month to bring natural science concepts into Kindergarten! The program is called; 4 Winds. I hope my parent volunteers like their new bags for carrying their fruit and vegetables in!

These kerchiefs were so easy to knit. The pattern is from a great book, Last-Minute Knitted Gifts by, Joelle Hoverson. You can use any soft wool or cotton. The kerchief is triangular so that you can tie around neck, with the tie off to one side of the neck.

I had a lot of fun knitting this market bag for a new friend, beginning her new teaching job. I have always thought that teachers are always carrying bags around! Some teachers have 1 or 2 bags, while others seem to keep finding them in closets, thrift shops, hand me downs from family or friends or some of us even make them!
I hope my friend Jenny enjoys her bag and finds it useful whether it be for organic goodies to cook with or to carry her teacher essentials!
Jenny loved her bag and goodies for the kitchen. We look forward to collaborating in the fall and of course Jenny is teaching me all about a mac!

It is really hard to believe that summer is slipping away. One of my favorite things to do is to knit with friends. I always get so inspired and re-fueled with new ideas and challenges. Beth is working on some tricky mittens and Cindy is finishing up a shawl she started. I am knitting a market bag in pink cotton for a friend who is beginning her first teaching job in the fall. The pattern is from Yarndance and called, "Fruit and Vegetable Market Bag". For me the handles are a bit tricky, but will seek out knitting help for this!
