Pink Kerchief Scarves!

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.

Knitted Hats For My Students!

I finally finished knitting 17 wool hats for all of my students!  I used a variety of wools, different colors and 3 different patterns.  I decided not to felt as I was worried about the shrinkage!  Afterwards I wrapped each hat in a colorful piece of paper, tied the ends with leftover yarn and then printed colored cards!  Each card is a photograph I took on one of our field trips in the fall.  On the back of each card I wrote,"What do you notice?"  This is something we do a lot of in and out of the classroom.  I thought that the kids would think it was neat/interesting........  We'll see.
