Teacher gifts, part 1

I really wanted to make hats & scarves for the 5 teachers that work the most with my 3 children.   But alas, I ran out of time.   Rather, I managed my time poorly.  I worked on the ones I needed later, first.   Not very smart.  So with deadline #1 looming, I switched to an old quickie, standby- the crocheted bath mitt.

I added ribbing around the wrist and a little hanging loop.
Wrapped up with some holiday bath gels....

Shoved into a cute box, with some chocolate and a hand-colored gift tag...DONE!

Next up, one of the hat/scarf projects I did complete.   I'm not in love with it, but I wanted to try out chunky yarn and it looked pretty on the skein.   I think the hat's too big and the scarf is too skinny.  I attached it into a loop, so its kind of a scarf, cowl, thingy.  It looks cute on, but maybe the teacher will not know what to do with it?   I expect to see this one at a Goodwill near me soon.    It's the thought that counts, right?

A box of chocolate goodies for the bus driver is up next for tomorrow, then the last two teachers and goodie recipients up for next week.

  1. Hilarious...You can take a picture of you with you at the Goodwill and then email it to the teacher and say "Wow what a coincidence!"
