Believe it or not, I have been knitting

My infrequent blogging has allowed me a surplus of time to knit and weave and spin! I have lots to show for it but I will start with my most recent knitting project.

Last week I decided I wanted to make something for my younger boys' teachers for the end of the year. Money is, well, isn't. I do however have yarn as any good knitter does. I looked through all my patterns and searched the web but found nothing that fit the bill. What's a girl to do? Design something of course!

Using left overs from socks I came up with this...

I know it's nothing like a sweater but I have to say I was on cloud nine when I finished the first one. What a high to be able to just sit with yarn and needles and make something from a picture in your head.

I've finished 3 so far and need to do 2 more by Wednesday. I'm half way through the 4th so I think I'll make it. Here are the 3 that are complete, the one is filled to give you an idea of how it looks in action;

I plan to fill them with Dove chocolates or Hershey Kisses. It's not much but it's a small token of my appreciation. After I finish these 5 I need to do at least 3 more for Joshua's other school. Doesn't that seem like an awful lot of teachers for two preschoolers?
