Teachers Gifts 2014

Somehow this year I got suckered into creating three teacher gifts. They were worth it though – three caring women helped make Grade 3 a success for my daughter.

For her homeroom teacher who has lovely blue eyes – a blue Tiger Lily Cowl knit in Berroco Vintage.

For her most awesome LST, a crocheted Mini Market Bag in reclaimed sari silk. I wish I could have captured the colours properly on this bag – it was so vibrant.

And finally for the great English teacher she’s had for two years, Tree of Life fingerless mitts in KnitPicks Swish DK. I’ll be making more of these for sure – they knit up very quickly and they look amazing.

Another year in the books. Now I have a great summer with both kiddos planned, and in the fall, Grade 4 and JK *sniff!*.
