I have been knitting Fetching...over and over again....For Christmas presents. It is a nice quick knit but I am growing weary of it.... I am sticking to it until the end because I want to prove that I can and be sure to have these prezzies done!
Currently I am knitting my LAST TWO! On hand almost done in both greens....
Four Finished Fetchings viewed below. Four fine people will recieve these. A total of six pairs of fingerless gloves. Twelve fingerless gloves...Did I mention I am getting weary of them?
I like how they look though. Next up in the Christmas category, a Sock Monkey Hat.
The Poncho is on hold till I have another block of time to work on it. Getting back to work puts a crimp in my knitting time!
I have started knitting with my Junior and Senior Kindergarteners at the daycare! They love it! I do Nine O'Clock Knitting. Everyday at least one person is invited to come and "help" me knit. The children either place their hands on my hands or on the needles. Some just placidly lay their hands there and others try to move the needles themselves (it makes knitting much more challenging!) . I repeat a few times every time "in, around, out, off as kind of a knitting chant. It is a good tool to teach them left and right, fine motor coordination and counting (the rows and stitches). It also gives me one on one special time with someone new everyday! We have decided that every month we will knit with the colour of the month and by June we should have enough knit to make a blanket that we can take on a special picnic! This month is purple. I keep trying to remember to bring my camera so I can take a picture of their little hands helping out.
Nothing much else happening other than work or sleep with a bit of knitting thrown in there. OH! I did joint a Grey's Anatomy KAL. I can't wait for the new season! I think I'll start with the Sock Monkey hat seeing as it is mainly grey.
