Gift knitting


I've been knitting. Gift knitting, and gift knitting, and I still have more gift knitting to do. :) But, I love it.
So far, for Christmas, I have knit 5 1/2 pairs of fiber trend clogs. I haven't felted any yet. Hehe. Maybe I'll get to that when I finish this last pair.
I got some yarn that's white with little splashes of purple, blue, yellow, and green to go around the pinwheel blanket. I'm giving it away to LD's friend's new baby (sister?) in the Spring. She's also getting the cute little pink hat and booties. (Pink, so yeah, hopefully it's a girl) I'd put them on a boy, but you know, some parents might not like the pink/sparkly booties for their son.
I also got dishcloth cotton in Christmasy colors to do dishcloths for teachers, friends, etc. Everybody loves dishcloths, even if you have a dishwasher. Not that I have one, but, Santa, if you're reading, I'd really, really, really like a dishwasher, and maybe a new camera that works with a darn!
Today is my first knitting class of the school year. I actually ran into a student while looking at yarn in the big city. My friend Mel and I went shopping this weekend, and you know the saying shop til ya drop? Yeah, that was me. I was worn out! I have a few boys in my class again. I love it! The kids are so excited. There was a little mix up, though. The sign up sheet went out saying grades 1-3, instead of 3-6. Ooooof! Luckily the couple of 2nd graders who are signed up already know something about knitting.
Well, if I want to get anything in the house done before class this afternoon, I'd better get myself away from this machine!!
Hope everyone had a great weekend. Knit on!!!!!!!!
P.S. Oh, yeah, remember the little blue hat and booties? I got to hold the baby I made them for, and he was wearing them. He's so so so so so so cute!!!

Cool clogs! I would write a longer comment, but I have to go, um, gift knit while it's still nap time over here! :)

Good luck with class!

Those Fiber Trend clogs are addicting, aren't they?!

'Tis the season for holiday knitting, indeed!

Wow, you are really going to town on those slippers! I really need to make some - or maybe you could just send me some ;-)

You are so good! That's a LOT of gift knitting; I'm sure everyone will love what you make them because it all looks great. Have fun teaching a new generation how to knit!
