teachers gifts

his

hers

Teacher gifts are always one of the hardest gifts for me to buy. I am never quite sure what to get them. I am pretty happy with this years choice. The two male teachers are getting fingerless gloves.....so easy.....can whip those up in about 1 night. 2 pairs with 1 skein of cascade 220 superwash.
For the female teachers, I "peared" a bath mitt with APPLE soap. I first saw the bath mitt on Sara+h's blog. Super easy, super quick. 1 skein of sugar'n and cream gets almost 3 mitts! Also super cheap! It was the apple soap that cost me! I found that at my favorite boutique in town, Rustic Roots.Off to check the inventory of my holiday shopping!

Thank you! I just figured out what to give Lola's guides (Montessori speak for "teachers"). Duh. Sometimes I'm more than a bit daft. I've knit a dozen of these things since I originally posted about them but somehow I never put two and two together. I mean, I intended to give them as small holiday gifts. Why have I been stressing out about what to give Lola's teachers? Daft, I tell you.

Keep up the great work and neat Christmas ideas.

WON'T THE TEACHER'S FINGERS GET COLD WITH FINGERLESS GLOVES. KIND OF REMINDS ME OF THE MOVIE OLIVER "PLEASE SIR, MAY I HAVE SOME MORE?"

I have just discovered your blog recently and I am hooked. I am also relatively new to knitting and thought that these bath mitts would be perfect to make for some gifts along with the soaps I picked up in Colonial Williamsburg on vacation. I went to the site, got the directions and have been trying to make a mitt this weekend. (You make it look like you could whip them up 2 or 3 in an evening!) Anyway, mine is a disaster and I was wondering if you could e-mail some pointers or even decipher part of this chart for me? I would sooooo love it if you could help me. My e-mail address is valeriebee@comcast.net.
Thanks for such an inspiring blog site! Valerie :)
