A Giving Day

I got the teachers gifts finished in plenty of time and today my girls delivered them to their teachers. I'm not sure that they look like much here but trust me - they were pretty cute.

MDK Washcloths

Just in case you missed the earlier post, these are washcloths from Mason-Dixon Knitting that I made with Sugar and Cream yarn and filled with bars of handmade soap from Daisycakes. I got a few different scents and the girls chose a bar of soap, a washcloth and a ribbon for each or their teachers and made thank you notes that we attached.

I really love this idea for teacher gifts and I'm happy with the way it came out but it was not one of my favorite knits. Those cotton yarns are really hard on your hands! I kept having to stop and massage my aching muscles. Maybe this is why Stinkerbelle's blankie is stalled.

Dulaan 2007 StuffI also sent off a little package for Dulaan today. I made most of these things last fall and put them away in a cabinet to see what else I could put together. Sadly I never really had time to do much more Dulaan knitting so I wasn't able to add anything more than a hat. As I pulled it out on the cabinet I noted that it almost looks like 2 somewhat coordinated sets. I didn't plan it but I think it's kind of cool. Really I'm just very proud that I got it in the mail on time. I guess that it's time for me to start knitting for Dulaan 2008.

Love those washcloths and soaps as gifts, I've gone the same route myself. Although I must admit I'm happy the days of teacher gifts are over!

love the teacher gifts - they're so pretty!!
and Dulaan mitts and hats are sweet too. I'll bet the children who receive them will love them.

I love the little clothes too and make them all the time for gifts. They seem to work for any occasion!
