teachers gifts

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!

  1. 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.

    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?"

  5. 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 :)
