knitting holiday ornaments

here are a few of the santa hats we made. i think they came out pretty nice. each student will hang them on their own tree at home.

today we are starting a new mini-project. tiny winter hats for the x-mas tree, or chanukah bush...whatever. they might look good on a barbie, but i am hoping the kids make a set for their parents. once we have made a few, we can add them to the front of a homemade card. that will be a little cute gift for a favorite teacher or a caring aunt. here is the picture i am giving the kids, and i know they can take this pattern and be really creative!!!!

Stitches From the Heart visits Pali!!!!!

Our class was so lucky to have our first guest speaker today! Joan Whitten from Stitched From the Heart came to school to talk about their organization and to collect a batch of knitted items from the kids. We donated over 50 baby hats, 2 baby blankets, 1 afghan, and a baby sweater, hat, booties set. A huge thank you to Joan and the entire Stitches gang.
