I am in the crochet zone. Scarves all around - mostly.
For Aidin's teacher, who's favorite color is pink.
She gets hot, so I wanted something lightweight that could be doubled up for warmth on the playground. I used a hot pink baby weight yarn with some silvery grey bamboo yarn for edging. I thought the edging just made it.
For Aidin's substitute, a retired teacher who had been filling at least part of every day for the last few months while Aidin's teacher rests and has her cancer treatments, a scarf as well. Aidin and Mrs. K. have really butted heads, so I thought she deserved something special.
For Eliot's teacher, I tried to match her cranberry red coat with something warm for the blustery playground.
And two more gifts for Aidin's science and language arts teachers, a quick fabric flower pin. Aidin chose the buttons from Grandma Jean's button box which my mom passed down to her.
