Note from Heather: Stacy is curious as to what each ball of Peaches 'n Cream will look like. She lives 2 blocks away from Ben Franklin. She has been a frequent visitor to the store to add to her dishcloth yarn stash. These are the dishcloths she knitted since November 1.

Note: I made a pair of these mittens for Addison's Sunday school teacher. I actually followed the directions this time and they ended up too long. I'm blaming the yarn. Miss Nancy likes them and uses them. She says she can keep her hands extra warm because there is room to wear a pair of gloves underneath.

Note from Heather: Addison gave this hat to Mrs. Reeves - the assistant teacher in her classroom. Addison wants a hat just like it. So I bought some cute pink yarn and matching button. Addison informed me she wants hers to be the same color as Mrs. Reeves' hat.

Here's my other teacher scarf to go w/ the brown fingerless mits. This yarn is so soft and warm, but I don't like knitting w/ "fun" yarn that doesn't give. My sister made me a whole poncho out of this yarn and every time I worked on the scarf, I would thank her again for my favorite poncho!
Note from Janet: Here are my 2nd pair of that I made w/ leftover yarn. They're not the cutest thing I've ever made! On the pic that I'm not wearing them, the bottom one reminds me of Baskin Robbins rainbow sherbet - raspberry, orange and pineapple. The top one looks like a mallard duck! At first I thought pumpkin w/ the orange and green, but as soon as I looked at the pic I took, it's a duck!
Note from Heather: I hope Santa brings Janet some felting yarn for Christmas.
Note from Heather: I was delighted that there were 11 prayer shawls to be blessed by our minister. Our Prayer Shawl Presbyterians group was formed less than 3 months ago. I believe we are doing a good thing and can't wait for people to receive these gifts.

Note from Heather: I let Charlotte pick out colors for her slippers. She picked bluebell and chartreuse to remind her of the sky and grass. I had a bit of fun with them by changing the stripes on the foot. Charlotte is in college so I thought she'd have fun with them. They remind me of Dr. Seuss. Oh the places Charlotte will go!

Note from Janet: I made these for my sister in exchange for letting me raid her yarn stash/leftovers to make teacher gifts - see purple and brown fingerless mits and scarves, but shhh, don't tell :)
