As with the end of each quarter and particularly so with the fourth, there is a frenzy of knitting. Students are desperate to finish just one more project. There is a surge of needle and yarn purchasing and discussions amongst themselves of which new tools they now own. The projects came in steadily and now we've had our last day of knitting class until next fall. Here are the goods.
These two pair have ended the Second Sock Syndrome for our class. They are the first two seconds ever completed.
Here is a fine example of how one mistaken purl row on the knit side becomes a design element when we add another in a strategic spot. We all think this dishcloth is cool.
Worked with three skeiens of blue and knitted up VERY fast.
A dishcloth knitted surprisingly fast by a student who wasn't in the class the full nine weeks. Well done!
Knitted and embroidered for HIS mom for Mother's Day. Ok everyone say, "Awwwwwww." Who wouldn't want one of these!
A Nordic and very well knit earflapper.
More socks. These socks were knitted by 7th grade boys and both are determined to return to knitting class next year in order to give their socks a mate.
You'd think I was running a sweatshop for hats if you knew the speed at which these were knit.
This one is so soft.
I'm especially fond of this one.
And finally...the amazing piece of the year is this gorgeous bag! This student sort of designed this as she went adding an inside pocket and a color coordinated bottom. There is a LOT of knitted stitches in this project.
Way to go all of you! You've done me proud.
