Every year since my son started kindergarten, my mother has knit items for every child in his class. She has done scarves a couple of times, mitts and touques. The kids always seem to enjoy getting them.
This year she knit scarves out of variegated wool (multicoloured). I didn't know how well they would go over, but the scares were a smash hit. Three scarves were single coloured, and the one girl who picked a green one, changed her mind and went for a variegated one.
Three of the scarves went to the Mitten Tree at the United Church, and a few more will go to friends of ours who have 6 children and can always use extra.
Here are the kids in his class saying thank-you.
You know, I was about to upload a video of the children saying thank you to my Mom, but now that I think of it, that might not be a good idea. I didn't get permission from their parents. Let's just say that the kids said "Merci" and all looked really cute.
Disturbing as it may be, here is a picture with the faces blacked out - sorry, I couldn't figure out how to make them a more reasonable colour, but you can see the scarves. Just imagine it's a video and they are saying thank you:
It was pajama day at school, BTW.
