I've been knitting and crocheting these chunky cowls like a madwoman over the past week. I have my Fourth Annual Holiday Fair at the preschool coming up December 6th and I wanted to be able to offer some hand knits at my table. They are so fun to make and by squeezing in a minute here and there I have been able to make one a day this past week. They are so squishy and cozy, if they sell, I may have to make more for the family.
In other news...I love that on my way out the door to the preschool this morning, my nine-year-old said with a heavy heart...I'm getting close to the end of this book and I'm so sad! I don't want it to end!! Haven't we all felt that way about a book? My boy who usually only feels this way about his Percy Jackson, Star Wars and Louis Sacher books. This just feels more special because The Story of Helen Keller was my book when I was a girl...and it is from this book about Helen Keller that I learned the alphabet in sign language. My boys are both fascinated with ASL. We have been learning new signs daily through watching the series Swithched at Birth on Netflix and by visiting the video dictionary at the web-site called Lifeprint. Our dinner conversation is a now mix of Spanish, English and ASL.
