So, this past week my niece Surfer Girl and I worked on her Social Studies project. She had decided that she wanted to knit the Panama Flag! How cool is that? Last time she knit a snake for her Science project. If I can get a picture of that I'll share it next time!
Ok...So, she imed me last week and asked if I would help her and I said sure but we need to get started ASAP! It took until Sunday night for us to get together but she came over and we figured out the chart. I searched online for a star chart and we planned it out. So, Monday we realized she didn't have the right blue so we went and bought yarn at Jo-Anne Fabrics and then she started knitting.
Her school gives A TON of homework. I know because I used to be one of her teacher's but I never gave homework. :) So, she had her mom call me Tuesday night asking me if I could help because she was a bit overwhelmed. I said sure and picked up some blue yarn from her and I knit the blue square and then knit the white with the blue. I did say she had a lot of homework.
Oh, I forgot to mention, Surfer Girl is the tightest of tight knitters. She knit her squares using US 7s and I knit using US 5s and mine were still larger than hers. The last square she knit was the white with the red star and I made her knit using size 9s and it was still smaller than mine! What can we do.
Well...she didn't have time to sew the last part together. I sewed the other three while she finished her homework Wed night. It was due thursday! So, she put it on construction paper and turned it in. I still think it looks great!
Go SURFER GIRL! Her mom did tell her teacher I knit two squares but her teacher is a friend of mine so it's ok. :)
And after all the great comments on yesterday's post I wanted to share some happy dog pictures in my defense. We'll call these Dogs with Bones!
Can you tell who is more protective over her bones? My silly silly girl. I love how Jackjack's ears are all back and if you would have seen how fast his tail was going. He doesn't like to carry things in his mouth so when I asked him to stay he put it down and stared at me. What a good boy!
We want to say a HUGE thank you to Ginger from dogyarnfun whose mom gave us these bones because she didn't like them.
Ok...hope everyone has a great weekend! I'll be back for more post and hopefully get a podcast up this weekend too!
Happy Knitting and Dog Loving!
