The Scarf Solution

 My sister is a very creative person and she posted a solution to our scarf dilemma here !
It's perfect.
Fun to make
And cheaper than buying them.
 It was suppose to be a dress rehearsal today, but as you can see.... lots of kids forgot. 
Oh, well. We try.

Kids came early for a chance to make their own scarf 
and to learn how to knit with their fingers.
We didn't use a single knitting needle in the making of these 17 scarves...

 We didn't manage to finish all of them before choir,
but the moms sat in the back and finished up several.
I think they were enjoying themselves...

No, the boys aren't wearing scarves for the program,
but Caleb likes knitting and we gave him some other yarn to work with and he did a good job!

 Aren't they cute?
Julia - the long blond smiling in the back won the prize for being the quickest to get her scarf made.
I think she made it in 20 minutes flat.

Now if we can't just iron out a few of the wrinkles in the speaking part of things...

Thanks, Julie.

The scarves are beautiful! I love knitting the artisan yarn scarves, but I've only tried it with wooden needles. Finger knitting sounds a lot more fun!
