As mentioned, my youngest insisted that Mommy have a hat that matched hers, so we could be "twins", too!
Used the same yarn as for her hat (Sirdar Indie wool/acrylic blend, Shade 0152), but did a bamboo stitch in the round instead of a stockinette stitch on straight needles. She was pleased, and so was I!
Thanks also for all of you who offered advice in my post about my recent trials and tribulations with the girls. I am on it, and am sure this, too, shall pass! Parenting isn't for sissies, is it? To help with some positive parenting to combat this issue, I made a "Kindness Tree."
My youngest has one at her preschool- when someone is "caught" doing an unprompted kind deed for another, they get to decorate the tree. I had my son paint the trunk on some poster board and cut it out, then hot glued an assortment of leaves, birds, eggs, flowers from the dollar store to some thumb tacks.
The kids are really excited to work together to have the tree all filled up in time for spring, so it will be a great lesson in teamwork as well.
I guess I'll keep them!
As you can see I used clovers in the place of leaves on the tree....Happy St. Patty's Day!
