I feel quite proud of the children that they have all managed to achieve something, and I hope that I may have inspired some of them to become our next generation of knitters! I still have the first thing I knitted many years ago - a little yellow and green scarf for my teddy. I wonder how many of these little owls will be around in 30 to 40 years time?! Do you still have something you knitted when you were little? I'd love to know what it is! Bye for now! xx

What a hoot!
Hello there! A quick post to celebrate the end of term and the start of the school Easter holidays! It's been a long old term, and I've felt extremely tired for the past couple of weeks. Stretching ahead of me are two weeks of relaxation. I can't wait. I have several knitting and spinning projects planned, but am just looking forward to some totally self-indulgent 'me' time! We aren't going away, but have the odd day out planned. Tomorrow Mr JK and I are taking the train down to London. Fingers crossed that the weather stays as gorgeous as it is now - blue skies and plenty of sunshine!
My knitting club at school held the last session of the term today, and I'm pleased to say that the last of the little owls was finished, and all are ready to fly off to their new homes. The project took longer than I'd planned, partly because of the number of children (21) and only me there to help them, and also the shortness of our lunch time. We only have 45 minutes, so the children have to eat lunch in that time as well as knit! But all of them stuck at it, and the final wing was sewn on today. So with a great ta-dah, here they are in all their glory!!
