Here's an article I ran across that some of you might find interesting. Apparently lots of grammar school children of a certain age are almost knitting. According to this article it's the biggest kids' fad of the year. I wonder how these kids would react to a teacher who could actually knit these things. For your consideration:

This afghan was made to give to a friend as a birthday gift. One of my favorite afghans I have made.

Knitting caps an easy way?

I just finished knitting a Beret for a friend of mine, the first for me. Anyway, I used two 16" circulars, a size 1 & 2. Well, before I finished I was needing to switch to a set of dpn's and I hated it so tried two 24" circular's. When I got down to a smaller number of stitches, I then had to use the dpn's.

I made probably the worst mistake you could make when making something like this... I did not make a swatch. I paid for it! Next time. It still came out fine. Lesson learned.

I can only shudder to think what will happen when a man decides to make a similar statement. ;)
