Pro D Day

The teachers at Devan’s school had a professional development day today so he had the day off. Naturally that meant there was no time to design or write patterns.  So instead, we spent a fun day together.  We baked some cookies

and made a crafty sheep.

Sheep 1 Sheep 2 Sheep 3 Sheep 4

The idea for the sheep came from this great weekly e-newsletter we get called Kids Craft Weekly.  It has great ideas and it’s kid tested.  Devan has enjoyed all the projects we’ve made from the newsletter.

Tomorrow it will be back to business as usual.  I will be packing up a suitcase full of kits and patterns to send out to Lucy Neatby’s Adventure Knitting Retreat on Salt Spring Island.  The retreat starts this Sunday and I do so wish I could be there too!  I will have to be satisfied with seeing Lucy this Friday evening.  We (the West Coast Knitters’ Guild) is sponsoring a presentation where Lucy will talk about her career as a knitwear designer and her passion for knitting.  If you’re in the Vancouver area you should come out to the event.  Click here for more information.
