Hello friends,I hope you are having a good week so far I have been enjoying the week, mostly knitting and job searching as I am currently unemployed. I find ways to keep my spirits up like I knit a lot which gives me something to do and feel accomplished when I finish a project, chat with family and friends, and go out for walks and go run errands. I have contemplated going to workshops concerning my field of early childhood education while I am unemployed. I attended the "Wonder of Learning" exhibit in Toronto last Friday which informed me more about the Reggio Emilia approach. That was very interesting and I am so glad that I went.
In other news I have knitted one hat for charity, and going to begin another hat soon. I have been knitting gifts for family and friends for Christmas and I am almost done knitting a couple things. I will also be starting to knit a gift for my boyfriend which I will give you a sneak peak to see it but I will post all my knitted gifts after Christmas so I don't spoil the surprises. I am excited that I will be finished knitting by the end of November because last Christmas I was scrambling to finish knitting gifts right up to Christmas Eve. I was still in University at the time and swamped with exams and assignments until mid December so it is so nice to have this time right now to complete the gifts in good time for Christmas. I am sharing some photos below of the completed child's hat to be donated to the Salvation Army Toy Depot and I am working on some more smaller hats for babies and toddlers to be donated as well.
|The first finished hat for charity and beginning the second, which will be a baby hat. I might make two in this color yarn because I will have leftover yarn.|
|When I was just starting to knit the first hat for charity. I was so excited that I could knit this up in one day!|
