It's been a bit since I've posted a FO. I had a few projects that I was working on but some did not work out. For example, the crochet hat I was so proud of, really did not turn out. Seriously, my knitting group got a huge laugh and even dubbed it the "Devo hat," think "just whip it, whip it good!" Here is a pathetic pic of it, just for laughs and to entertain you:
That is a hand knit sweater that I made a few years ago that I was wearing.... anyway, please stop laughing so you can continue to read...
I did make two more self fringing scarves - same yarn (it is very pretty but not fun to work with) but two different sizes. Here they are:
Here is a pic from the front (I think it's the shorter one):
For my final FO, and because I have no shame anymore, I set up a class project page with DonorsChoose.org. It's a site to post a "project" that you want for your classroom and all of the wonderfully generous people out in the world can decide if they think it's something important enough to make a donation to. The donations can be as big or little as the donor wants and benefits education. For my class, I am trying to get enough money/donations to buy a laptop for my class so we can do power points, video streaming and more. The computers we have are seriously old (I believe the are a 10.1 operating system and modern technology is up to 10.7) and don't have the ability to do any of the video/power points that would seriously enhance learning today. For more information on my class you can go to DonorsChoose.org and under state, put Pennsylvania, under city put Philadelphia and then for the school go to Louis H. Farrell. (yes, that was a shameless plug)
