I was just informed by the five year old today that his two kindergarten teachers like the color blue and I need to make them scarves for Christmas. He also reminded me of his three Sunday school teachers and their color preferences. He's even picked out the most expensive yarn in my stash for the scarves. Oh yes, he also said not forget about my three year old daughters two teachers and three Sunday school instructors. This count does not include his best friend at school and future wife at Sunday school--he has not proposed yet but he said they will be living in his bedroom when they do get married.

I only hope my size 19 needles hold out. Wish me luck and if you're in the mood, send some Tylenol my way.

Cute! If you do knit them all, hold off on the kindergarten teachers until the school year starts. He might get different teachers in September from the ones he had last year, and they might like other colours LOL.

Perhaps for the Sunday school insrtructors a gift card for supplies might go over better; seems like those places are always desperate for supplies.

Aww, how cute! You're going to have a very sweet and thoughtful young man on your hands soon!

I do want to remind you, though, that there is no "Thou Shalt Knit For Everyone For Christmas" commandment, so if it gets to be stressful, don't be shy about backing off. Knitting is supposed to be fun and relaxing, and there can be other events where a knitted gift could be appropriate.

How cute. I especially like the part about his future wife and that they will live his bedroom.

This story is definitly a keeper. Make sure you write it down for a scrapbook. Maybe even do a page with the colors he picked out. Then maybe teach him to knit and let him knit the scarves. I know one of my son, Justin, was very proud of the scarf he made for his teacher.

As a former teacher, can I just say that they will love those scarves? Nice to get something different than a mug with an apple on it. (And if you have given a teacher a mug with an apple on it - I'm sure it was loved and cherished, all the same.)

Boy, I hope he holds off on proposing to give you enough time to knit all these gifts and the ones he'll want for the wedding.

So cute! Hey, at least he's paying attention. He knows you knit and values your work. He wants to pass those treasured gifts on to some of the most important people in his life, never mind that they may all change in the next 5 minutes. It's a good sign that his view of the world is growing to include people outside of himself and his own family.

I think it's sweet.

I think he's so sweet too. He's really very loving (except to his little sister sometimes). I'm drawing the line at knitting a present for his dog.

BTW, his future wife came to church last week carrying a headless baby doll. [**] But there is hope--Gracie, my future daughter in law, made the priest bless the doll. I just hope she doesn't call it Anne Boelyn like Wednesday from the Addams Family.
