Fingerless Gloves - Floral Design

Etsy Shop - Fingerless Gloves 
I'm working on a Fingerless Glove pattern. These were knitted with a double strand of yarns: Lamb's Pride worsted weight 'Sapphire', and a Chenille (Lion's Brand 'Paris Print' - I believe). The leaves and flowers were added after the 'gloves' were done. They are so soft, and they fit me perfectly.

'The Starry Night', by Vincent van Gogh and 280 Elementary School Students, the Principal, Teachers...

'The Starry Night' by: Vincent van Gogh

The long view from the gym.

Here is this year's mural! I chose Vincent van Gogh's: 'The Starry Night' to paint because many students asked why we hadn't done it yet. This mural is made up of 300 squares, 5.5" each. It is painted by 280+ students, our principal, teachers, 2 cooks, and a bus driver. I am so proud of my school - we are a great team!
