How cute are these?
....and I didn't make a single one of them! (Although the blanket they're posed on is one I knit for her when she was a wee baby). J
These are my daughter Charlotte's creations and she's been crocheting them like a fiend for days now. The other day she brought about a dozen to hand out as little gifts to the other kids in her Finance class. I don't know if you can tell from the picture, but each little pair of ice skates is joined by a chained "shoelace" and the blades are paper clips! They make darling little Christmas tree ornaments. She's hoping to con her grandparents and sundry aunts, uncles and cousins into purchasing them at our Thanksgiving celebration for 50 cents a piece. Bless her greedy little heart! J
In all fairness though, her Finance class has been impressing the entrepreneurial spirit on all the students and last week they held a silent auction at the Homeschool Creative Learning Center where the class is held. Each student brought in handmade items to sell and 10% of the proceeds were donated to the Creative Learning Center.
Charlotte now has her own business she calls "Hand Knit Happiness" and she's takes requests if anyone's interested! J
