something for my teacher!!
I had a great great prof for two of my courses last year..she was GREAT! a great teacher..a great person..so nice and friendly..and i just LOVED her..

so now that I'm knitting..and I don't think I'll be having any other courses with her..I'm thinking about knitting her something pretty..maybe a shawl or something..not sure what I want to knit her but it just have to be easy! I'm a begginer..and even though I'm willing to take a bit of challenge..I can't take much cause I'll be busy between school and my volunteer work so I want something that I can knit up fairly quick..
any suggestions???

she's in her 40s..have a couple of kids..wouldn't say she's 'big'.. dresses like most women her age do! and I have no clue what would be the colors she likes..

I kno I didn't offer much help there! but that's all i have!

thanks a lot!


EDIT: forgot to say that I would also like something that wouldn't require a ton of fancy yarn..cause after all I'm a student with no job!

It's not a shawl obviously but couldn't not suggest this dishcloth. You could do several in different colours.

I am big on washclothes. The cotton yarn is inexpensive and there are tons of patterns out there. How about a basket with a couple washclothes in pretty colors and maybe a decorative hand soap, or bath & body works stuff smells good. I think it would be personal and if she has kids it would be something she may not always buy herself. Being someone that age my kids always get everything first, so I don't always buy things to pamper myself much.
