FO Present for my son's teacher
When I took my son to school I found out the his teacher turned 60 today.

So went to the shop and bought flowers and a card but thought I would like to knit her something,

I went home and designed and knitted this wash cloth in about 2 hours. Also had a bar of L'Occitane soap in one of my knitting boxes (makes the yarn smell heavenly) which I wrapped up in the cloth.

My son gave it to her when I picked him up from school. A bit of a mad rush, so glad that is over.

She did really appreciate the gift. gave my son a thank you card which he is thrilled with. I am quite surprised that nobody really seemed to have bothered. She is a lovely and kind teacher. strikes just the right balance between being firm with the kids but kind enough that they can always approach her if they have a question or something.

The last school my son was at the teacher was so nice that all the kids walked all over her and learnt nothing. then he had a teacher that was so strict that he cried everyday going to school. He loves school now and are doing really well.
