OCD much?

by caroline



9 Amanda hats, 4 or 5 Pretty in Pink baby blankets, & 30+ wee tiny socks...yes I'm project obsessive. But for this last swap, September's Back to School theme, I really let go. School colors was the suggestion, either mine or my swap partner's. But I thought school supplies was a little more fun so I knit a pencil:





But the pencil seemed to need an eraser. Remember those half & half erasers that erase pencil & pen?:





Oh, but if you are going to knit a pen & pencil eraser then you need a pen as well:





You know what's next, don't you? Pencil, eraser, pen....it just needs paper:





I packed them all up with the real objects and sent them off in a pencil case. I had such a fun time making these (I am so easy to entertain) but I am feeling like I set my bar a little high for the next swap. How will I go back to normal wee tiny socks, now?

I've been waiting for this post because these little socks as school supplies just make me smile. You are so clever. Is it genetic?

Those are just adorable!! As a teacher for 20 yrs, I love it. I need to go back to teaching just so I can make these and give them to my students. Great gift for all the teachers you know. :-))

You are so clever! I love it!

Project OCD is much better than the project ADD that I've been experiencing :)
