I want to thank everyone for all their lovely suggestions on what to get my little one's preschool teacher. I decided to go with the bath mitt after I found a skein of sugar and cream cotton in a peppermint coloring.
I hunted through the stores from some fancy soap :) We found this one that is vanilla and blackberry and smells divine.
The pattern is free here and you can ravel it here. I followed the directions exactly as laid out and wish I hadn't. You knit it flat and then seam up the thumb and the mitt. I don't enjoy seaming (have yet to meet a knitter who does) and after all the mitts I made for my advent calendar I think I could have easily sewn this all up in the round. Oh well, next time. Other then that small complaint it was a super easy knit and very fast (both good things when knitting a gift).
I have a few more finished projects and if I can manage to get my camera and actually photograph them then I will share them with you. Hope your Christmas prep is going well!
