It's so great to come back from a week off with the children, and family camp, and find I still have followers. It makes me so happy, in fact, I feel like a give away.
I'm not a professional crafter, by any means, but I know several of you expressed an interest in purchasing a tiny, knit kitten, after I posted about making a few, this summer.
In fact, I briefly considered opening up an Etsy store, for that purpose. There's just no way I could keep up with something like that, at this point, though. If I get brave, and motivated, I think it would be great fun to talk to the manager of one of our local grocery stores, about letting the children sell a few, outside of the store, as a follow up to Beverly Cleary's Socks. The trick is getting brave, and motivated at the same time - so we'll see.
In the meantime, I would love to send a tiny kitten out to each of you, as a thank you for the kind comments, encouragement, and ideas I've received here. But, of course, that would mean I would have to give up homeschooling the children, and devote myself to nothing but knitting, and mailing out kittens, for the next year or two, which doesn't sound feasible, either.
But, I do have one little guy ready to go. And, I'm pretty sure, just one trip to the post office couldn't do too much damage to our schedule.
So, here's the deal, if you'd like the kitten pictured above, leave me a comment below, and tell me your favorite, fall activity for children. I figure as long as you're leaving a comment, it might as well be interesting. And besides, it's time to put up our fall, leaf list, and I could use the suggestions.
I'll pick one winner from the commenters on Friday. Be sure to leave me an email address for contacting you, if you win.
Oh, and just as an FYI, the kitten is made from acrylic yarn, is about three inches long, and is intended as a toy, to be played with, but can be pulled apart, and turned into a choking hazard, and so is not recommended for children under three.
***I guess I should have said - yes, I will ship overseas :) ***
It's great to be a homeschooler.
