A Stack'o'Cowls

When I was little, my mom would make cross-stitched Christmas ornaments for my teachers each year.  It was a tradition that lasted through grade-school, at least, and I can remember being excited to pick out a cross-stitch kit for each teacher each year.

Last year, I knitted hand warmers for the Kid's teachers.  Continuing the tradition--and getting a good jump start--this year I'm making cowls.  (Pattern and yarn info.)  I love the idea of doing a little handmade something, and I hope that as the Kid grows up he'll help me pick out yarn colors and patterns for all of the awesome people who help him learn every day.
