FATHER’S DAY GIFTS TO MAKE — E-reader Cover and a Circular Needle Giveaway.

For the Father in your life who has an e-reader, you can knit or crochet a cover for it. On Ravelry there are a few different patterns to choose from. One person designed a cell phone cover that looks like a pop tart!

I won’t be making one for Father’s day this year but I have saved these patterns in my favorites.

I have an abundance of circular knitting needles and am giving away two. One is US size 11 and one is US size 10 1/2.

Leave a comment with a way I can get in touch with you when you win. That’s all you have to do. Tell me if and how you follow my blog for an extra entry.

Best luck to all of you.

I will pick the winner by random generator, on June 24th.

The Girl Next Door Grows Up
Blog started this Feel Good Friday meme. Pick one of her prompts and write about it on your blog!


Erika also has a new contest for blog writers here. It’s a brilliant idea and enough to make one feel good. Erika talks about her inspiration for the contest that came from Mommy On The Spot blog where there are some very touching posts: the kind of humanness that is so endearing and lets us know we are not alone.


My feel good Friday today is about doing something for someone else.


My daughter teaches 4th grade and she noticed that her students try to sharpen their pencils during quiet time for reading. She thought if she had a little cover to put over the pencil sharpeners, it would be a gentle reminder not to do that.


I crocheted her two covers and I loved them. They are made out of a beautiful variegated yarn color called sea grass.


I don;’t have a picture of them, but here are photos of 8 more I made. The other teachers in her grade level liked them, so I made some more.



My first one for a teacher with an orange reading chair.


They evolved to this one made with yarn made from recycled water bottles and I added a loop, because of Holly’s memory of playing with yogurt sweaters with loops.

Holly talked about making sweaters for keeping the yogurt warm while it ‘grows.’ I realize I can make them the same as these pencil sharpener covers and make them taller.
