Yesterday was the 'reward' for my son's second grade class for working so hard throughout the year to learn to knit and for working together to create scarves and a blanket that will be donated to needy members of our community.

The kids had a ball watching the colors they chose bleed into the jar and mix and mingle.
They are gripped with anticipation to see the results of their unbridled creativity.
