New Knitting Friend

Last Friday Cali and Cody came into work with Wendy.
They had no school for some reason and during tax season Dan can not function with out Wendy, so the kids come into work with her.

Wendy sets them up in the conference room with dvd's to watch and usually something crafty for Cali.

Dan (whom Cali thinks never says no)always buys pizza for lunch.
So it is a fun day for all of us.

While eating lunch, Cali found her way back to my office, (is it because it's the only place not strewn with papers, or that my desk is always clean of clutter?) we ate our lunch, chatted, and knit.

Cali has been knitting for a couple of months now, she hasn't wanted to purl yet, but the child has the knit stitch down.

She was making wrist warmers, and was at the point to cast off. I showed her how to do the 1st 2 stitches and she completed the cast off all by herself. She is a fast learner that Cali.

Monday morning I received this little package.

It said: to: Leisa, love Cali, I hope you love it!, I did it by myself!
Clue: It is Knitted!

I love a girl who knows when to use an exclamation point!

In the package was this cute little basket.
She had the yarn with her on Friday and I had commented that it would make a great Easter Basket.

My work here is done.
