My youngest son wanted to be Puss in Boots for Halloween. I bought the boot covers and hat on Amazon. He had the belt. My husband made him the sword from a dowel and a plastic cup that he painted. I knit him the sweater using two different patterns. One being the sweater construction and the other pattern for the tiger stripes. I added a belly patch to make him look more like a tabby cat and less like a tiger. My kiddo is super thrilled with his costume! ♥ You can read more about my knitting notes on my Ravelry page.

The no subject email is actually from Satan.
On a side note, I just noticed that “satan” auto corrects to “Satan” so I checked and god remains lowercase. Is spell check a tool of the devil?
Don’t ruin this for me English teachers.
For Teacher Appreciation Week, here’s an article written by Herbert Hoover dedicated to a teacher in Salem, Oregon. Miss Gray helped him develop a love of reading.
Readers Digest asked Herbert Hoover to prepare an article on the best advice he had ever received. “Thank You Miss Gray” was published in July 1959.
