It is amazing that a 3rd grader has the patience to knit a sweater!!  She even did her swatch to make sure it comes out the right size.

Once the guests arrive, they pick their fabrics and get started right away.  Here they are cutting out and attaching the eyes.

So Cute!

I don’t know how they do it, but each student manages to pick the perfect eyes to go with their owl.
