Today, to inspire my youngest to sit down and finish their schoolwork, I promised them black belts. I apparently am more motivated than they are to work, as I finished both belts before they could complete their work. It did keep them plugging away while I knitted. I was even able to throw in a few idle threats that lazy students might just get white belts instead. My daughter is eagerly awaiting her belt (all dressed in black this morning) but steadily procrastinating at her school work. Both belts sit freshly ironed in their view as they finish up the few pages left. I have to say I enjoyed the fun twist on knitting and school work this morning and look forward to however it is they want to use these ninja belts at the end of the day, or night depending on how long they drag this out.
For those interested in the pattern
size 11 needles, chunky yarn
casted on 8 stitches and knit in stockinette stitch until long enough, or like in my case, until you run out of yarn.
