Sometimes we see holiday gift ideas that are a little more entertaining than most. This one is from our friend Eileen.

First we'll have to explain a little bit about her brother's family. Her brother has a very large family--7 children. Her brother's family is apparently very organized because not only do they home school and thus prepare lessons for all these children, but also every child is assigned a color. The children always wear clothes in their assigned colors so that at laundry time, everything is easy to sort and put away.

The colors turn out to be a beautiful rainbow:
Eileen used our Encore yarn and crocheted each kid a scarf in his or her color. Then she made the Mom a white scarf, and the Dad a black scarf. Grandma? She got the whole rainbow--and notice the black and white fringe.
