Weekends

Pumpkin doughnuts. Washing windows. Birthday parties. Quick trips to fabric store. Sewing. Homeschool Organization.

Yarn Along

:: Yarn Along ::


Joining Ginny of Small Things

Let me start by saying that I have completed neglected my blog this week. But today is a new day and I am going to change that. Lately, I have been preoccupied with a million other little things. Changing clothes for the new season, revamping our homeschooling because we are having a hard time finding that "rhythm" everyone talks about, and the impending holiday seasons. So, I just need to breathe and focus my energy on what is really important at this moment. Knitting allows me to center myself and just focus on the moment. 

Here's what I have been working on and reading lately...




I'm reading The Lost Hours by Karen White and I picked up a book on Waldorf education. I would like to incorporate those ideas into our "schooling" 


I finished this bookmark for myself last week and forgot to post it. I love it! Guess who is getting one for Christmas? EVERYONE! 


James ( my hubby) has a birthday at the end of the month. He wanted a scarf and he even picked out the yarn. So, a basket weave  scarf it is! 

Still working on Ce-Ce's Christmas gift. Only to realize that I must have misread the directions because two diamonds are touching and they aren't supposed to. Grr...oh well, it will have "character". I am a novice knitter! 


Happy Knitting! 



PS: I see a lot of people have great banners on their blogs with multiple pictures in it. How do you do that? I am not computer savvy.
