I teach knitting (along with other fiber arts) to kids ages 8-15. I am always trying to make new things for them to see as possibilities for new projects. I am so amazed at what they can do!
Sweet Little Doll.
This little doll is a pretty easy one to make. Each piece is knitted flat, sewn and stuffed. Isn’t she so sweet?
We decided to go outside the box and do something completely different. We were able to get some discount tickets to the Roller Derby.
Coming out to the rink.
It was so much fun! From the very beginning to the end.
Daddy and E.
We all had a great time.
The other team.
We wound up eating dinner there – can you tell he liked his dinner of popcorn?
I think my boys had a crush.
Another fabulous outing!
Our chickens are doing so well! The have grown by leaps and bounds since last June when we brought them home as teeny tiny little chicks.
I know I’m not supposed to have favorites, but this one, Short Wing, is my favorite. She’s really smart – she can get out of any enclosure and figured out how to follow the cat into the house through the cat door. Imagine our surprise when we heard a fuss in the living room and there was our chicken chasing our cat around the room!!
This hen lays the biggest eggs with the brightest colored egg yolks.
Bonecrusher is the spotted one.
The spotted one lays the brown eggs – and she is the biggest hen.
Whew! Look at all these eggs!
We get three eggs a day and sometimes we don’t eat them quick enough. Looks like it’s time for some baking!
I’m not keeping up with the clues but I am plugging away on several different projects and having so much fun with all of them
Here is clue #2 complete. I love those two colors together!
All 20 squares.
WHEW!! Did all 20 squares with the ends woven in!
I was at Cost Plus World Market the other day and saw one of those kits for soup that looked pretty good.
The best part was that I could cook it in the crock pot while I was teaching. It is really nice to finish up with all my students and have dinner waiting for me with minimal work.
Doesn’t that look so yummy?!! My husband and I loved it, the kids only thought it was so-so. It is one of the things I will make once in awhile – but boy did I enjoy this soup.
Another one is complete!
Woven Crochet Square.
The lilac and the white really complement each other.
My second child just turned 17 years old!
How did this happen? Wasn’t she just 6 months old yesterday?
