We’ve been engaged in a knitting extravaganza.
Our oldest daughter learned how to finger knit at her homeschool class at church (thanks Mrs. Jamison!). Now she’s taught the rest of us and we’ve got quite the collection of mini-scarves.
Following this, I was inspired to pick up my knitting, which had been relegated to the back of the closet, waiting for halfway coherent brain cells to pick it up and start again.
After two trips to JoAnn Fabrics (too much fun), I’ve knitted a few pairs of legwarmers and sewn (gasp) a few as well. My mom helped with the sewing and it is a very rewarding thing to do!
Plus, we discovered knitting looms, which are the same concept as finger knitting, only of varying sizes. Eliza and Elianna (and even Seth, on occasion) have been able to figure these out fairly well!
So, we will be off to our church’s craft boutique come mid-November to try and sell some of our creations! Eliza has sold 4 of hers so far and earned money to buy her own yarn. What fun! A real-life math lesson! Does that mean we get to skip regular math for the day? Methinks not..
If you have any interest in stackable mini-scarves or leg warmers, you know where to go! ;)
