  12. I knitted a short-sleeve sweater, with acrylic yarn.
  13. Now I’m wishing I hadn’t used acrylic.
  14. Too much acrylic makes me itch.
  15. I like to shop at thrift shops.
  16. I’ve been buying cotton and wool sweaters at the thrift shop and frogging them for the yarn.
  17. I just finished my first and last attempt at dyeing yarn.
  18. I tried and tried, but I couldn’t get that yarn to look how I wanted it.
  19. I spent hours and hours yesterday untangling that darn yarn, and briefly considered giving up and throwing it away.
  20. I decided, since it was cashmere, to keep going until it was done.
  21. I’m glad I did; it doesn’t look as bad now as it did before.

  28. I would rather be on this site than go empty the dishwasher.
  29. Today I did organize and put away some of the yarn I got from the sweaters I frogged, so I don’t feel so lazy.
  30. I’ve even gotten my husband in on the frogging. He seems to like it, too. It’s therapeutic.
  31. I was designing a wool skirt, but I didn’t like the way it was looking, so I frogged it.

Welcome to Blogland! :waving:

Welcome to KH and the blogs! :yay:

Well, I finished the second sock in a pair for my 3 year old daughter today. She’s very happy to have her new socks. This was my first attempt at using two different colored yarns. The socks are white, with pink short-row heels and toes. Very cute! I made a mistake on the first one; I used the pink yarn from the toe to do the kitchener on top; I should have used the white from the body of the sock. I decided it wasn’t such a big deal, so I didn’t redo it; I just did the second sock the other way. I don’t think anyone will notice. :teehee: Grace didn’t.

I do socks from the cuff down, and I like short-rows instead of heel-flap-and-gussets. I think, on the next pair of socks I make, I’ll try something other than a basic rib for the cuff. Any suggestions for something more interesting, but still fairly easy? I’m still a beginner.

They sound really cute! You’ll have to take a photo and post it in What’cha Knittin’!

Welcome to Blog land!:muah: We have a lot in common. I have two girls that I homescool and I also love to knit. Imagine that! :teehee: What curriculum do you use for homeschool? We use A Beka, the library, the internet, and what ever else I can use from our daily life. My DH is from Houston, which is where all of his relatives still live. I grew up in South Dakota and we moved back here 11 year ago to be closer to my parents who have passed away. I would like to move back to Texas to be closer to family even if it is the in-laws. That’s a long story that I won’t bore you with. I can’t wait to get to know you better. Once again, welcome to the KH blog land family.

We’re very eclectic when it comes to curricula. We use Math-U-See, and Pearables’ Home Economics. Other than that, I sort-of just make up what we need. My oldest is first-grade age; I’ve been homeschooling her since preschool. I’m just starting with my middle child; she’s three, so we’re not doing much yet, just learning letters and such.

It’s great to “meet” another homeschooler! :slight_smile:

[COLOR=“Purple”]I am also new to this site and somewhat new to knitting.
I too am a home schooling mom of just one at home.
We use A Beka and what every else we can use to make things
fun and interesting. It’s exciting to me to have found this site.
I am new to this type of Forum as well. I’ve never joined a
site like this before.
I have just been doing a lot of reading on this site. You all are
very incouraging to me.[/COLOR]
Prayers to you, Melissa
