It gets a little crazy at times….

It is a little busy here with the kids, the farm, homeschooling and the businesses.   People ask me all the time “How do you do it?”   My answer is always the same.   Sometimes I don’t!   Sometimes the house is a mess, the kids have macaroni and cheese three days in a row and I spend a lot of time multitasking during the homeschool hours.   Today I am desperately hoping to get the house in some kind of order, dye and reskein some yarn and dig around in the gardens.   We will see how much of that I actually get done.   My biggest problem is my horrible lack of organization.  I need an intervention!!


Well on to the crafty stuff!  

This incredibly yummy merino yarn will turn into my new Apple Blossom colorway.


Remember the beautiful red shawl I am knitting?   Yeah, well….I am knitting.it.wrong.    Turns out I was supposed to be using size 15 needles.   I really should have double checked before I started and completely dropped the ball on that one.    At any rate I get to keep the nearly finished one and the new one will work up so fast on size 15 needles!  Besides, this yarn is really nice to knit.


On the Rav group we are doing a knitalong using the lovely Subversive Skull Cap as our pattern.  We have just cast on and would love to have you join in.   (Did I mention there will be contests?)


And! there is another update coming for the Farm Store.  I have also added a few items to the Etsy shop.
