Christmas knitting - Baby Thor

My big brother is expecting his first baby...we have named him Baby Thor. I knitted this from Mirasol Hacho in Deep Blue Ocean. I love this pattern. I have it up on with the pattern link.

Christmas knitting - Grandma Pam

We are winding up Christmas handwork....we are a little behind, lol...these are for my mom. Lala and I both worked on these. I will post the mitts pattern later, it was just something simple I came up with, easy skills, yarn overs and ribbing, these were done flat. Lala made the leg warmers, again super simple two inches of two by two ribbing and the rest is all plain old circular knitting.  The last piece was a headband, again way easy. I am so blessed to have her knitting with me! Oh and wash cloths! So easy but so wonderful.

Christmas Yarn

I love yarn. Two places I could not work...bakery and yarn store.  This beautiful Christmas gift is from my dearest friend, author of one of my favorite blogs . She knows my heart! She couldn't have picked a better gift. Thank you dear friend!

Now what should I make?

the Sunday spread

I love Sunday. Lala and I were craving the sweetness of summer this week and the grocer provided. Watermelon. The Dr. made honey muffins. I love Sunday.

An afternoon of window stars

We love to make these. They are great for the big kids for the geometry aspect and so much fun. It was a great way to spend a wintery afternoon.

I had Lala and He-Man helping me.

Washing woolens

I know some people think washing woolens is a hassle, but to me there is a certain sweetness about seeing a sink full of pieces that have love stitched through them. Always brings a smile to my face.

Needing felting with Three Fold Utah

We are having so much fun being part of this budding Waldorf community. We started Three Fold Utah with the intent to have classes at our property. We started in October with a Waldorf 101 type class. Last week we had a needle felting class and I was inspired by Lala's participation in a children's theater production of Rapunzel. Lala made the little one for her teacher.

Now I need to get busy on a ball for Baby Bird.


I have such a full (but WONDERFUL) plate... I am not even sure I can keep this blog up.  I mean I keep the business one up just fine, but this one is sort of play. The Doctor, He-Man and Lala all wanted to start blogging this year for part of their schooling - they have inspired me a bit to get back to sharing who we are in everyday practice, not just who we are in business. So... let's see how it goes.  I have so many pictures to share of what we do each day.  I walk this walk just like any other Waldorf mom... planning lessons, dealing with children that aren't always cooperative, a baby that doesn't always sleep when I want her to and much more. Here goes.
