Well my blog is called Knittinghomeschoolmom. So far it has been mostly knitting. Well, here comes the homeschooling. A large part of my curriculum arrived today so I thought this was a good opportunity to take a photo. They took over the entire livingroom. Do we ever have our hands full this year. We are all looking forward to the comming year. Even my 4 yr old wants to start so we will be doing little bits with him.
We will also be accessing the library quite a bit.
Needless to say, my knitting time will deminish quite a bit while I am teaching. I will try to keep up.(g)

Feather and fan shawl from GOL

Well I have finished this never ending shawl. By the end there were about 2000 stitches per round. Took me about an hour per round. I thought this would be a bigger shawl but it turned out quite small. Too small for me so I am giving it away to a very deserving friend.
The blocking was a pain due to the edging. Each little loop needed to be pinned out.
You can see the colour change when I changed skeins {the joy of hand painted}. I alternated the skeins for a while to ease the transition. I think it looks pretty cool this way. Let's say I did it on purpose.
Enjoy the photos.
