Currently going on in our home....

This is our last week with our best friends before they move to Fl so I will be away again this week but thought I'd put up a quick post,again.

Dollhouse play by K:



Finished knitting up socks for K with yarn I dyed myself.This was the 1st time I ever tried dying my own. I used kool-aid as dye in orange,pink lemonade and strawberry on o-wool 2-ply yarn.







I FINALLY got around to replacing that rocking horse's tail! If you remember this horse was a thrift store find last summer for a couple bucks. I bees waxed him way back then but only now did the tail. I used some O-wool yarn in chocolate.
you can see what his tail looked like originally here:

and yes k dressed herself!

Wow! I love the socks! The colors are beautiful. I am sorry your friend is moving, that is so tough. My best friend moved to Oklahoma! It is an adjustment for sure...luckily the internet makes the distance feel a little closer.

We are the only waldorf family in our town, the closest school is more than an hour away...I keep it up in our home because it is important to us and gain inspiration from the blogosphere (thanks to you and waldorf mama) and constant reading (when I'm not knitting!)!

Check out my family blog anytime!
Yours,
Kim
