I am wife to Jeff, homeschool mom to 8, a knit and crochet teacher and totally addicted to knitting, crocheting and other fiber arts. After knitting, crocheting and sewing my own clothing from the age of 10 on, I studied textiles & clothing in college. That lead me to 25 years of custom dressmaking and alterations work, while sewing, knitting and crocheting for my growing children. I have worked in the yarn industry for the past 3 years and have been designing my own knitting patterns. Visit my web site at Find me as DeniseInIowa on

Not much knitting going on

This weekend has been busy with other things. I did get the extra skein of yarn I needed to finish the Pelerine. I had ordered it at Hobby Lobby on Tuesday. They called Thursday night and said that it was in. It was even the same dye lot! I have been working on the bottom band tonight. Only a couple of rows to go.

I am also trying to get things organized for a sewing class that I am teaching to a bunch of homeschool children. And it is a bunch. We have one class of 10, mostly 5th and 6th graders and the other class is 15 with a wide variation from 5th to 11th grades. Fortunately I do have helpers!

We only have six, one hour sessions so we won't be able to teach very many skills but we are hoping to introduce some simple hand stitches and have them use the sewing machine for some easy projects.
I still need to make up some samples of the projects and gather all of the tools we might need. I may not get much knitting done in the next few days...
