Holy cow I am behind! I have about 10 weeks of handwork posts to catch up on! A very busy late spring and summer in the Nielsen house, thankfully handwork helps anchor me so I will get those posts caught up!
This one is near to me. My oldest son is on a mission for our church and we are nearing the 1 year mark. He started this scarf the day he entered his training and worked on it daily until last week. A couple months before he left, I asked him if he’d like a project to work on – because you know he wouldn’t be busy enough! He asked to make this scarf from a project we saw a few years back. It was a weather scarf where you knitted a row for the weather every day for a year. Since the first one we saw, I have seen many others like this one and this one and this one. Harry’s was pretty simple: yellow for the sunny days, blue for the color bright Colorado skies, gray for the days that are dreary and green for the days he forgot and couldn’t remember what the weather was.
Being near the end of his first year, he sent it home to have me weave in the ends. Of course he is ready for another project! He told me to pick something and send it along.
Many happy handwork blessings!
So you have this super cute and amazingly bright child. This child is also too young for even Waldorf kindergarten, so what is a mom to do? Your parents are breathing down your neck and everyone wants to know why in the heck this child isn’t in a pre-k program! I am hoping this will help.
Last year I compiled the plans I used for Sariah when she was three going on four. I have been giving the plans out for those that ask, I am posting them here now so that they are easy to find.
We have an archive post that has some links that might also be helpful, it is HERE.
Remember to enjoy this time, don’t get ahead of yourself and relax. You have the gift of time.
