Yarn Along: School & Sweater

I'm working steadily on a yoked sweater for my daughter. It's so nice to do stockinette in the round right now. The knitting is so ordered when everything else is still a little crazy!

I'm planning our Pre-K year right now and am really excited about it. We are starting the day after Labor Day and I should be able to get the basics ready by then. I am using my usual Montessori curriculum as well as the book Twenty Six Letters to Heaven. It's a Catholic alphabet path that incorporates saints and virtues in with normal subjects. The activities are great and low prep, I think we are going to love it!

I also want to add some catechesis of the good shepherd materials but I have to make them first. That will be an ongoing project. Time to get out those glue gun/sculpey/wood painting skills and give it all I've got!

I have had a great summer but I'm looking forward to the more regular routine of school days. The kids and I all thrive under routine!

I will be sharing this on Small Things and Frontier Dreams.




  1. Lovely color way on your daughters sweater!

  2. Looking forward to hearing more about your homeschool adventures with that book, Heather. It looks like a good one.


I'd love to hear from you!
