My parents have lived for much of their lives growing much of their own food, raising their own animals for meat, milk and eggs. They also built (and we kids got to help too!) the house we grew up in, built much of our furniture, sewed much of our clothes and so on. It definitely made me to love being able to do things on my own as well.
I found the pattern for them in this book called "Kids Knitting" by Melanie Falick. It has quite a few simple and cute knitting patterns. And even though I am not a kid I managed to follow it too. :-)
And I'm curious- Did you get ready for Y2K? Or did you even know anything about the scare associated with it?
Do you like to be prepared and do stuff yourself? Please talk with me in the comments!
this pattern next.
