Mother of seven daughters, homeschooler for 15 years with 10 to go! My husband is a carpenter/joiner and we are currently living in the midst of a renovation and have been for the last 2 yrs. The girls all pitch in and help with the building, roofing, plastering and painting and enjoy the priviledge of exercising creativity and dominion. Knitting is one of my outlets for use of colour and design. I'm thrilled every time I master a new technique and my husband is as excited as I when things work. He flies by the seat of his pants in his work too!
5 Years on. we've sold the house, been to Chile and back to help rebuild after the earthquake and are now living in a late 19th century sandstone guesthouse. Still knitting, the girls and I have taken up spinning and dyeing as well. Two older girls have left home but still come home as much as possible.
