Hi, I just found this site in my search for knitting patterns online. I asked in one of the forums about a legwarmer pattern and got a response right away! Wow! Thanks! Anyway, I am a stay at home, homeschooling mom, I love to be here with my children. My mom taught me to knit when a was about 6, I left it alone for a long time and then when I was in college rediscovered it. I enjoy the peace knitting brings me and I love to make things for my children.

Hi Soledad
I too am a stay at home mom - well I work at home as a potter. But my girlie gets to work with me and we plan on homeschooling her. I'm glad to hear that you still have time for knitting.

Interesting screen name! :-)
I'm home-schooled! In 9th grade. Lotsa fun reading about those Romans, but they were awfully bloody.....

Well, no wonder you're so precoscious(sp?). I would have loved to homeschool my daughter, but I don't have the drive or the energy. I also think the socialization is important for her, because she's so shy.

Welcome Soledad-- As you can tell it's a pretty friendly bunch here :)

And ditto to what Barbara said-- I think homeschooling is *great* for kids-- but I think it takes a special person to pull it off and stay sane. S. Eliz, you are lucky to have such parents :)

Welcome Soledad. I'm also a homeschooling mom. I have 2 kids still at home a 10 yr old son and 5 yr old daughter. I actually knit while doing school work with my 5 yr old. Helps me stay focused and patient.
I am new here but have found myself here most mornings. It's a nice way to start the day.

Welcome, Soledad. I stay home with 3 girls (my official title to myself is Home and Family Manager!) Actually, I only stay home with 2. The oldest is in school most of the day, as I do not have to patience to homeschool. I admire those who do, however. Welcome here. Glad you found KR. Happy Knitting!

Hi Soledad, I'm new here too. It's a friendly place!
I don't homeschool my 4 kids, but did homeschool the oldest one for kindergarten, and the 2nd one for a few months due to bullying. Now the youngest is in grade one and it's soooo quiet around here. A friend homeschools her 8 kids, and I have to say, it takes a special kind of person indeed to do it full time. My hat goes off to you! I'll bet your little ones are already starting their own needlework projects, right?
LOL
