First up: Lady Lovelace
It is no secret that Teva Durham is one of my favourite knitting designers. I love her creative bent on design! And so when I saw one of her patterns in Knitty I HAD to knit it! And so I did.

Today also marks the end of our official school year. This is the first time I have not gotten everyone done with their progress, but working full time for most of the school year sort of puts a dent in your productivity.
Jaxom will finish his first year of high school today, Azia has a bit of work to finish Caleb is doing fine and Julian will be sliding solidly into the 3rd grade level of all classes. So the little guys will be at the same level next year. I plan to spend some time this summer seeing what is holding my little Julian back in reading and seeing what we can do about it.
