Hello from the other side of summer.
It's been a topsy turvy year and I'm not just talking about Corona-Panic. If something could go sideways this year it did. I've found myself with very little time for blogging, so I've begun posting on Instagram. You can find me here: @kaelyn_angelfoot for more frequent updates.
My cousin has been staying with us since May and now that we have her schooling settled, I've started preschooling the Dictator, who is now three and pestier than ever. We're using Easy Peasy as the base and adding a variety of activities from other, more hands on homeschooling blogs.
A couple of other blogs worth noting are
My Bored Toddler - Which has a large variety of activities, especially sensory bins which are a huge hit in my house.
Frugal Fun for Boys and Girls - For a lot of excellent activities with items you usually have on hand (or I have found most things I need at the dollar store).
All that is burning a lot of my time but I've still managed to get in a few stitches here and there.

I've also started a new crochet afghan for the cousin, because she "borrowed" my heavy winter afghan and I'm going to be wanting it back in a few. It'll be her Christmas present "IF" I get it completed in time.
The pattern is Wool-Eater by Sarah London. I did make a couple of adjustments. After following the pattern exactly, including hook recommendations, I changed it up. I use a 5.5mm hook instead of the recommended 4.0. I also picked up a hook with a longer shaft before the handle, because sometime there are 11 loops on the hook and my ergonomics with the short shaft made things difficult. And finally, I shortened the chain 5 to a chain 4, and I'm much happier with the result.
