About

Kristen O'Hara A Little Homie

 

"To grow ever closer to God, to learn to decipher His voice, and to follow His command."

I wrote this mission many years ago, and it has been my focus ever since. God's prompting has been the central basis for our decisions to homeschool our children and to sell our house and start an urban farm.

We continue to grow and are seeking out ways to become more self-sustained, prosperous and fruitful.

Thank you for sharing in our journey!

Knitting

 

I have recently decided to place special focus on my knitting blog. Knitting has been a passion of mine for over 14 years. I am continually looking for new knitting patterns, checking out new yarns and designing my own knitted garments.

Knitting has been a great comfort to me, and it is a wonderfully, relaxing hobby. Thanks for allowing me to share my joy of my craft with you!

Thrift Store Sweater Socks

These, my friends, are my sweater socks!

I bought a cheap sweater at the thrift store, and turned it into a lovely pair of warm winter socks. Upcycling and knitting...made for a fun and memorable craft experience!

 

 

"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made..."      Psalm 139:13-14
