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!

Knitting Blog: The Aviator Hat

Aviator Hat

I found this ADORABLE baby aviator hat pattern on Craftsy.com

The knitting pattern was only $4, and my baby NEEDS a winter hat. What a great way to help support a fellow knitter, get my hobby fix and keep my little guy warm on the noggin all in one shot!

It was a pretty simple knitting project. The pattern is really well written, and the author includes some helpful photos.

 

"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
