Often in blogs and other journals, the task of getting the writing done is just too daunting to know where to begin. And that day is today, for me. I started this blog in 2010. And as our family has grown and changed so has this blog. I started out as a knitter...a city girl plopped down on a farm in Iowa, just wanting to share great patterns and find other folks of like mind. That morphed into a wonderful journey of opening a knitting shop. Then it became a knit/spin/teach and a wonderful gathering spot. Then a few years later, we took the knitting on the road. But the farm kept calling us.....we started a farm in the Muscatine area. A big beautiful farm full of people and love and vegetables and knitting, of course. There must always be knitting...and spinning. My husbands contract at work ended and we had to make a move for work. So instead of letting the new employment dictate where we were going to live, we decided to pick the place to live and make it work. So that is exactly what we did.
And here we are....well almost..still many stories to fill in..
....I will tell you this much...Our adventures have become crazier wilder and more fun than I ever imagined our life would be! My devotion to this blog will be an ongoing journal of all that is, was and will become our next adventure. And I would love to take you with me......join us for a lifetime of zany crazy, homesteading life in Alaska.
Here's a few photos of what we have been up to.....
