Sunday at School
There was a St. Martin's Fair at Oldenburg Waldorf school this Sunday. A good reason to leave the house in this foggy November weather and to see, buy and do some crafting. The Waldorf education believes that knitting and other handwork activities stimulate intellectual development and instill a sense of achievement in the child. I love that! Knitting from first grade on! Heaven! As a fiber enthusiast it was a joy to see.

There couldn't have been a more appropriate place to knit for me today.
