Waldorf Grade 4, the Norse Myths Block 1

Norse Myths Books Waldorf grade 4

We’ve been busy with the Norse Myths block, one of my favourite blocks! Pictured above are a few of the resources that have been used. We use the three-day rhythm, read the story on the first day, discuss and draw on the second day and write a short synopsis on the third day.

Projects:

We braided play dough when we read about Loki and Sif’s golden hair.

Will make Rune tablets from clay in our next block.

Cook a Nordic feast.

Draw Celtic knots, form drawings. Some ideas here.

Here’s quite a nice Pinterest page for the Norse Myths.

 

Below are a few examples of what Kye’s been reading and writing. If you click on the photo, it should enlarge:)

Succulents

Succulents

I seem to have developed a love of succulents, my daughter Erin adores them and now I do too. We’ve decided to turn our old dilapidated rose garden into a succulent bed. I’m very excited, tomorrow we begin! We bought these beauties on Saturday, I’m going to try to propagate a few from them as well.

Have a great week!

Test Knit for Everett the Elephant

Everett Side

It seems to be a week for test knits! I would love to have Everett’s pattern test knitted, if you’re keen to take part, you can sign up on my Ravelry group. He is quite a large fellow, wonderful to carry around and hug. Imagine a whole rainbow of Everette’s in different colours!! The possibilities are endless:) I hope to see you on the test knit thread.

Materials:
I used approx 150 grams Nurturing Fibres aran weight wool
4.5mm / US7 circular knitting needles
20 grams of Double Knitting yarn for the tusks
4mm circular needles for knitting the tusks

Skill:

Knitting in the round.

Size:
Using worsted yarn and 4.5mm needles you could expect Everett to measure:
Height (foot to top of head): 24cm /9.5 ”
Length (width at widest pointl):39.5cm / 15.5”

Start date: 29th of January
End date: 12th of February

Have a lovely weekend!

Celtic Earth Hat Test Knit

Hello friends,

I’ve just finished designing the Celtic Hat pattern, I just love the electric shade of this yarn, it’s a worsted weight from Mamma Jude’s and most wonderful of all, it’s naturally dyed!

The pattern is knitted in the round and is pretty straight forward. I used about 80 grams of wool for this project.

If you’d like to join in the test knit, I have 5 spaces left, go here to my Ravery group and respond in the test knit thread 🙂

Happy knitting!

Linda
