The Flock

Who am I?

I am wife to The Man. Mama to the brood. Homeschooler. Homebirther. Organic gardener. Wanna be quilter. Sometime seamstress. Everyday bread baker. I am the boo-boo kisser and the baby nurser. I also cloth diaper and I try to be a good house-keeper.

Above all, I am a Jesus follower. In my spare time I knit and eat chocolate.

I am also a blogger. When I created woolandchocolate, it was on a whim. I was curious to see where it would go. Now I have a pretty good following, I have made some wonderful new friends, and blogging has become part of my morning ritual alongside my cup of coffee. This blog has become motivation to finish what I start and has been the jumping off point for starting new things.

Allow me to introduce you to the flock.

The ManIMG_2009-resized
My Prince Charming. My hero. For twenty years I have been married to this guy, following him around the world and back. It’s been wonderful.

The Bookworm

My first born is such a talented young lady – an amazing artist, a great story teller, and my first arrow released into the world. Currently serving the Lord in Israel.

The Boy

For 15 years this guy was the only boy in a sea of sisters. Now a young man he has made us so proud. He keeps very busy with his welding apprenticeship and his studies. 

The Dancing Queen

My third child approaches life with passion, optimism, and enthusiasm. She loves dancing and gymnastics and is so very helpful to me, always serving with a smile.

The Princess

My Princess is approaching the teen years too fast! This girl is oozing maternal instinct and has such a nurturing spirit.

The Munchkin

Part girlie girl, part tomboy, and the best knitter in the bunch! She loves to sit with me and knit and chat and is not afraid to try challenging new things. 

The Fraggle


Sassy and saucy and full of energy, my Fraggle keeps me on my toes.

The Blessing


Raising The Blessing has been my great honor. She has lived up to her blog nickname, and is nothing less than a blessing. Down syndrome doesn’t slow this girl down one bit. And although her speech is still a little hard to understand, she has no problem with communicating her desires. She is clever and sweet and funny.

Little Man


A very busy toddler, this little dude delights us all with his boyish antics. I forgot how fun little boys can be and I am so thankful that I get to raise another one.

  2. I found your blog through today’s Thread Theory posting for mending socks and you ask what do I think??? Your method is brilliant and beautiful, thank you so much! I’m a sock knitter, love very colorful, plain, or patterned, comfortable socks, many in (fake) fair isle patterns and I never thought I could bear to think about wearing heels les in them. Your mending is as pretty as the sock, thank you, thank you.
