My Sweet Laundry Helper




Being a busy family of six, and living on a farm, definitely makes for a lot of laundry!  It seems as though that laundry mountain will NEVER be conquered!  I do spend a lot of time in my laundry room each day.  However, whenever this cute little lady comes to be my helper, the job is ALWAYS sweeter!

Amy's Infinity Scarf




Recently, Amy began to learn how to knit.  Admittedly, she began to learn a little while ago, but got discouraged early on with it.  Over the last few weeks she has picked it up again, after being encouraged by her friend who is a talented knitter.  Amy chose this lovely variegated blue wool with metallic copper flecks, to knit her "infinity scarf".  She kept it simple and knitted the entire piece in a "knit" stitch, that way she only had to make sure to not drop stitches and work on her tension.  I think it turned out very nicely and she looks beautiful wearing it!  Well done Amy!
