knit one, twirl too!

the twirly yarn has been a fun new find of mine.  Most of the past few months I have had knitting needles in hand.  The yarn is pretty much "self-twirling!" all you have to do is cast on 4 or 5 stitches and knit until you feel the scarf is long enough!  Cast off and you have a lightweight scarf!  Sophie, my ALMOST 4th grader says people on the bus really love hers!  They all said they would wear one! Hey, a bus-full of kiddos can't be wrong!  pics below for your viewing pleasure!!!!

My loving family modeling scarves! Clementine pup is very patient. thanks family!!!

Fat Quarters

See all the beautiful Fat Quarters all in a row!  It is pretty easy to fold them all neat and tidy. If you want to know how to organize your stash-- all you need to do is follow the instructions below.
 1. Fold in half with salvage edge at the top.
 2. bring sides to center and iron
 3. fold left over right
 4. bring up bottom third of the fabric
 5. fold down top third of fabric and tuck into the pocket made by the bottom third.
6. DONE!
