It's What I've been working on Wednesday! Infinity scarf & t-shirt quilt

I have been buying t-shirts at the thrift stores with themes my son likes for a while now. I finally had enough to put together into this "quilt" for him. He loves it! It may look like it's wonky at the bottom, but it is actually perfect... the wind was blowing while I was trying to take pics. If you have a 5 year old boy, a lot of the squares probably look familiar to you ;). This one with a Star Wars/dog theme is our favorite!:

Don't worry, I did get around to working with wool too this week! I used Suzannah's tutorial (minus the ironing, because I have been incredibly lazy this week) to make an infinity scarf. I used a super soft merino, and it is fabulous... much better than my bad lighting self portrait in the bathroom mirror pictures portray. It will be great for all the spring afternoons at the park watching Jack play while I try to stay warm :)

ETA: I was having a sense of deja vu as I made the infinity scarf, like I had made it before. It finally dawned on me that I made this the same way as I made my cowls last year, only this one is longer. Mystery solved!

Thanks, Anne!

Lol, Jennifer. You know you did a good job when a 5 year old boy thinks it's "cool"!
