The Pink Sweater
Today I have a funny/sad story!
This is what can happen when you ask your children to help you with chores.....
Yesterday I bought this beautiful hand knitted sweater made out of 100% wool. I hardly ever knit things for myself so it felt even better to own something that is actually hand knitted even though it had been made by someone else. The yarn looked soft and right now I am into these wonderful thick and thin yarns which I use to design baby hats for photo props.
Last night my youngest son decided to do the laundry and for whatever still unexplained reason this new sweater was on top of my white pile. So he knows what to do with white laundry! And the rest you can imagine.....it shrunk to 1/4 of its original size. I guess this was a lesson we will never forget!
