Pillow No. 1


The other day I mentioned that I had started exploring the world of audiobooks & podcasts because I had taken up knitting again. I am making couch cushions. I am not at all a craft-y interior decorator type. In fact I have an extremely high tolerance for mess and grime. But these cushions are so nasty that even I find them offensive. So I got my knitting stuff out of deep storage and found a fun pattern: knitted in the round which I love; with chunky yarn which I also love; with cables on the front and seed stitch on the back which I also love; and the pattern lends itself very well to tweaking which I love the most. My plan is to make 6 cushions, each with a different cable pattern. Or if not 6, then as many as I can until my yarn runs out.

So, the first one is done, yay! I just need to sew the buttons on the back flap and sew up the bottom seam. I swear I will finish it before starting the next one. :-)
