    I'm prone to being a scatterbrain, so I try to make a short list of things to accomplish each month (lest I have 27 different non matching socks).

    Same as last month: Sleep more. Study more. Knit more. Sleep more.

Pillows – Done Knitting!

Posted by Amber on July 7, 2006

While in NYC it wasn’t all fun and games … actually it was, and much knitting was accomplished. I finished the final two squares on my sari silk pillows! They aren’t sewn together yet, or backed/lined, but I think in the end they go together pretty well.

The first square, that was such a different color from the rest of the yarn in the ball, is in the upper right hand corner. I could get one more square from my leftovers and that square would have more blue in it, but I think it works fine.

The pink squares! Why couldn’t I have three pink pillows?

This pillow brings the other two together, pinks, reds, and some blues thrown in.

Now I have to sew the squares together, get some fabric for the back of the pillow, and add a pillow. I think I’m going to look for a Pillow form tomorrow after work, along with the fabric for the backing. Easier than sewing and stuffing my own pillow.
