Inspired by a lovely post over on the creJJTion blog, I decided to pick up my crochet hook and make a cute granny square pillow for the living room. I've already ran out of the white scrap yarn I had in my stash, so i'm going to need to pick some more up before I can continue this project (along with a pillow insert.) I'm thinking of crocheting one more row of the flowers, then I'll knit up the back of the pillow in with the white.
I just love the texture of the petals. As you can see, I had some leftover alpaca yarn from the Dovetail Cowl, so i'm using that to sew up the squares- I think it brings the project together nicely with a punch of color. You can check out details of the project and the pattern by checking out my Ravelry page.
As I wait to get the white yarn and pillow insert, i'm going back to work on my Noro Blanket, at least do one hexagon a day. Its worked on double pointed needles though, which i loathe so I doubt this new found energy to work on it will last. Other than knitting, i'm trying to think of something fun to do with the girls today. We usually have a playdate today but sadly it didn't work out this morning. Though fresh biscuits did seem to make Evelyn and Flora feel better.
Any ideas? Two cups of coffee and my mind is still drawing a blank.
