Predictable Patterns


Well, I've found a nice "hold-me-over" until I feel like starting a more complex project. I'm knitting another  cuddle up cushion. I have about ten skeins of Jaeger merino extra-fine merino, which, unfortunately, is discontinued, that I bought three years ago in Santa Monica. I knit a baby sweater out of some of it last year. I think I'd planned to use it in a blanket originally, but I'm happy to use it for another cushion cover.
The back is just a mixture of seed stitch and straight stitch, which may not be exciting, but is very relaxing. I love having something I can just pick up and knit without having to think about it much.

I love using up the stash projects.

At my house, coffee cosies are being knitted at a prodigious rate.

I saw a beautiful seed stitch sweater at a yarn shop today. I'm trying to figure out how to make it for much less money than what they wanted at the shop. I love all the stitches in your pillow cover!

Comfy knits are always good, especially when you're tired, but still want to do something.

I love those kinds of knits, too, especially for tv wathcing.

I've always wanted to go back to Santa Monica, after spending 5 days there 10 years ago ..... and now I want to go even more, after clicking on your link!!

I've been to Wildfiber as well! Ok, it is pretty close to me, relatively speaking. I think about an hour so drive. The pillow looks quite nice, love that color green!
