Call me a little enthusiastic.
The fundraising over, my bedroom clean, the dream knitting chair now home I dove head first into some new knitting.
Maybe a little too enthusiastic.
I've already run out of yarn (for this project anyway). :( I ordered another skein of the Darn Good Yarn Sari Ribbon in Bone, but my lumbar pillow for the dream knitting chair won't be finished until that sucker comes in the mail. I'm very happy with this project. It's a quick knit based on my own simple pillow cover design, which I'll publish here once I'm done with it. It's the perfect thing to do with recycled sari ribbon, or any ribbon yarn really. I don't like the feel of ribbon yarn for scarves or hats, but for home stuff it works really well. I can't wait for it to be finished.
Big needles and big yarn, usually the last thing I want to wear, but it looks great on pillows. I did one side pink and started the other in "Bone", which is an ivory white with little hints of pink. Kind of reminds me of Gwen Stefani's wedding dress.
Sometimes the knitting just finds you. After all this crazy I just needed something quick and creative. It feels good to be back.
