Third cushion cover in the collection…

Hello there.

So here’s the start of the third cushion cover in the “Seaside” collection.

I’ll be writing a pattern for this cushion cover also.  It’s going to be FREE so stay tuned!! 😀

I have a long drive into work now that we’ve moved, and I’ve been very inspired by some wildflowers I’ve seen growing along the sides of the county roads.

Here’s the colour palette of my next collection of cushion covers.

I have ideas in my mind of how I would like the cushions covers to look, but I don’t know yet how to bring my ideas to life, but I’ll figure it out!!

Off to finish this last cushion cover so I can get started on the new collection.

Happy knitting!

Cushion pattern…

My “Horizon” cushion cover pattern is now available for sale over at loveknitting.com.

I created it to go with the “Lost At Sea” cushion cover.   I used 100% Rico cotton.  I just LOVE this yarn! It knits up so well.

Such a great simple weekend project for the beginner knitter!

Happy knitting!

Cushion #2 finished…

Hi there.

I managed to finish my cushion this weekend.

Here it is!

I had initially thought that the natural end with the navy stripe would be the top, but when I placed it next to the first cushion I designed, it didn’t quite look right.  So, I turned it over, and viola, I love it!!

The “Horizon” pattern will be coming soon.

Happy knitting!

Second in the set…

Hi there!

I just wanted to pop in and give you a peek at the second cushion cover in the set I’m designing.  I just have to finish sewing up the sides and pop in a cushion!

I call this one “Horizon” and I’ll be writing a pattern for it also.

Once I have this cushion completed, I’ll share some photos of it along with the first cushion I made.

Happy knitting and enjoy your weekend!

So busy…

We’ve been so busy lately trying to sell our house; cleaning everyday, trying to get everyone out for showings and looking for a new house for ourselves, that, of course, my knitting has taken a back seat.  But thankfully part of that craziness is over as we sold our house last week, and now we just have to find a house for ourselves to buy (which isn’t easy AT ALL, but that would be a whole new blog in itself! LOL!).

So, I’m almost done the blanket from the last post and the second cushion of a set of 3 I’m trying to create. I’m hoping to get the pattern written for the first cushion I made.  I have it scribbled out, but now have to make it legible for everyone else! 😉

But here’s the first cushion.  I’m calling it “Lost at Sea”.

Hopefully next week I will be able to tell you the pattern is complete!!

Back to looking for a new home!!

the wedding present…

Hello everyone!

I’ve completed the second cushion of the set for the wedding present for my co-worker.

Here’s the second cushion using the same colours as in the first cushion – chocolate brown and cream.  I created the “heathered” look by knitting with the 2 coloured strands at the same time.

For this cushion cover I used just your basic garter stitch (knitting every row).  I used US size 9 needles and casted on 60 stitches of a DK weight yarn.  I knit with the two colours of yarn at the same time and continued until the piece measured 30″ in length.  The finished cushion is 16″X16″.

Here are the two cushions together.

Well off to find a box to put them in so I can wrap them up and bring them to work with me tomorrow!

Happy knitting!

mr. + mrs.

Hi there!

In my last post I mentioned I wanted to make a little wedding gift for one of the girls at work who is getting married at the end of April.

Since I’ve been on a bit of a cushion craze, I thought I would make her a set of cushions.

Here’s the first one in the set.

I plan on making a second cushion to compliment this one by using the same two colours – cream and dark brown.  I’m going to mix the two colours together to create a “heathered” look.

I’ll share photos of the set when I’m all done!

Happy knitting!
