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!!
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!!
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!
