i wanted to make something to use up scrap yarn and ask for a few donations from friends. i have been in a bit of a funk and this pillow was so much fun to work on! each yarn had a different feeling, somwhat like my moods lately. it now sits in the soon to be babys room and my friends dont know they were a special part of it! the front is just knit up in various st patterns from reverse st to purl and the back is done in seed st. i used a 16x16 form for the inner.

well, it has been some time since I have added to the blog. lost my camera and just getting around to posting again. i'm excited. i have a few projects i am proud of, the octopus which is great for using up scrap yarn, and my baby snuggly made from blu sky alpaca.
i am due at the end of jan so a good deal of baby wear has been on the needles.
it has been a very stressful few months and knitting seems to bring a somewhat clear head for me. my workouts have slowed way down(although i managed to make the cover of Masters national running) and i was 6 months pregnant! so knitting for me has filled a void where i normally find peace.
