PILLOW POWER . Memoir .

I have been on a knitting binge for the past few months. Earlier I showed the afghan I made for my son, my soon-to-be daughter-in-law and their new baby girl Everly (see “All Things New” post Oct.30, 2014). Since then, I have been busily working with exquisite natural, undyed fleece from Italy – a super chunky yarn that I have worked into five decorator pillows.  They were Christmas presents for our five fabulous children.

My Knitted Pillows with Borgo de Pazzi 100% wool - untreated, natural sheep fleece.

This wool is beautiful to work with. Everyone appeared happy with their gifts.

Now I am allowing the mental wheels to begin turning so new projects will result. A few ideas are percolating – such is the creative process.

Happy 2015 to each of you who follows my blog. Thank you for your past support and please continue to check in and leave a comment or two, so I know I am not just posting for moi.

Enjoy and all the best!

  1. Where do you purchase your yarn? I’ve been looking for something similar and am afraid to spend the money and not be what I want. I love your work!

    1. Thanks so much for reading my post and for your lovely words. I bought the wool in Barrie On at True North Yarn.

      I used a size 19 needle but another time would go down a size because with time the stitches stretched somewhat and now they look too open for my liking.
