A cushion and a knitting bag
Another cushion this week I first decided to make a Celtic cable knit 20" cushion as I made a 16" cable cushion last week. I found a lovely Celtic cable design and added 20 stitches each side then found this was wider than needed so I decided to make a bolster cushion. I have used Kingcole chunky in acrylic. I also have polyester stuffing and muslin I will make the inside with it. I have added more stripes to my crochet afghan I am crocheting four loops to each stitch for a thicker warmer throw it takes longer I don't mind I do about two stripes a day. It will take roughly six weeks or a bit longer I estimate to finish, each stripe is about 1" It will become a 6' square throw. I am really pleased how my quilted sheep knitting bag turned out!
