I’ve been simply DYING to work with some lovely BRIGHT colors lately. Everything else I’m working on seems quite muted. A baby blanket in white and soft colors, a secret project in off-white, even my knitted cowl isn’t Bright, though it is, at least, colorful. So I’ve been wanting to work on something bright. But I don’t have a lot of Time, especially since 2 of those projects have deadlines.
What I do have is a pillow form that I’ve had for ages. I originally intended to sew a cover for it. I bought it before I learnt to crochet…thinking a sewn cover would be easy. And maybe it is but I’ve yet to try…][p\(Sebastian had to say hello).
So I finally decided on a Granny Square cover. Couldn’t be easier. Granny squares are super easy. I just need to make a couple sides and sew them together. I can do that. But what color? I’ve realized recently that I have a LOT of things that are blue and green with a bit of orange (and sometimes yellow) thrown in. And I love these colors, this combination. So I decided that my pillow color would be these colors too. You can see what I bought below. It’s Caron Simply Soft. It’s 100% acrylic, but that’s fine…because it Is soft.
I started it last night and love it already!! Now…to find the pillow form amongst all the boxes…
