On this fine UFO Thursday, instead of knitting, I took my UFO Must Have Cardigan and turned it into two lovely pillows.
This is the second time I’ve taken a project that I’ve lost interest in and turned them into pillows. I love this concept! Just like my St. Brigid-sweater-turned-pillow I think I will really enjoy looking at these two pillows in my guest bedroom.
I’ve noticed recently that Aran Pillows are showing up in various catalogs that I receive in the mail and they all have a startling price tag attached to them. It gives me great satisfaction to know that my pillows are significantly cheaper (significantly) and have knitting love poured into them.
I’m done with making UFO pillows for the time-being. I contemplated making ALCEA into a pillow but Anne encouraged me to give it a good steaming before making that decision. She, being the wise woman that she is, knew that as I played with that fair isle fabric and those lovely colors I would fall in love with it all over again. So, starting next week, my UFO Thursdays will be dedicated to ALCEA.
