I got a lot done this week! I saw a pillow with what looked like planets on it, in a magazine, and I set out to make a pillow for Jack, since he loves astronomy (he knows more about the planets than most adults do!). I made it out of black cashmere, and he couldn't stop saying how soft it was :)
I was especially proud of how my earth came out (when Jack saw it he said "great job on South America, Mama!), but I really messed up Saturn's ring (notice that I didn't include that in the close up pic... he he he).
Jack has been asking me to make him an owl, whenever he saw one, so I finally got around to that. He wanted it to be brown with rainbow wings, and had a blast making the decisions on every detail. We were both happy with the end results! We decided to add a pocket to the back for treasure storage.
I am going to be making Christmas stockings soon (it is never too early to plan for Christmas!) out of the sleeves of this red fair isle, but for now the body of the sweater was begging me to be a pillow, so I obliged! This was my first pillow, so I was very happy how it turned out.
What have you been working on this week? As always, feel free to post your recycled wool finished projects on my Facebook page... I love to see 'em!
