FO: Aran Pillow

With yarn from the swap!

Very cool! What yarn did you use?

Nice work, it looks awsome :cheering:

Laura - Red Heart Super Saver Carrot! Got it in the KH Yarn Swap last year - along with oodles of the most luxurious to-drool-for yarn you can imagine! It was sort of a running joke between my swap Buddy and me, but I promised I would use it, and I think it worked pretty well for this. It has good stitch definition - wish the pictures were better - and will stand up to the use it will get.

VERY pretty!!!

nice job
I M threateneing to make a swatch or pillow out of Marabrigo for my Baby sister so she can fondle it in her sleep too
its SO yummy, and she just laughs at me when i tell her


That looks great! I love the color.

Is this the pillow from Canadian Living? I made both the pillow and matching afghan for my mom for Christmast–in an off white color as requested. They came out lovely.

So nice to see it in a fun color like that! :cheering:

Yes, that’s the one. I don’t think I’d have the patience to make the afghan. Kudos to you!

I think I’m going to open it up and put in a larger form.

Ok I’ll let you in on a secret: the afghan was supposed to be for her birthday last year (in FEBRUARY!) and I got so sick of the pattern I wanted to puke and had to put it down for months. :oops: :roflhard:
Hehe…so I finished it up for Christmas this year and added the pillow out of guilt. :happydance:

I put a larger than suggested pillow form in my covering too…it was just a little too saggy in the recommended size, I guess I knit a little loose!

That looks great! The colour is very nice; it’s so bright I think I could use it to melt the snow in my driveway. When it finally snows, of course. :thumbsup:

That is beautiful!

very beautiful!
