Finally! At last! I have finished a pillow that I started A YEAR AGO. Pillows are pretty easy, you know? I started it and got about halfway done, then got sidetracked, and then sidetracked some more, and then blown way off-course... and before I knew it, a year had gone by.
Finally, I was looking over my Ravelry projects page, and I realized I was quite tired of looking at the same old projects, all in various stages of "progress." I was ruthlessly honest with myself, deleting / frogging projects I just know I'm never going to finish, or in which I have lost interest.
However, I resolved to FINISH one of them, dammit.
So I selected this pillow. And yes, I finished it over the weekend.
It all began with this box full of lovely, soft, shiny Naturally Caron Country yarn, a blend of acrylic and merino wool.
As usual with my projects, I was just playing around with color, and making Attic 24's little garden grannies, and decided to make a pillow for myself.
Things were going pretty well, until I ran out of the ivory color. That alone sidetracked me for a week or so, even though you can easily get this yarn at the big box stores!
And then school started, and Christmas appeared suddenly and any number of other excuses not to finish it... but this weekend, I persevered. The pillow has a split personality - cool sea colors on one side...
Colorful florals on the other!
I think I prefer the floral side, but I'm sure my husband likes the other side. So we both win. And I get to transfer yet another Unfinished Project to my Finished list. Yay!
