Cabled Pillow

Here's the big reveal of the project I made with the fantastic cable pattern I found on Ravelry.  A purple pillow!

I truely love these cables.  They are fantastic to knit and look wonderful.

For the backside of the pillow, echoed the stripes from my first knit sweater.



The pillow was a Christmas gift to the ever-wonderful Pam from Gingerbread Snowflakes.  She is such a great source of positivity and inspiration in the world and I wanted to do something extra nice for her.

I also included a matching ornament made from the same yarn and plastic canvas that I cut into a heart.  The choice of plastic canvas is a nod to Pam's daughter, Diane of Crafty Pod who is a plastic canvas evangelist and inspired me with this ornament post.

Your projects are always so beautiful, I really wish I had your talent. :)
Also, I just wanted to say thank you for the postcard you sent. I tried to email you, but my email system kept telling me the email address couldn't be recognized. I'll be sure to post back as soon as I can.
Again such a beautiful pillow case. :) I love seeing your blog posts pop up. :)

Even though I am a little late in finding this, wow! I am so glad you have shared the gifts you sent to me in this space as I had a terrible time getting the colors to render well - especially the heart - and they are all in my favorite colors! Every single stitch in the pillow cables, the stripes and the heart are perfect and serve not only to remind me that I am cared for but also serve as inspiration to improve my own stitches.

Besides friendship, I have found in this space a warm, talented and inspiring woman who so generously shares her time and creative genius. We are all richer for it and I thank you. AND wish you Happy Valentine's Day!
