Ok, back to crochet.
I bought new bedding for my bed when I moved into this house in March and wanted to make a throw to put on the end of the bed, or maybe on a chair. I started working on one pattern and although I loved the stitch, I didn't think it 'fit' the style, so started another and was going strong for a while.
Life got in the way (see above) and I haven't worked on it lately, but really wanted to add something to my bed to break up the color some. I remembered I had a pillow that I wanted to re-cover, so thought maybe I could crochet a cover for it with the yarn I was going to use for the throw.
I found the pillow at the thrift shop for $1 or $1.50 and it's in perfect shape, but of course the design doesn't work for anything. I was thinking of covering it with a solid cotton fabric first (I'm sure I've got an old pillowcase or something that would work), and then crochet the 'pretty' cover to go over that.
I haven't decided on what crochet stitch to use yet, but this is the yarn I plan on using.
It's cool and rainy today, so I thought it would be a perfect time to pick up this crochet project and make something happen. With so much other junk happening in my life, I thought a small crochet project that wouldn't take long to finish might be just the thing I need.
