Hey, I’ve finished something else!

Wow – two things in two weeks (in fact, three – just wait til tomorrow!). This Christmas thing is working, I say, working! (did that sound convincing? inside I’m starting to freak out ever so slightly…)

Here is my nephew L’s cushion:

Pattern: from Erika Knight’s Simple Knits for Cherished Babies. It is about 45cm x 45cm, which is a good size for a child’s cushion I think.
Yarn: Rowan all seasons cotton 5x50g balls. Can’t remember the shade – the photos are fairly true to colour. Lovely to knit with.
Sticks: 4.5mm straights (pattern recommended 4mm, but you know, the tension issue)

Time: This is a quick knit – the Rowan really zips along. But I finished the knitting back at Easter (I think it took about 2 weeks), finally blocked it about a month ago, and then sewed up on Sunday night.
What I learnt on this project: Very straightforward project, no modifications – although now that I’ve sewn it up, I might have made the flap at the back crossover more, I think it will gape a bit. I’m also thinking about adding some type of tie or button closure just to be sure – the flap is not as tight as I’d like it to be. But overall, I’m very happy with this.
