I can’t even remember when I thought about knitting a pillow, or why. And knit it with fingering weight yarn at that. But here it is – my Bubble pillow!
I used self dyed yarn (Knit Picks Bare fingering weight), Easter egg color (yadayadayada).
I think the stitch pattern intrigued me, it’s from the Knitting Stitch calendar, a lacey bubble stitch. Anyway, the bubble part was fun to knit, but the stockinette stitch is deadly, boring that is. The yarn is very soft and as soon as it was all done, my head hit the pillow for a nap (na, not really). I guess I’m tired right now, wishful thinking! ;o)
I didn’t even think to the last minute how to close it. At the end I did a row of YO's and K2tog, and hoped that it would work out O.K. - and it did.
I asked Hannah to bring home some buttons, and I couldn’t have chosen any better. I like the little fake silver buttons a lot!
Bubble-licious hiding behind the chives!

I spied this Robin's nest in a bush out the front door. Here's a picture of it after a thunder storm and hail! It was not even wet where the eggs are. Fantastic!
