My first pillow

I've always dreamed of being surrounded with handmade items in my home. A year ago, I had no idea how to operate my sewing machine. I am so excited I just finished my first pillow!!!




Suzon shawl

I am so proud of my friend Cecile when she published her pattern "Suzon shawl" in loving memory of her grandmother.
It is an easy pattern with stripes and lace.
The first one I made was with Three Irish Girls yarn in DK weight. The colorways were "Estuary" and "Spoonful of sugar"


  

I am making a second one with sock yarn using Zen Garden yarn. The colorway is "honeycrisp apple"
 
 
The last one is with some delicious Manos yarn "Rittenhouse merino"
