This past weekend was my in-laws 60th wedding anniversary. I had remembered a shopping trip with them about a year ago where my mother-in-law remarked on how much she loved these knitted pillow shams at Pottery Barn. I used a pattern for the cabled pillow and modified it slightly. The "A" pillow was actually a pattern I had begun for a Felted Loopy Purse from Lion Brand Yarns and I never quite finished the 20 yard rope.... I think it looks better as a pillow. I sure hope you will give these patterns a try.
also whipped up about 24 cakes in a jar in 3 varieties...more info on the recipes soon
