fair isle cushion - now with pictures!
Some you already know that I'm knitting a cushion for an SCA competition inspired by knitted silk cushions found in 13th century Spanish graves.  I spun the yarn, designed the repeating motif, and am writing the pattern as I go.  I started the knitting on Friday evening, and here are pictures of my progress thus far.  I probably have 4-6 hours in so far; I tend to be bad about keeping track.  So far, I'm really enjoying it; I've done a little Fair Isle before, on a hat, but this is the first time I've done an extensive project.

There would have been pics a lot sooner, but I've been suffering through some fairly major computer issues (hard drive died, replaced with older hard drives that turned out to be 1/3 the capacity and riddled with virii... it's not been pretty). I'll try to keep up better!

There's a Central Region EKU in February, and a free knit/spin gathering at the Portland Doubletree that month, too. We'll have to see what we can come up with.
