This week I've been working on my purple leaf cushion which has been a ongoing project for quite some time now, I'm so easily distracted by other projects and find knitting can be quite hard going with my painful joints and muscles, so it a bit of a slow process, but I'll get there in the end. I've knitted some more of the main body of the cushion and also a couple more of the small leaves over the last few days
Reading wise I've been refamiliarising myself with some of the mandolin tunes in 'Teach yourself Bluegrass Mandolin' by Andy Statman, I'm a bit rusty after not being able to play for six months but I'm hopefully going to be able to build my playing back up as it would be great to be able to take my mandolin to a local pickin session again.
The pattern for this cushion come from my Mum's copy of the 'Women's Weekly UK' way back at the end December, and called for the biggest ball of yarn I've ever seen 400g of Hayfrields Bonus Aran in a gorgeous ' Purple Heather' colour.
The cute little leaves are easy to knit, now I know how !! and are in Sirdar country styles DK in Feather grey, Damson and Pansy, hopefully I'll have it finished by this December, I can but hope.
Happy Crafting, linking up with Ginny's Yarn along why not check out what everyone else is making
