Making pillows made up primarily of crochet spirals is turning out to be a great zone-out project. These little guys are fun and easy to make, and right now they require no thought.
When I have a bunch of them, I'll separate them into individual pillow groups (I'm planning to make at least 4 pillows, maybe 6!), and then I'll add the surface crochet embellishment and join them.
These pictures give me a sense of how many spirals each round pillow will need.
My other current project is the Jitterbug monkeys. Since Jitterbug has punk yardage, I'm shortening the monkeys by one pattern repeat in the leg. I just hope it's enough! If I run out of yarn, I'll improvise for the toes. They'll usually be in a shoe anyway.
This may be the most beautifully dyed yarn I have ever seen! Such colors! Yum.
