and then there was one more pillow

Ugh, the light is bad right now, but I was too excited about finishing the 4th pillow to stop and wait for better light. Here it is, front overly bright, front overly dark, and back overly dark.

Turns out pillows aren't the best pit knitting, but they aren't the worst, either. This afternoon I brought in the top, the back, the pillow form, and a few supplies. At the end of the show, I had a new pillow. Yippee!

Still admiring your stuff! In fact i was inspired to try and do a spiral myself. I thought to myself "you can do a chain, why not a chain, roll it into a spiral and use the hook and some yarn to tie it all together" Easy for me to say... lots harder for me to do.
Anyways, just wanted to drop by and say again how i so admire your art.

Jimbo, thank you so much for these lovely comments and compliments! I think what we have here is a mutual admiration society, since I just adore your hooks. I've used both the standard hook and the egg hook while making these pillows, and they just make the crocheting that much more fun. Plus, it's nice to know that they were hand made by such a fine person.
