Why a Pillow?

Pillows make for perfect summer knitting!  These quick to knit home accessories are just the right size for your travel knitting.  My knitting is the first thing that I pack for any trip and this project will fit easily into any suitcase.

Pillows also provide a wonderful opportunity to explore new techniques and yarns within a small project.

Knitted pillows are all the rage in home decor magazines.  Why buy one when you can knit a lovely one yourself!
