I finally finished the sewing on my Pillow of Sei Shonagon from Larissa Brown's Knitalong. The knitting was fast; making a pillow form and sewing on the backing took longer. Well, technically, they only took an afternoon, but I procrastinated.
This was for Blog-free Kim's birthday in early August...I'm keeping up a tradition of giving her half-finished gifts when we celebrate! I was a bit tricksy earlier in the season and asked her for suggestions for poems that she liked. She mentioned T.S. Eliot's "The Wasteland," and I used the first two and a half stanzas for the text of the pillow.
This was a satisfying and fun project. Now I have to persuade myself to give it up! Ravelry details here.
