When I first felt this yarn I knew I had to make something for Marisol.
Something soft that she could snuggle up to.
So while we were on our road trip from San Diego to Monterey in June I started knitting a cushion cover. Yes I dragged bags of yarn, needles and even 3 cushion inserts that I’d purchased from Ikea for a couple of dollars mere days before our trip around with us.
Yes I only just finished the first cushion.
Marisol thinks it is the softest cushion she has ever put her head on. She rubs her cheek on it like she is in pure heaven.
The back is knitted with Caron Christmas Glitter in white and silver and has a green velvet ribbon threaded through.
I had a little ‘heaven’ left over so when she wasn’t looking I knitted her a scarf too.
and then with even more yarn left, I decided to knit matching scarves for her 2 favorite dolls (who barely ever leave her side).
Shhhh though, please don’t tell her, because I’ve stashed all 3 scarves away to give to her on her birthday later in the week.
