One cushion cover completed!

But, I can't really count it toward my finish along list, because I wasn't the one who finished it.  Elyse has decided that she wants a rainbow of cushions on her bed, and has taken the first step with this gorgeous red QAYG cushion.

 She was incredibly focused as she selected, attached, and quilted each strip.  She even sewed in the zipper!

I just love that little selvedge strip.

Maybe, once she's finished her rainbow, I'll be able to talk her into making covers for the rest of my cushions.

Finished this before it's too warm to wear it.

This baby alpaca cowl is so incredibly soft and warm.  I just wish I could get the colours in my photos to be a deep and rich as it is in real life. 

The seed stitch adds a lovely texture, and I actually managed to graft the ends together in seed stitch, so the join is virtually invisible.  Other than the grafting, it must be one of the easiest knitting projects ever undertaken.  It's pretty difficult to make a mistake with seed stitch, and if you do, it's immediately noticeable.
