I made a pillow!!!

If any of you were on the edge of your seat wondering what I made with the roving and the size 50 needles, it was a pillow! The camera didn't pick up the beautiful browns and whites mixed in to the roving.

I am going through my fiber stash and have so many bags of "Babydoll" sheep wool. It is so soft but short fibers that don't spin well. I just don't like working with it until now! I used full roving and knitted a pillow. I then made a pillow form with some material I have as well as some fiber fill. I cast on 8 stitches across and did a basic stockinette stitch for 10 rows and then ran one pearl stich at the seam. Each stitch takes anywhere from 2 1/2 to 3 inches of roving!  It is unbelievably soft!!!!

So now I am inspired, I have added some alpaca roving to the "Babydoll" roving and am knitting another pillow. This is even softer!!!
