MrsB Giant Cushions!!


My husband thinks the idea of me having a crafty business is hilarious! The main reason being I want to keep everything I make! And these are no exception.


They are so beautifully tactile.


An enormous 65cm by 65cm, big enough for a whole toddler and still have room left over for a small baby sister!
Their six cable plait, paired with the russet tweediness of the chunky sirdar wool, makes me feel homey, nostalgic for my Scottish roots! Skye, in April sunshine, light so clear everything and everyone looks glasscut.

Can you tell? I am unashamedly proud! Do I really have to sell them?


NB I will happily knit you some too! Convo me shape, size, colour. I will let you know what I find! It will be a pleasure! x

Oh how lovely :D

They look so incredibly comfy - could you not knit a second identical pair to keep? Or would that result in four brand new cushions for the B household? :P

Wow, they're beautiful. My mum has given me some old cushion pads and I'm in the process of plucking up the courage to have a go. Any pointers??? x

Mrs B said...
