A few years ago when I had just started knitting, my mother gave me some black tapestry yarn that had been my grandmother's and said, "Maybe you can use this someday." (Each hank cost my grandmother $.25.) I kept thinking maybe pillows for our bed but no patterns came to mind until I read the Mason Dixon book. Three pillows were born! Two are obvious - the log cabin and the big dotty. The triangles were inspired by the Woollythoughts web site (p. 67 in the book). Now they sit on our bed between a quilt that hangs on the wall (yes, it really is that crooked for some reason unknown to me!) made by my great-grandmother and a quilt that is at the foot of our bed made by our daughter.
If not, come and join us.
