83. FO



Dear Pillow Case,

You are the cutest thing ever and I love you a lot. I will make more of your kind so you can have friends.



Needles: US 8 Circular 24"
Yarn:
1 Skein Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride Worsted



85% wool / 15% mohair
Pattern: Improvised using Woven stitch - knit in the round and seamed at top & bottom.



I love it. So so so much. I want to make a million more.

The 4th was incredibly epic for me. I worked until 5pm then hit a rooftop bbq in bushwick, stayed a few hours until we were "asked to leave" because one of us lit of some fireworks after the people who lived in the building apparently made an announcement that we weren't aloud to do that anymore. We moved on to another rooftop down the street that was far more amazing than the first one with way less people (which in our state was perfect). We danced/pranced & giggled around the best kept secret roof in brooklyn for hours until we finally ended up at our friends place who happens to have a front lawn entirely inclosed by ivy & trees. Turned on the christmas lights, brought out all the pillows and blankets in the house and slept on the front lawn. 5 boys + 3 girls all cuddled up on a lawn until 9am. It was beautiful.

How was your 4th?

I love your pillow; I love Lamb's Pride! I definitely want to knit one (or ten). Your 4th looks like it was a blast; too bad I was sans camera to document the craziness that happened that day!
