For Valentine’s Day this year, I knit Grayson a heart shaped pillow in yellow, which is my absolute favorite color & I say is the color of my love. Not only is it freakin adorable, it’s just about the coziest pillow in our home right now. It’s knit up in super soft bulky yarn & stuffed to the brim, & the little heart dimple makes an ahhh-mazing little crevice for your neck when you flip it around. And it’s a great way to practice new techniques! Magic loop, a teeny bit of short rows, fun construction, & a whole lot more in this little bundle of joy! Thoughtful, cute, practical, quick - your perfect new project!
