I'm working on this Travel Pillow. My Hobby Lobby didn't have the yarn it calls for, so I'm using Lion Brand Jiffy Denim and Fisherman. Here is the top part (still without the clouds). Some of my increases are pretty sad, but over all I'm happy with it.

that was part of my problem. I started out just doing a YO because I thought an increase is an increase and if I needed something different they would have been more specific. Well as it turns out the YOs left 'holes' in the pattern that may become a problem when I try to put the front and the back together. for the back I've switched to M1A.

I thought about doing that part over again, but I'm not certain I have enough yarn left, and frogging this yarn was horrible. There are so many fibers floating around it, that just rubbing against each other gets it all knotted up. I decided I would just make the seam on the inside set of stitches if I had to.
