FO-Two color cushion
I finally finished my two color entrelac cushion. The pattern was from How to Knit by Debbi Bliss: Project 14. Started it June 28 and finally finished it July 10-date of the wedding for whom this was a gift for. I used Bernat Softee Chunky in black and Caron Simply Soft in Soft Blue. Never again will I keep such a short deadline. To see pictures you can either go Here or here. My photobucket (second link) shows the other projects I'm working on if anyone wanted to look at those too.

*Edit* Here's a picture of the pillow:

Very pretty!

You'll get more comments and views if you post the picture here so people don't have to click a link.

Very nice!! I hear ya on the short notice thing - I had a baby shower yesterday and was not able to complete the afgan I am knitting in time :( I did do up 3 washcloths (of course, I didn't have my camera handy, so no FO to post of them) and made a "bath basket" with some other items. C'est la vie!

Yeah, I'm starting my mom's birthday present now, her birthday's in September. I should have enough time to finish as long as it's not a blanket with intricate designs. Maybe a pair of socks...haven't tried socks yet.

I thought it'd be difficult too, but once I got into the rhythm it was easy. A lot of p2tog, pick up sts, and m1 that can be time consuming...and switching colors. You cold do it with one color or more than 2 I suppose, with some modification to the directions. Give it a try, you may find it easier than it looks.
