As a freelance copy editor and transcriptionist (and a student again as well!), I happily work for myself from home, which generally allows me to knit and craft and create when the mood strikes.
For me, knitting and crocheting has evolved from a hobby to an all-consuming passion (some would say obsession). Inspiration for my designs is drawn from all over the place, including past travels -- from Turkey to Kyrgyzstan and many places in between.

An eye-catching design that works well in bold colours, this stranded colourwork cover is easy to knit and works up quickly. The reverse of the pillow is knit in the background colour and has an overlapping edge with a ribbed design. This works well with cushions that are about 16" x 16".
This pattern requires 5mm needles, 2 skeins of worsted weight background color and 1 skein of foreground color (based on 180m per skein), and a stitching needle and buttons for reverse of pillow.
14 stitches and 20 rows = 4 inches in stockinette
