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.

Make your own snowflake cushion cover for seasonally themed dcor. Choose colours to match any room, be it your own or a lucky giftee.
This cover will fit a 16 x 16 inch pillow and requires 3 skeins of 100g worsted weight yarn in two contrasting colours. The pattern is knit with 5mm needles and uses the stranded colourwork technique for the snowflake image.
The back of the pillow is mostly knit in stockinette, but employs moss stitch as well to give the closure edge a nicely finished look. You will need buttons for the closure at the back.
