I am happy with the tension, too. When I started knitting a few years ago, I was definitely a tense knitter which makes it harder to knit and sloooows you down. I relaxed and enjoyed it. Goes along with how I’m approaching life currently. Relax. Go with it but GO with it. No sidelines! (Why? Read Tap, Tap on my Web Design blog – if you want – no pressure! :))
I have lofty aspirations of embroidering (I guess it would be called embroidering) a pattern similar to the pattern of the fabric in the stockinette portion of the pillow. We shall see. I think it would be pretty!
If you’ve never knit with Blue Sky Alpacas worsted cotton, I highly recommend. It is soft, knits up very quickly and smooth, too. Would probably make a really nice early fall sweater. Or for layering. Or spring. Hmmm… 😉
