WIP Wednesday: Tri the Force

Yeah yeah .. horrible joke. Moving on ....

KnittingCrochet:
As I complained on FB earlier 1 pillow takes 1 skein of yellow and 1 of white but 2 takes 3 skeins of yellow and 1 of white? I'm confused. Though, in retrospect, because I did all the triangles first and semi sewed them together before I did the strip around the edge I could be wrong in that. It could require 1.5 skeins of yellow, which would make more sense honestly. I think my issue is desginers not being clear about how much yarn a project requires. But! Enough of that, on to the picture!



We have both front and back for 2 pillows and 1 full strip to go around the outside of them. The other strip is short by a third of the total length. And here you can see the locking markers I've used to hold the triangles together, since I didn't fully sew them together, I just used the ends to join together where available. On the plus side it's been a good (and enjoyable) lesson on peicing things together, getting things to line up, and making sure the right sides are all facing correctly.

Reading:

Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury Having just started reading this morning I have not read enough to have an opinion. It's certainly a different feel from the last book so I'm still trying to swtich gears

    1. I really don't understand why they don't. I'll measure out the remaining yardage and do the math (and I 'hate' math) so I can share what the required yardage is.

  4. Looks like you're almost ready to assemble! Can't wait to see them with the outside strips in all their 3D glory!

    1. I actually started assembling today! :) I managed to get one all the way done (minus the stuffing) and one side of the second one finished before I spent time on other things. :D
