The shawl is to keep my shoulders warm. This took a little longer to knit, but was not hard. I used four skeins of Bernat Cashmere, which by the way only has a teeny bit of cashmere and is mostly acrylic.
The Pinwheel pillow is a pattern from Knitscene magazine. I used a chunky brown acrylic from my stash. I did think about stuffing it with yarn, but I used polyester stuffing instead.
Three projects to make me more comfortable.

Two cute baby sweaters, just the right colors for Valentine's Day. Both have a hood. The pink one I knit for a friend's new granddaughter in Virginia. Knit seamless from the top down in an acrylic wool blend. I hope to get it sent to her before she grows out of it.
The red one is knit seamless from the bottom up, from Amore yarn, soft and washable. The pattern from Lion Brand. Notice the wolf? It kind of reminded me of little red riding hood.
