We just had our living room painted yellow. “Yellow is hard to get right,” our painter warned. And we got it right. When I sit there, I feel sunny.
But the green throw pillows on our caramel-colored sofa looked wrong with the yellow walls, so I went looking for yellow pillows, print pillows that had the right yellow in them, or fabric that I could make pillows with. I’ll spare you the details of my failed search.
And then a light bulb went off. I’d knit pillow covers!
I found just the right shade of yarn, and project-yellow-pillows was almost ready.
Next, I searched a carton on the top shelf of our linen closet. I found fabric leftovers from miscellaneous sewing projects, my collection of knitting needles, my mother’s collection of knitting needles, a lace collar detached from I don’t know what, and other items that won’t move if we do. The key find was the size eight knitting needles that I needed.
Now, once I find a TV series to binge-watch, I’ll be good-to-go.
