the neapolitan icecream crochet cushion - a work in progress
Didn't you just love neapolitan icecream when you were younger? We did, apart from the strawberry, which kind of defeated the purpose! But it always looked so pretty sitting in the container and I certainly liked the idea of the pink icecream, if not the taste! This cushion is an ode, of sorts, to the perfect mix of icecream colours, plus an extra pink to add to the mix. It's all from Bendigo Woollen Mills - wool I already had and it's not bad on my hands... but again, whinge, not the beautiful strengths of colours from my old favourite Zara.
I've been making this over the past couple of nights and only have a few rows to go of the back. The cushion which it will cover is only smallish, so it's been the perfect start for me with crocheted cushions... another new crochet addiction! It's just so nice to sit down at night and work on a project that's not for the long-term! My sister Kate suggested I try making a few, now that I've mastered granny squares. I have another three cushions to cover, so you know what I'll be doing over the next week or so!
