[knitting] Honeycomb Pillow Cover

I chose basic worsted wool from my stash to knit a honeycomb pillow cover:

It's all puckered up at the moment, but blocking will fix that. I'm pretty happy with the colors that I chose and think that they work nicely together.

I'll need to sew in all those ends before I wash/block. I'm nearly done with the 2nd half and hope to have a pretty new pillow all done by the end of the weekend.

Very cool! Can't wait to see the finished item. ;)

Since all those ends will be hidden inside the pillow, I'd be tempted just to leave them. Don't know if I'd actually be able to do it, but I'd be tempted...

Yeah, I'm not going to be too meticulous about sewing them in... just a little bit to ensure that things don't unravel.
