    I love to use stitched pillows and afghans to decorate my living room. I knit pillow covers with my knitting machine (using the complementary colors in the room). Then I use invisible stitch and embroidery on top of the knitted (chain stitches, French knots etc.) to embellish them. I also like to crochet appliques and flowers to add to them as well.

      They sound beautiful. Do you have any pictures?? I used to use my knitting machines (all 3 of them) every day to make everything from double mittens, headbands, hats, sweaters and socks etc etc, until I had shoulder surgery. Since then I haven’t been able to use them, to my great dismay!! I really miss that.

      Keep on knitting!
