DIY Tasseled Love Pillow – a finish fifty project

Making this pillow has been on my finish fifty project list since last year when I first started brainstorming fun finger knit projects.

This is what an over one-foot wide ball of one-finger finger-knitting looks like.  I am not kidding.

Finger Knitting How-to

You know how I just wrote about how I like getting a handmade gift more than just about anything.  Well, this is anything.  Sitting on the couch on a lazy Sunday, knitting with my kids . . . that beats gift-getting for sure.
