Second Pillow, Any One?

I've been knitting my second Clapotis over the past day, so I've been ignoring my flower pillow. Has anyone started?

I bought a package of clothes pins today, which I plan to use as bobbins. I'll report in on whether that works or not.

Also, a question: Has anyone ever seen black stuffing (poly or cotton)? When I made the bunny last weekend in black yarn, I used left over black Lopi to stuff it. I'd prefer not to use good yarn to stuff toys, but if I stuff a dark-yarned item with white material, it's going to show through. I'm hoping there's a good alternative.

I think we're going to work on that Nicky Epstein Rose Pillow in Holiday VK. Knit with Lion Suede. You know the one?

Look at the thread on Knittyboard.

I'm going to pass on that. It looks lovely, though. Have fun.

We do want to do the other pillow, though, too

Sarah: I am still on the 1st pillow, so NO I haven't started the 2nd!! Did you embroider, block and stuff the first one? Do tell--how'd you do it?!

I haven't touched the first pillow since I finished knitting it. I have to finish another project by the 30th and my left hand gets so sore after a couple of hours of knitting, which means that I can't get as much done as I would like.

I'll post once I get back to the pillows.

You could maybe line the pillow with dark colored fabric--or create a pillow with-in a pillow.
