I knit the travel pillow from the travel issue of Knit.1 magazine for my father-in-law out of some random acrylic that I had. This was a tough one to pick out because he is not much of a knit wearer. I think this will be nice because he works hard and needs to relax. Also he and his wife travel a lot. I filled it with a pillow I made and stuffed with pearl barley, which is very heavy, something I should have though about first since we have to mail it. I didn’t stitch the clouds on them because I think that he would prefer it plain. After washing the acrylic was super soft.
