Pillow cover nr. 2

Pillow cover:
Made with 106 stitches
Knitted with 2,5 mm needles.
I used 7 different designs from my Fair Isle book .
Fitted with a zipper.
Knitted with small bits of leftover yarn.
Started out finding the designs I wanted, 
and them drew them on a piece of paper so I could cross out as I proceeded.
Then I started knitting.

Just now

 Been reading "The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe".
I must confess that I rather like the movie better than the book.

Hoping I can get myself to get out of the apartment here in the weekend,
to go to the library to find some new books,
and to go to the local fleamarket.

 A guest towel I am working on.
I really like the pattern, it is pretty awesome:)

 A pair of mittens I am working on.

Been a bit off this last week.
Been sleeping  a lot. 
Not wanting to get out of my apartment.
The usul stuff really.
But hoping for better next week.
