The first two Listener Cushions are now assembled and stuffed and ready to make their way to London. Thank you all so much!
The first cushion I think is made from a lot of Rowan British Breeds, and includes a square made in the US on the front....
and squares made in Australia on the back...
The second cushion also has some "Made in Oz" squares, this time on the front....
Thanks to all the listeners who contributed!

The dinosaur in a badly-knitted Fair Isle sweater (aka Keble College)
Another dinosaur - real this time!
Looking down into the Pitt Rivers - it looks a lot darker than this in real life!
