Christmas Pillow

Ok...I'm in full on fair isle mode.  I finished a scarf a little bit ago and now this....  I enjoyed every minute of the knitting and now am enjoying it in my chair.  The pattern is Fair Isle Round Pillow by Hazel Tindall, knit with Jamieson's Shetland Spindrift. Each side is the reverse of the other.   PS....another scarf is on the needles as well.
