Catalina Highway Pillow


Fair Isle Catalina Highway Pillow in Jamieson's Shetland Spindrift yarn

Catalina Highway Pillow, a Fair Isle style pillow cover designed by Mary Ann Stephens, knit with twelve colors of Jamieson’s Shetland Spindrift 100% Shetland wool yarn, doubled for a DK -weight gauge.  Yarn packs with twenty balls of Spindrift plus the emailed PDF are available through the designer’s online shop.

The inspiration for my Catalina Highway Pillow:

Down in America’s Southwest, up in the northeast corner of Tucson, AZ, you’ll find the Catalina Highway. At its base in the Sonoran Desert, the landscape is punctuated by the lively reds and oranges of ocotillo and cholla cactus flowers alongside the dusty greens of the stately saguaros, with their big, creamy white blossoms. As you zigzag your way up the highway, you’ll leave the desert behind as you climb Mt.Lemmon, passing rocky outcroppings, towering evergreens and one breathtaking view after another. In one of the country’s loveliest 30-minutes rides, you’ll travel from the warm, blooming, high desert to America’s southernmost ski mountain. Hope you brought a sweater! 😉
