Orange Pillow Prop
A few weeks back I posted this pyramid pillow prop...
...and the pattern for it.
The thing is, it didn't work for me. When I read, I'm in bed. Using that pillow, I couldn't tilt the ereader to the angle most comfortable for me reading. I tried. For two days. I twisted my head around, but it just wasn't comfortable.
So, I put the thing away and pondered.
(A funny thing happened, though. After posting the pattern, I got a lot of interest through Ravelry. At the moment, nine other individuals have made their own versions. Don't believe me? Go see. I think the fuzzy one is my favorite.)
The week before spring break I had a lot of plotting time. Besides some knitting, I found the time to come up with a complete redesign.
Believe it or not, this works for me. It's at just the right angle for reading while lying in bed on my side.
There is still one issue. The thing tips over easily. Perhaps I should make it bigger?
Yep, I'm probably going to redesign this yet again. When I have some time. And a different idea.
Okay, what do you think? Crazy? Strange? Would it work for you?
