The littlest finished object

I made a little ring pillow for our wedding last night:

ring pillow

Just made a stockinette rectangle using size 10 1/2s and some leftover Elann Peruvian Cuzco in vanilla cream, sewed it up and stuffed it with polyfill. Made some ties with a sportweight alpaca yarn. We're not having a ring bearer, but we're going to do a "ring warming" where we pass the rings around to everyone and ask for their good wishes/blessings/whatever. This was the solution to someone potentially dropping a ring or people deciding they want to try them on. Then we were joking after we have the ring warming and everyone has touched the rings we'll have to have some purell up there and do a ring disinfecting.

A very cute idea, and a lovely way to narrow the stash a bit... and as long as you don't lick the rings when you get them back, you'll be just fine. ;)

What a great idea. The pillow is so cute, too.

Maybe you should openly lick the rings before you pass them around so that no one touches them during the warming? (j/k) :)
I love the pillow. So very cute!

I love your wedding ring warming idea. Just lovely. May the hands of a thousand friends hold yours as you unite.
