Pillow made from knit machine and crochet

I finally got the hang of the knit machine. How to cast on, what tension to use and how to cast off. This is the first item that I actually made with the knitting machine. It is just a small pillow approx 8 x 8 inches. I made a length of knitting on the machine long enough to fold it into an envelope then crocheted the sides together and around the custion edge for a pretty finish. I then crocheted a little cup cake with a cherry on top and adorned it with beads to look like hundreds and thousands and applied it to the pillow. I think its very pretty, but was just a trial run and I will have a go at making a full sized cushion cover next.
