project: gusseted floor cushions in tomato soup

so, i've been making a bit of progress on the gusseted floor cushions. i'm about 90% done with one cushion. please let me have enough yarn for two of these! i'm going to be cutting it really close.

the pattern is from Last Minute Knitted Gifts. for yarn, i'm using knit picks cadena in saffron. i bought 9 hanks, for 2 cushions. once i got the yarn, i realized i needed to modify my needle size and pattern a bit to get 18"x18" pillows. this yarn isn't as bulky as the pattern calls for, so i'm using size 11 needles (instead of 15 - so much for a super quick knit), so i had to change up the number of stitches cast on. for the side panels i cast on 14, and for the wider pieces i cast on 63. seems to be going well so far.
