That stitch works up really fast. Especially on those needles! What stitch have you decided on for your pinwheel pillow? I like to use 99 Knit Stitches (Leisure Arts.) It is where I found the Trinity stitch. (Andulusian stitch is compliments of Sarah White, About.com.) The ivory color you are using would work really well for Trinity stitch, too!
Well, here is my pillow, as a WIP and a FO. It will be my mom's Mothers Day gift. I think it turned out pretty nice.
Cheers! ~~ mm

It's divided into categories : knit/purl combinations, rib, lace, cables, edgings and borders, twist stitches, bobbles and other textures, slip stitch patterns, creative combinations and basic colour combinations and motifs (simple jacquard, argyle, intarsia ideas, fair isle, etc.). I got this one at my local library. I have other reference books too but this one is easy to use, colourful, and tells you what each stitch is best used for, or at least ideas on what to make with it. I found the Andalusian stitch in here also, as well as the Trinity stitch. She says Trinity is also known as bramble stitch and is wonderful for hems, cuffs, collars and slouchy lined bags, or framing central cable panels on Aran sweaters. And we can also add pillows to the list!
