Anybody Hungry?

I cannot help but think of food every time someone mentions pineapples even though the crocheted variety isn't edible! The design is pretty; however, I just don't see the pineapple. Scales? Yes. Pineapple? No. It is the wrong shape! It appears I am not the only one to struggle with this. However, having fallen in love with the Blue Curacao Shawl by Doris Chan, I had to try to create a pineapple... This dishcloth design was just the thing! I used a hook one size larger than called for since I was testing to see if I'll be able to make the shawl. It worked beautifully. Now, to scout out the prefect yarn before I purchase the book. (Yes, that's right. All this planning and I do not yet own the book. I'm thinking if I can be patient enough, it might become one of my birthday presents this year.)

If you're anything like me, you won't be able to wait for your birthday to get the book. Once I get my mind set that I want a pattern book, I obsess until I just HAVE to order it!

That is soo pretty! I think it looks especially nice in the white, too. It was great meeting your sister last night. Wish you guys could've stayed later. See you Friday?

I don't get why they're called pineapples either. Weird.

I bet you'll end up buying the book yourself instead of waiting. :-)
