Pineapple Shawl, Tutorials and Sharing the Love

I finished crocheting my pineapple shawl (it’s SpaceCadet’s Lucina Fingering in the color Drizzle and the pattern is Pineapple Centerpiece #7771. Catchy name, huh?) The pattern is for a doily, and I was hoping that with a thicker yarn and bigger hook, it’d be shawl-size. I even added an extra row of pineapples… and it’s, well, a small shawl. Which is okay. I learned the knot stitch, which is cool even though I’m not sure how much I love the look. For my next one, I want to go bigger, so I’m eyeing this pattern. But it uses 4,000 yards. So, maybe next year.

If you don’t know all 4 colors of cauliflower (or haven’t seen them in one place), then you’ll want to look at this photo I took at my farmer’s market.

You’ve probably noticed that Nelson the Owl (my logo) got a bit of an update. I just finished crocheting a new Nelson. What a cutie!

Today’s feel good story is this grandma who invited the wrong teen to Thanksgiving and invites him anyway. She says “Of course you can [still come by]. That’s what Grandmas do… feed everyone!” Isn’t that EXACTLY the spirit we all need right now? Spread the love, people.
