I had labeled it the Round Pineapple blanket for Mom, it's really more of a throw but she'll use it in a decorative fashion I would think. It will match the colors she is using the in the "Front Room" also known as the room we are not allowed in..lol White furniture does strange things to people..
The pattern is Ruby's Pineapple and that version was originally a doily done with size 10 thread. I liked the pattern it looks a bit like Peacock Feathers to me so I fiddled around with it a bit and decided to use 2 RH soft worked together with a 10mm hook and it's worked out well. All I have left is to finish the final points on the pineapples and It will be done. So for now I'm thinking I have my Mother's Day shopping done,,
It needs a good washing a then to be dried flat to get a good form, it's been rolled up in a bag for a bit longer than a while..
Missing points to finish..
I've also made headway on a cardigan. I have three others on my list but decided to go with this one for my first real piece of clothing. It might just catch on and I'll be making more, so I haven't given up on those yet.
It's not too much but it is progress, and this is my project for when I'm watching TV. Fairly repetative at least for the next 11 inches, then I'll be shaping for the sleeves, which will be highly modified!
