Christmas Gifts Started-- Ornament #1 --Pineapple Ornament

>> Friday, October 2, 2009


This is the start of my pineapple ornament. This ornament is kinda a big deal because I have not made any lace in over ten years. Just too tedious. So even though this only took an hour or so one evening, it is a segnificant step for me. I tend to avoid things I consider too challenging. The pattern is from part of a doily in Decorative Crochet, Issue 11.
I also have never done any pineapple crochet. for some reason I had it in my head that it was soooo hard. It wasn't! In fact the design is rather simple once you understand it. Most of it is chains and single crochets repeats! Too easy....
I am afraid that my scanner did not do justice to the sheen of the thrift-store-find thread I chose: it is beautiful. The piece needs to be blocked and embellished.... but for now I will just glory in my small triumphs!

I will add finished pictures later.....
