Headdesk moment.....almost

I'm in the pillowghan CAL at Crochetville and had decided to do the pineapple pillowghan mostly cause I love the pineapple pattern.

The first time I try to make the square I had to frog back to the 3rd rnd cause I can't count to 6. I had 5 tr in one of the pineapple bases and didn't notice till I had almost finished. I frogged back and fixed it and finished the square. It was 11" instead of 12" so I went from a J to a K hook and I started another square with the same thing happening, I had to frog it again *headdesk* I finished the square this morning and I'll be darned if it still wasn't 11" so before I did another *headdesk* I tried adding another rnd and this is the result:

I kinda like it, makes the pineapple a little pointier. At least it's 12" now and no more *headdesk* unless I forget how to count to 6 again *wink*

Birthday & Christmas Prezzies

These next 3 were gifts for friends of mine. The first one is an afghan called Cables done holding one strand of gold yarn and one strand of amethyst yarn together and using a size Q hook. It was a birthday present for my very good friend who lives in Scotland. The little dog is mine, she's a camera hog *Grin*.

The other two are called Granny's Garden, I can't remember which book I got it from but I know it's from Red Heart. They're a version of the granny square starting in the middle and working your way out. The red/gray one was sent to Ohio and the burgundy/white one went to my son in law.

As always, you can click the thumbnails for a bigger picture.

My prettiest afghan

I think this is my prettiest afghan I've ever made. I made it for a lady in our church and she loves it. She told me that everyone who sees it compliments it. I'm glad she's happy with it and I hope she gets many years of service from it. It's called Rose in Bloom, appropriate I think.

This is my first post here. I'll be posting pics of my crochet and knit stuff here so that others can see what I'm up to.

Stay tuned while I figure all this out ;)
