I finished the Pineapple Shawl!
I blocked it first to get the pineapples to really stand out.
(My son says they look more like strawberries.)
They are a little difficult to see against the wicker chair.
But everything is so wet from last night's rain storm, the front porch was the best place for photos.
It was a really fun project and I'm glad I made it.
I used Lion Brand's Wool Ease in Chestnut Heather.
Since I used a wool blend, I'll be setting this aside to use this fall. Even though it is an open weave, it is heavy and warm.
The free pattern can be found HERE.
I have a new project on the horizon. It is a variation of a traditional square. I'll share more on that later.

My father-in-law and his wife are coming for a visit.
I have much to do to prepare.
I need to finish cleaning the house and do some cooking.
I've got a pesky summer cold; cough, congestion, etc. I'm hoping it will hit the road soon and I'll be back in full swing.
Happy Independence Day a bit early!
