September Pineapples

I ran out of yarn and had to just quit with only 2 rounds left to do. I had no idea I didn't have enough thread.
And, of course, it was some old stuff I bought at an antique store so there was no getting more. No edging makes me crazy!

I thought about making the last two rounds in gold or something, but I just thought that would detract from the whole thing, so I just left it plain. A little disappointing after spending all those hours, but that's okay. I still like it very much. My favorite part is the center stems that, altogether, look like a snowflake. Do you see it?

Pattern Graph:  (February 22, 2009)
Thread:  100% Mercerized cotton, Off-white, unknown brand, but I think it was Coats? I got it for $1 at an antique store.
Hook:  Size 2mm
Finished Size:  23" (without last two rounds)


Ollie-Wally on alert.

 Sweet Janie.
She enjoys it outside even though she can't see much anymore.

Fletch & Ollie, the boys roughhousing.

Eli looking a little scraggly. His haircut is growing out. 
He's still a pretty boy, though, and so full of personality.

And finally...

The October issue of Food Network Magazine has this little recipe booklet inside it for free this month. Totally worth the price of the magazine ($4.99) just to have this booklet. It has some great-looking recipes I can't wait to try.

See ya!


  1. I like your doily just the way it is, but I do understand your frustration because I've been there. The center does look like a snowflake...gee Pammy Sue. Thanks for the reminder of that nasty season ahead. Just kidding!😘. Your babies all look happy. You must be a good doggy mama. Oh bread. I baked two loaves of banana bread this morning with some bananas that were "on the edge". The house smells so good but it's Wednesday so I have to wait until tomorrow to eat it. :-(

  2. Yes, I see the snowflake in the center and it's fabUlous! I adore the doily just as it is.. but curious what the edging would have looked like. I love your dog photos. Eli is a fave of mine.. that face is suhWEEET! I want that quick bread book!
    ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  3. love the pineapple doily the way it is but will keep my eye out for this, I know the feeling of not enough thread :(
    t has been very beautiful here to lately and it cooled off too.

  4. I think the doily looks lovely even without an edging. I have some really nice patterns for doilies but am finding it difficult to get the correct weight of crochet thread which is quite annoying.


  5. Hi Pammy Sue!
    Oh, I see, this is the doily you were talking about! Do you know what? I think it looks amazing! If you hadn't said anything about missing rows, well, I cannot tell there is anything missing. It looks perfect to me and I appreciate how much work you must have put into it!!! So, well done!
    And those photos of your dogs are funny, such characters!!!
    Now you got 2 major projects finished, what will you make next? any ideas?
    Take care!

  7. Oh and I nearly forgot the doily: It's super pretty!! Thanks for the link :-). Greetings, Nata

  9. Oh Pammy Sue I love that doily! I think that one is my favorite.

  10. Your doily is beautiful. I never would have known the last two rows were missing if you hadn't mentioned it. It's just beautiful!

  11. Lovely Pammy Sue and yes I do see the snowflake and love it and the doggies are just adorable.

  12. The doily is beautiful! I love it just the way it is!

    Hugs pat :))

  14. Love your doily just the way it is,
    but you know me, I would have finished off with a contrast color ;o)

    Baking bread is one of my favourite things to do.

    Crisp morning here in Norway.
    Wish you a perfect day

  15. It does have a lovely snowflake! I guess we will be seeing more of those very soon, won't we? Winter will be here before we know it! Give your sweet fur babies a hug from me! They are just so dern cute! -Marci @ Stone Cottage Adventures

  16. Ooh, yes! Love that snowflake inside the doily! And it looks gorgeous, even though I understand the frustration of it not looking quite how you wanted it to without the border.

  17. If you had not said anything, I would have never known your doily was missing two rounds. It is very beautiful. I love how you include your sweet little dogs in your blog. Take care and may god bless you.

  18. Pineapple patterns are so elegant.
    I love it the way it is and if you tire of it add another color are so good with color. :o)

    Your pups are such characters! LOL

  19. Pammy Sue the universe is telling you that doily is perfect just the way it is, and I have to agree. It is gorgeous. Love the doggies.

  20. Oh That's just GORGEOUS Pammy Sue. I do love doilies. I'd love to make more, but I don't have enough surfaces in my house to display them! I did make some little ones and put them on embroidery hoops for the wall and that was the only way of getting round it!

    Take care Vanessa xxx

  21. I'd never have known your beautiful doily was two rounds short if you hadn't mentioned it. Its very pretty - boy what a lot of work in it too. I wonder how you ever manage to do everything you do - don't you ever sleep ??? Love the pic of Ollie and Fletch playing and the one of Eli is so sweet. If you think he's scraggly looking, you should see our Quincy ! xox

  22. You can never go wrong with pineapples, ever. Timeless classic. Nice work. I love puppies!

  23. I love the pineapple pattern, it's so delicate looking. Don't you just hate it when you run out of yarn?

  24. Your doily is very pretty Pammy Sue. You can't go wrong with snowflakes and pineapples. Classic! The girls are right. You'd never know there are two missing rows. There is nothing better than filling with house with the aroma of fresh baked bread! I better add yeast to my shopping list. :) My bread machine came with some really good recipes. I'm thinking some homemade chicken and noodles(I use Grandma's frozen noodles) and a loaf of warm fresh bread for Sunday dinner. Mmmm! Your pups are precious! penny x

  25. I think your doily is beautiful! I love pineapples! They are one of my most fav things to crochet in a doily. :)
    Loved seeing all the fur babies, too.

    Wishing you a great day. :)
