Happy Friday! Hope you all had a good week, I am still on the mend from my cold, but am back at work, and still kickin!
Today I wanted to share a couple FOs. I decided to participate in a 12 inch square swap to add to my friendship-ghan. I was partnered with a friendly lady from California. She requested oranges and yellows for her great-granddaughter, how could I not oblige? Here are the 2 squares I came up with.
First up, the orange square. I decided to try the pattern I selected for my Afghan Swap. It’s the Pineapple Afghan by Mary Conley. Big surprise huh? I love me some pineapple plumes. I actually really like this pattern. I used a an H hook and some leftover orange yarn. I didn’t even make it thru the whole pattern before it got too large. It’s simple but looks really good.
Next up, the yellow square. I decided to try something different. I recalled that I had used a pattern for a different square and really liked it, so I tracked down the lady (Aurora Suominen) and grabbed another of her 12 inch patterns. This one is called Snowfall 12″ Square. I used an H hook again and some yellow and grey scraps I had laying around. I really like this square, I love the snowflake in the center and the FPDC texture surrounding it. It’s quite lovely. I would probably go up a hook size next time and I really struggled to get this to 12 inches. But it’s cute none-the-less. I really hope my swapner likes them!
So there are my FOs for the week, check out the others here, have a great weekend!
