The Pineapple Sunrise
The FO is a tiny bit rough, and very warm. I think it will be perfect over the sleeveless dress on chilly evenings, so it definitely does the right thing. I’d be happy to work with this yarn again.
I Promise You Pineapples looks pretty right off the hook. It’s absolutely gorgeous after blocking.
I’m still feeling my way around blocking wires. It’s sort of fun to realize how many choices there are in the blocking process. I know that I can re-block if I don’t like the final effect, so it’s a low-stress, high impact stage of finishing.
Since the dress that I made this to go with has a triangular neckline, I decided not to really curve the shawl. I also chose to align the pineapples themselves rather than the curves on the shawl edge. Finally, I decided to pin out the center portion of the fans rather than every shell within those fans. The end result makes me happy.
I plan to wear this next weekend, along with the dress. Hopefully I’ll get some usable pictures of me in it.
