New Booklet – TREASURES IN CROCHET No. 296

I picked up a copy of a neat little crochet booklet today. The tablecloth on the back cover is beautiful, like nothing I’ve got in my collection, the Pineapple Tablecloth A-1016.

This pattern first appears in the Elizabeth Hiddleson #18 book, the first pattern in the book, and is called ”Pineapple Lei”. It gives a choice of size 20 thread and size 10 hook for a tablecloth of 66”. If a larger cloth is desired, she says to use a size 10 thread and 9 hook. She used 16 skeins of Daisy Merc Thread. Her book contains several pages of written instructions and enlarged pictures for checking against your work.

I looked up her books in eBay, they are going for quite a lot. I’ll have to watch these, the patterns are beautiful!

Nat’s car is back from repairs,  runs like a dream. She and I rode over to Walmart in Delavan and we picked out some new rubber floor mats for winter, a new long-handle ice scraper, some windshield washer fluid, and got her all set. What a difference a new transmission makes, Dennis said the car will be good for another 4-5 years if taken good care of.

Back to my LumberJill sock-I’m about 2 inches from binding off the cuff on sock #1. Should be done this weekend.

I made chicken enchiladas for dinner yesterday, they were killer! Recipe to follow~

French bread pizza tonight, comfort food for a cold Friday night.

DH is bonding with the neighbor, showing off N’s car. He’s happy for her too.

G’night, sleep tight~
