The Pineapple Project

Remember the yarn I promised to brag about? Well I liked it so much that I forgot to take a pic of it while it was still a skein! Now it looks like this...
I have two strips (each 1 skein), 6 pineapples long and am waiting for more yarn from Ebay to finish it. Isn't it glorious???

The specs on the yarn are... Lamb's Pride Bulky (a fantastically soft wool/mohair single ply yarn) in the Prairie Goldenrod color. I'm using a normal pineapple pattern with some shells on the side. This will probably be a for sale pattern when I figure out how to connect them in the middle. More details coming soon!

I have 2 more skeins of this in worsted weight and in the Ocean Waves colorway, but haven't decided what to do with it yet. When I figure something out, I'll share it, too!
