The afghan is a giant granny square. I made it with whatever leftover red, white, and blue yarn I had from a couple of other patriotic afghans that I'd made last year.
And here is a pineapple shawl that I made about a year ago from a doily pattern (I'll find the link to it later...it's on Celtwich's site)
I moved some furniture around my house earlier this year, and discovered by accident that the shawl looks great on the back of my foam couch (folds out into a bed) So, it's actually being used as a chair back doily now.
And here's another view with a little more couch showing...
I'm currently working on another one of these pineapple shawls. I'm using Caron Pounder yarn in Iris (purple)
I got some Sugar & Cream yarn on sale at a LYS last week, so I'm having fun knitting dishcloths with it. I'm almost done with one...I may post a picture of that later this week.
