Mama Knits Crochets and Quilts

A mom and needle craft blog


After my little Siobhan, I went back to a larger pattern from Volume 1 — Clementine.  I had ordered some Aunt Lydia’s Classic Crochet 10 thread from Amazon of all places because I couldn’t find silver or ecru in  my stores, but I knew those colors existed.  I was guessing they would fit in with my other neutrals, and when the silver came, I just loved it.  It is a very light gray, the most ‘colorful’ of the threads I am using, but I couldn’t wait to see it done up.  So along came Clementine.  This was my first experience with a pineapple motif, and they are so fun to do!  A lot easier than I thought, but so graceful (no pun intended, at all) and really pretty.


I only have two unopened thread colors left, ecru and cream.  So I think that means two more large doilies, and then smaller ones made from the leftovers.  Unless I do a large one with multiple colors of thread…or both!
