Hey look, it's a pineapple!
This is a dinky version of the Big Damn Pineapple found on Knitty. I didn't have the commitment to make the whole version, so I cast on only half as many stitches as called for in the directions and ignored the stitch counts indicated in the rows. Instead of figuring out how many beads I was going to need, I just pulled up the loop of each stitch requiring a bead and slipped one on as I went along. It worked because I was using very fine crochet cotton that would fit through the beads when doubled. Needles were 00000 size.
I showed it to David. I said "Look at my knitting", and he said "Cool! it looks like a virus!" and I said "It's supposed be a pineapple", and he said "Oh, right on, like Victorian clothing and stuff."
He makes me so mushy.
