Pineapple Blanket

**No one faint! I have actually typed up a blog post, lol**

Around the start of 2014 Jessica had a wonderful idea of doing a Crochet-A-Long with Grace & me. Even though I am not a huge fan of crochet I decided I would do it also. My original plan was just a small lap blanket for Brenda & would only need about six (6) squares. Little did I know what I was getting myself into. As I was working on it Brenda asked if I could make it bigger? I naturally said yes, how big did she want it? Queen size with overlap. Whoa! So I said sure & got to making my squares. I got 6 done, then did the math. I would need 36 squares! I just about flipped out cause I knew that this would take me forever to do but I said I would do it & continued to make squares. Now I can only crochet for a certain amount of time before it starts to drive me batty & I have to go back to my knitting. That is why it took me almost three (3) years to complete the blanket. It is completed now & it will take a lot of convincing to me to make another queen size crochet blanket. Brenda loves it so that makes it all good.
