nudged me towards this community when I mentioned my latest project. I hope you don't mind me disturbing the quiet!
I'm just starting on the notorious knitted pineapple reticule. I'm using this pattern
, which is based on the pattern from The Lady's Assisstant
and the Kyoto pineapple.
The original pattern calls for silk, obviously, but for availability, price, and range of colors, I'm going with DMC Pearl Cotton (size 5). Mrs. Gaugin calls for four colors of yellow (check!) and four of green (I had to settle for three). I also picked up some seed beads to accent it with. Pretties!
