Tatting the Purple Pineapple and my 300th post

Here is a teaser of one of the many projects I am currently working on, unblocked of course. It is a pattern designed by the very talented Camelia Crapo Lambert, and I think this is the most fun pattern I have ever tatted. Way to go Camelia! This pattern can be found in KNOTS Vol 2, Issue 4, #10 March 1996 by Mary McCarthy. Mary sells back issues of KNOTS.
I've seen these tatted pineapples here and there and have always wanted to give it a go. In fact, this was what I was working on at the Great Wall.
I have other "BIG" projects that I must keep under my hat for if you don't see a lot of tatting around here for a little know why!

Also, I just noticed that this is my 300th post! Holy did that happen? Didn't we just celebrate the 100th post? When I reach my 500th post I will throw a big party and you are all invited!

Hi Sherry,
the doily looks terrific.
are you designing it your self, or is it a pattern that you are following?

Is there going to be free HDT for everyone at that party??? LOL! ;)

I love what I see so far! My friend Denise is addicted to crocheted pineapple designs... she's going to love this tatted design!

Hi Jeanne,
Thanks for the question.
Duh! I should've credited the author. I have now corrected my mistake.
It's by Camelia Lambert. HDT???? You are too funny!

Camelia just does wonders with the pineapple motif. I got to see much of her work in person in Montana. You've done a beautiful job with this one.
