Pineapple Afghan CAL- Post 1

Don’t faint anyone, I have actually managed to crochet two squares. I know it is shocking! LOL, just kidding. Surprisingly, I understand crochet more than I do knitting, but I prefer to knit then crochet. Weird I know, but that is me.

So I made on square & then thought it might be helpful if I took pictures of each round so that you all would see how each round looks. So I did. I would have…

Since I am taking part in Jessica’s Pineapple CAL, I have noticed something with my crochet & knitting styles.

"I think every woman at one point or another in their life has been called a bitch. For a long time I had a real problem with that word, I didn’t like it and I thought it was derogatory. But I’ve gotten to a place now where I’ve made a lot of peace with it. It’s been so overused and made to seem so derogatory towards woman that I’ve adapted it into an empowering feeling for myself. If I’m a bitch then I’m a bitch, if that’s what an assertive woman is to you. So I’ve sort of adapted it as a badge of honor."
