A new doily, learning to read written instructions

Howdy there, I know I barely come here and it is because I have a lot going on and just haven't had the time.  But here I'am.  I have been trying to teach myself to learn and understand written instruction.    So I started this sweet doily which looked simple enough by looking at it.  It is always a challenge even if I do it by eye.  Because I don't never know what needle sized they used. 
So here is my doily from a book I have had for years...
     The beginning was pretty simple that part was written instructions. 
     This as well

     All this was easy...
     But after this it went to diagram only which I thought was crazy why didn't they keep it at both.  Because between the two I might had figured the next steps out easier.  Gosh I took it out like five times UGH...  but after trail and tribulation I got it I think lol well it looks good so far...
  
     It looks simple as pie, but boy I struggled with it, but I believe I got it right now...  So far so good.  Determination !!!  I still have quite a bit more to do..  So I will be back later with the results...  

             I'm also working on this one as well.  But this I'm doing by eye from a photo, so far so good too...

     I'm thus far now making pineapples for the second time.  The difference being I'm making multiples and the first was one large one...  Fun..
See you soon with love Janice
