Seeing Olive's blanket in the living room made me think about making a blanket for us here, and since Nica gave me the two balls of that yarn that she had leftover, it seemed an obvious place to start. I started pulling out odd balls of yarn from the stash. (See! It's GOOD to have a crazy amount of yarn at your fingertips!) I have added new colours, and taken some colours away, but I've ended up with this pile of yarn to make a blanket out of:
I'm making the African Flower Hexagon crochet motifs. (note: I'm not actually using this tutorial, but it seems to be the most popular)
Here are the few little hexagons that I have so far. They don't take long to make, but I will need a LOT of them!
They are kinda fun, and a little bit addicting to make, especially since I want many different colour combinations so it's fun to pick the colours for the next block.
Hmm, now....will I ever actually finish a whole blanket? We'll see! Ha! Since I'm sooooo good at finishing. :P
