Hex Blanket finished!!!

I did it! I managed to get this blanket finished before the end of the year! This is pretty much all I have been working on over my winter break, but it has been worth it. I am quite pleased with how this turned out. It used up a ton of my acrylic yarn and... Continue Reading →

Hex Blanket progress (12)

The Hex Blanket is still inching along. I got quite a few more hexes joined and have pinned the next batch into place. There's only 16 more hexes left to join now in total. At this point I think I will count this blanket as "finished" for the year if I can get everything joined... Continue Reading →

Hex Blanket progress (11)

I have so much momentum on this blanket all of a sudden and it's great! Over the last few days I've finished making the last few hexes I need to complete the project. I decided to use identical hexes for the corners as a small accent. There's still a ton of yarn left in some... Continue Reading →

Hex Blanket progress (10)

I actually made some very solid progress on my blanket over the weekend. I finished attaching the last full round of hexes, and started filling in the ends a bit so the finished blanket will be longer than it is wide. At this point the length and width are at their finished sizes and I... Continue Reading →

Hex Blanket progress (9)

The weather was so beautiful over the weekend so of course I used it as an excuse to work on my blanket again. I still haven't joined more hexes but I have finished weaving in all of the ends so far. It feels great going into the Fall with a completely clean slate. I'm ready... Continue Reading →

Hex Blanket progress (8)

This is the first time I've had a Hex Blanket update since June! It's so nice that the weather is beginning to cool off and I can work on it without feeling like I am going to melt. I didn't attach any new hexes, but I did spend a bunch of time weaving in ends.... Continue Reading →

Hex Blanket progress (7)

It was cool enough over the long weekend that I actually felt like working on my blanket for a little while. I didn't get much joining done, but I did get the entire next round of hexes laid out and held in place with stitch markers. I also did some weaving of ends, but there's... Continue Reading →

Hex Blanket progress (6)

I have some decent blanket progress to report. I actually finished joining another round of hexes. You can see that I still have a ton of ends to weave in because I've been willfully ignoring them as I go. You can also see that the blanket is taking up most of the floor space in...

Hex Blanket progress (5)

I joined a few more hexes over the weekend. I've been adding one or two every once in a while because I can't quite get motivated to sit down and join a bunch at a time. The thing that has kept my momentum up at all is that I've completely given up on weaving in... Continue Reading →

Four more hexagons

I really love making these hexes. They're a perfect size for me to feel like I've completed something quickly without hurting my elbow with too much crochet. Sadly I'm getting close to being done with making them and need to focus on joining them, which is less fun. The other struggle I have with this... Continue Reading →

Some new Hexagons

I have still been making new hexagons here and there, even though I have been neglecting my joining. My interest in this project has been faltering a bit, which is pushing me toward choosing a smaller afghan size and finishing sooner. If I can make about 17 more hexes I will have enough for a...

Hex Blanket progress (4)

I haven't been working on this blanket very much, but I do keep making hexes here and there. I also laid out the next round so I can start attaching them, and joined a few. My preference is to lay the blanket on the floor and lay out the hexes for the next round so... Continue Reading →
