Well, I thought I would show you my progress on the hexagon blanket..
I'm plodding along with it... I'm really enjoying making it but it's really taking quite a long time to grow in size if I'm honest..!
The hexagons take a while longer to crochet compared to granny squares or something else and they definitely take a bit more concentration. There's nothing worse than getting round to the last stitches when your connecting one hexagon to another and then realising that you made a mistake somewhere along the way. It's sooo frustrating having to unravel a round right back to the beginning!
I'm using the colours in quite a random way which makes a change for me.. I'm usually trying to really match up the right colours to one another, but this time I wanted to go for a slightly more brighter, more eye-catching look. I really wasn't sure if I liked it at first, but I think I do now. What do you think..?!
I'm not sure what kind of edging I could crochet around it though...
This is how far I've got so far... My aim is to get it reaalllly big so that I can have it on the bed.. : ) That may take a while though..! Somehow I can see myself ending up getting distracted and starting another project before I get this blanket finished..!!
Oh and also, I went to get Rose weighed by the health visitor's today and she's now 12lb 12oz's. A healthy girl!
