Hope all r doing well. From my side I am busy crocheting for a sale in my church in September. I have completed some projects and one is a hexagon crochet blanket. Whenever I see a hexagon in crochet it tempts me to start something on it. This time I started with a plan of doing a blanket for a single bed. But I ended up doing a baby blanket. I like to crochet hexagons. But I didn't like the joining part. So much to join and so many odd ends. So I finished it into a baby blanket. On the whole it is a relaxing process. This is my finished blanket.
I made 5 hexagon flowers with 7 hexagons. Each hexagon is a of 5 rounds of solid granny hexagon . Around that I added 12 hexagons to make another round. Then made half hexagon flower to bring the blanket to rectangle shape.
For joining I place two hexagons with the right sides together and sew then thru the corresponding back loops.
Yarn used : 4 ply acrylic yarn from pradhan.
Hook used : 4 mm
Pattern: Solid granny hexagon.
I am happy that I have completed this blanket within a short period concentrating only on this. One more crochet bag is completed. Waiting for a zipper to get attached. It will take only an hour to do it. But it is getting postponed. I don't know why this happens with most of my projects. Final touch takes a long time. Now a days I am addicted to see the videos of creative grandma in you tube. She teaches crochet stitches that creates a nice texture and have done some swatches watching her videos. As my next crochet project I am planning to make another bag with one of those stitches.
On my embroidery hoop now
Will come up about this in my next post. Till then, Happy crocheting and embroidering.
