I knew I said that I would'nt but I just could'nt! Once I had cleaned up the bag of Shetland wool it looked so inviting that I felt myself pulled towards a crochet hook.... and yet another blanket adventure began...
Could I find a simple hexagon pattern in my vast collection of crochet books? Could I find any on the web that werent too fussy or small or too big? Nope! In the end I had to just have a fiddle and make up my own based around the simple knowledge that it had to have 6 sides so would need 6 spaces in the centre. This one shown in a green tweedy mix shetland was the one Ive settled on as best. I dont want any colour changes on the individual motifs (partly because I am feeling too lazy to go through a 'sew a million ends in' episode and partly because I think adopting the less is more approach to home decorating is feeling very much the way to go. Im joining these in as I go too.
I will of course keep you updated with progress, which will be very slow as I only plan on doing one hex a day! I do intend printing this homemade hex pattern and how to join them in here on the blog in the near future.
Its turned very cold here and my Mum mentioned the word 'snow' again.... O no...
I went across the Moor to look at a lovely black 1950's Morris Minor today, alas we decided not to buy it. I have an old one, silently rotting away in the field... I used to love him.... we had 8 years together.
