After finishing a few larger knitting and crocheting projects, I decided I needed a small-ish take along project that could easily be tossed in my bag as we travelled here and there with our 3 children over the next few weeks.
A long time ago I had pinned Bunny Mummy's crocheted hexagon pattern and I figured it was as good of time as ever to give it a try.
So I picked a plethora of bright, rainbow colours from my stash and got to work:
Gosh! How I love watching those hexis pile up!
After I had 10 of each colour I began stitching them together. Even though I LOVED the stacked rainbow hexis, I wasn't really sure if I enjoyed them in the random fashion shown here:
But I went with it and I am glad I did.
Of course, this afghan was supposed to use up some of those odd balls of yarn that had been kicking around. But by the end, I had to buy more lime green and more purple to finish it up. Back those 2 balls went - into my stash!!
After the hexis were sewn together, I crocheted a thick edging of rainbow double crochets.
I think the border is may favourite part!!
It was hard to photograph this baby sized blanket inside. I could never get the true colours of the yarn. So on a sunny day last week, my blanket posed in a few places in the yard.
Here he is lounging on the Muskoka chair:
And draped over a yet-to-be-planted window box.
And here he is in full effect....
When I look at this picture I see that some of my edging is kind of wonky, but it adds charm, right??
