So I decided last week that I wanted to start work on another blanket or in fact a throw for one of my living room settees, but this time I wanted it to be made of loads of little hexagons..."aha good idea!" I hear you say..
But the catch was...I had no idea at all how to even begin to crochet a hexagon I mean to be honest I needed to think to remember that hexagons were the shapes with 6 sides!!
So I ploughed through my vast collection of unused crochet books in search of patterns
But nothing was quite right...I just couldn't get them to lie flat GRRRRRRR
Then I remembered I'd seen on pattern on Lucy's Blog and after hurrying to jot it down on loads of tiny post-it notes because my printer is out of ink and I couldn't find my notebook!
So far I'm only 5 hexagons in but I'm loving them lots and lots already.
Anyways onto other things now and these three lovely bloggers were the first to comment on my 'Pay It Forward' post so if you can all let me have your Names and addresses I'll get your parcels in the post soon...I'm aiming for september rather than August to get this completed as I know August will be a hugely busy month for me.
