hex blanket

09.09.'13 - 16.08.'14 

A lot happened while randomly crochet this blanket. 

/
 
A hundredandeightyfour hexagons.
Forty+ different colours of 4 ply wool and occasionally DK.
No two hexagons alike. 
Made with leftover wool and few odd skeins (purchased on impulse, knowing that one day I'd use them for something). 
Hoarded Collected in time (only the wool for the border was bought on purpose).
Crocheted with a 3.25mm hook.


I cannot describe the feeling of actually have finished this project!

thank you Estella, quite happy and relieved because I can finally move on! :)

thank you Sarah-Jane, I realized that the ends are odds but I felt it's part of it (lack of will to make another row of hexagons really) ;^)

I've been obsessed with hexagons lately (and also pineapples), and seeing your blanket makes me want to do an artwork full of colorful hexagons!

thank you all, I thanked you singularly already but for some reason my comments appear randomly.
so thank you,Magda, Louise, Jolana, mundochiquinino, blue eyed night owl, Nicole, Lotte and Yuko Jones.

Yuko: I studied as a painter then got stuck for quite few years,however, I kept using my crafty skills to exercise form and to keep studying colours, this hex blanket is so, a study of colours more than anything :)
