I have wanted to make a crochet blanket since I first taught myself to crochet in July 2008, but as with all good things, they take time and dedication.
Well the weekend just gone I went on a weekend crafting retreat (will post more about this later today) and I found some time between laughing, eating and showing others how to do stuff to make my first crochet hexagon. It worked! Yay for me LOL
So I came home on Sunday and decided that this week I would do nothing but crochet, so far so good (who said housework needed to be done regulary) hehe. This is what I had made as of yesterday afternoon.
I've added a few more hexagons since then, so now my knees are nice and warm while I am working on it. In theory as they days get colder, my blankie will get bigger so more of me will me warm. God I'm a dork LOL
I'm following Lucy's fabulous tutorial over at Attic 24. Check out the rest of her blog while you are there, it is stunning.
