Do you crochet?
I consider myself a newbie, but I’m learning quickly. The other day I wrote a post over at And Sew We Craft about easy projects for crochet newbies like me. One of the things I talked about was granny squares. I wanted a photo but I didn’t have any. I did have a project on my To Do list that was granny hexagons though…
Yes, I started another new project… I know, I know… I have many other unfinished projects! One day I might even be brave enough to list them all for you. But I really NEEDED this photo!
These hexagons are from a pattern I saw on All Hail Suburbia and the instructions are on One Loop Short. (EDIT: One Loop Short is no longer there but you can donwload the pattern for free as a PDF file from Ravelry. You may need to join Ravelry to see it, but joining is free.) They were a little fiddly to start with but I found the pictures were great to see where I went wrong on the first one. My colour choices were limited by what was in my stash since I decided to do these at 7:30pm as I sat down to watch The Polar Express with the kids. But I’m really liking these colours together – modern and not too girly. I think they’ll become a blanket but we’ll see. For now they will be the project that I take with me over the Christmas break as I spend lots of lovely days sitting and chatting with family.
Do you have a project that you’ll carry with you for Christmas visiting?
