... is back!!
Last year I joined in with the One A Day project hosted by Carole over at Ginger Bread Girl. It was definitely the motivating factor that got my hexagon blanket finished.
Last week Carole posted that she was starting up again but at the time I said I didn't really have any One A Day suitable projects...
Oh what I didn't know then! Over the weekend I was reading Heathers latest post on Little Tin Bird and it was all over. That fire ignited in my head and heart, I just HAD to make myself a blanket like this!
You'll know that I'm on a bit of a yarn de-stash so this looks perfect. I want to use pinks/purples and some green from my Stylecraft bag. Here's what I've hooked up so far
And because there's not a lot to see, here's them arranged differently. How exciting ;-)
I've followed Heathers tutorial which is really easy and can be found here. It's the same one that she's used for her beautiful Elmer blankets as well.
They're super quick to make, I think I can get one done in about 15 minutes, which may sound a lot but trust me when you're making granny squares with rounds in different colours this is much quicker.
Unlike Heather who is far more generous, I will be keeping my blanket all for me! Mostly because J has been stealing my hexagons (I've had to rescue it as my end weaving wasn't very good!).
Ahh... now speaking of J, you might be wondering why this is a secret project! I've already said it's for me so you know I'm not hiding it from it's recipient. No. I just can't bring myself to tell J I'm making another blanket when we have so many already (handmade & otherwise) because I can't quite believe I'm doing this again when I swore I wouldn't!
This one will be different, I'm thinking more of a lap blanket so hopefully much smaller. We'll see.
Anywho, pop over to Caroles blog to see if anyone else has joined in :D
