I made these hexs and put them in time out for several weeks. I hate joining hexagons. I love making hexs, and I really love the look of a hex motif afghan, BUT that’s where it ends. Joining hexs always makes me frustrated and always gives me a headache, but this time it also gave me a sore shoulder. Very sore. I’m assuming it was from the stress and frustration getting into the shoulder and tightening it up. Anyway, I write all this here as a reminder to myself.
Stop making hexagons.
Even though they’re so pretty.
They’re like the sirens of the crochet world.
This is an easy hexagon pattern. I don’t really recall which pattern I used. Either this one or this one. I actually had to quit before I ran out of motifs because I ran out of white yarn, so I wasn’t able to put a border on either. The joining was just a join-as-you-go continuation of the pattern.
Funny story, I cleaned out the yarn stash the day after I finished this and found another skein of white, but I had been so relieved to call it done that I decided to let it stay the way it is.
I really do detest the hex.
The colors are sea blue, forrest, gray mist, graphite, and glacier. The white is called white.
Completion date 11/24/14.
Another funny story. Look how much this blanket looks like this other one I made this year.
