A different type of hexagon

I spend an awful lot of time waiting.  Waiting for school pickups, waiting for netball trainings, waiting for ballet rehearsals.  

There is nothing better than sitting in a nice, quiet car, doing my handwork.  It's never a chore.  

I try hard to have at least one 'go to' project - the project that I can pick up and put down without much thought.  That project that doesn't take up much room.  

This is the current project.  I think I need about 400 hexies to make a decent sized crochet afghan.  I've made probably about fifty or sixty.  

My only problem with it is that it suddenly seems very dark.  Lots of black.  Perhaps I should have swapped the red and the blue around.  Too late now, though I'm sure I'll love it when it's done.

I do struggle in getting them all the same size, tension must be an issue.  All part of the learning curve, I guess.

I hope you've all had a lovely weekend, mine was lovely and restful, and I've already packed the school bags and laid out the school clothes for tomorrow.  

I am totally winning at adulting this week!


  1. Would love to know about your international quilting day?

  2. I love your colors. But then, I do like to pop colors off of black backgrounds.
