Share your Project


Hi everyone :)

I have decided to add something different for Fridays. Susan asked me this week what colours I have used for my African Flower Hexagon Blanket. And it made me think about how inspiration can be found by looking at each others ideas and projects...so! Ta Da! I have decided to make Fridays Project Share Day. You can upload your project / WIP photos to an image hosting site, and then copy the URL address of the photo and paste in the widget box below. Your project / WIP will then be visible for everyone to see... :)

I will add the first share to get the ball rolling ...

This hexagon blanket has been a WIP for over a year now. I am making it for my younger daughter, and am using very bright pure cottons, because she is a super colourful personality. In the main I have used Rowan's Handknit Cotton, which is a wonderful yarn to crochet with, albeit a bit on the costly side. I have also used some local cotton yarns, and have made all the bright pink centres from a superwash merino, hand-dyed for me by my friend Dana.

Please share your projects and WIP... remember to leave a description of what you are making when you are uploading your photo to the image hosting site...then we can all click on the link to see the details :))

Have a good evening,

Hi Mar,
Thanks for visiting :)
I crochet each hexagon until I only have the last round to crochet. I then join as I crochet the last round, working in the tails of yarn as I go. I think I will do a tutorial on how to join them, perhaps that will help also :)
