Hexagons!

Officially, awesomely, done!


This shows the "back":


You may recall that I was going to put a yellow border on it, but I tried it and decided—this is a modern blankie; no border necessary. I like it with the natural edge.



Now it sits on a shelf in my friend Beth's room patiently awaiting winter. Let's hope it's a cold one!

And, for me--NOW WHAT??? (Maybe finish this special blankie for me and Greg?)

  8. Hi Becki! So nice that you like my blanket! I do not believe I used a specific pattern for this one. I probably found a free granny-hexagon pattern on the internet somewhere, and I may have customized it a bit. Then I slipstitched them together once I had them all completed (or I may have used single crochet to join them).
