Sunny Sunday Crochet

Hello Lovelies ,

today I've been in a happy crochet place :0)........

Sitting on my bed sewing in a few ends on my latest hexagons, whilst admiring the lovely piles of grannies on my bedside table.
I didn't want to give up on the hexagon pattern as I really like it a lot . So I've made a few using the same yarn as I'm using for my granny squares....the ones you can see in my header and I've posted about here.

Ummmmm , I love these colours ..........

Here is the begining of the next few , I'm making these production line style instead of compleating one before starting on the next, it just seems easier when all the rounds differ....less mistakes ,hopefully !

So , somehow I now have two blankets , using the same colours , on the go at the same time. It'll be interesting to see which one gets finished first !!

Whilst I was working my way through a mountain of clean laundry to put away ( all line dried ..yay) the bright sun shining in on my youngests blanket made me very happy , and distracted me from one of my least favourite jobs :0)....

I made this back in 2009 using colours he chose . Since I posted this picture on Flickr I've altered it by removing the border (which tended to curl up ) and added some more rows so it fits nicely on the end of his bed. It has no border so I can easily make it bigger if I want . I really love this happy , sunny little blanket. There's something I find  brilliantly satisfying about a giant granny square ...........

well I hope you Lovelies liked this burst of colour, I'll leave you with some more  sunny goodness and wish you a happy week :0)

    I love your hexagons too. Beautiful use of colours!

    Have a super week!

  12. Love your hexagons, so beautiful! Also love the cheerful colors too! Amazing work!

  13. Such a lovely post - I adore those hexagons! The big granny square looks great in the sunlight like that too :)

    Much love,

  14. Must try out that hexagon pattern - it's the nicest one I have seen. Can't wait to see it all made up. Hurry up!! Love the large granny square blanket too - I love the way you started it, using the same bright colour for the first few rounds. x

  15. Your work is beautiful! The colors you have picked just scream Spring!!

  16. Ohhh! Lots of pretty colours. There is an award on my blog for you!

  17. Love your crochet! The hexagon pattern is stunning.

  18. I love the hexagon pattern your using! Is it on your blog anywhere? Lovely colours!

  19. I love the hexagons and the huge granny square! I made a big granny square for my sister out of scraps of yarn, the colour combinations were pretty crazy. I pretended that I meant for it to look tacky and awful, haha. I am making hexagons at the moment, and have a granny stripe blanket at the moment, so I know what it's like to have two on the go at once!

  20. Beautiful, colourful post! That hexie pattern is so lovely! You have so perfect spring flowers! I hope you have sunny week! Teje
