Yarn along - hexi blanket update

I'm joining in with Ginny for this week’s yarn along; as usual I can't wait to see what everyone else is up to. I don't have a lot new to share with you this week as I'm still working on my hexagon blanket but it's progressing well and I do feel very pleased with it. I've just changed from trebles to doubles and I'm still deciding on whether to add a decorative edge or not - what do you think?
I think the colours work really well together and the blanket is keeping it's shape perfectly. It already keeps my knees cosy when I am busy hooking round and round.

I'm about halfway through “The Seamstress” and Kate was right the book is a bit slow at first but is well worth persevering with. I have also started to read "The Happy Project" but more about that tomorrow.

Don't forget to pop over to see Ginny here 

talk soon x


  1. I love the colours, and I am very impressed by the perfect shape - my crochet meanders along ......

  2. What great colors! I love the hexagon blanket and I'm sure it's very meditative to crochet.

  3. A beautiful and stunning blanket with gorgeous colours. I think I would leave it as it is, an edging may take away from the main blanket.


  4. It's wonderful. It looks as though you've already blocked it! Love those colours too. x

  5. Your blanket is beautiful! :)

  6. Nice blanket Sue. A border finishes off nicely I reckon.

  9. It's beautiful ... I think I like it borderless ... Bee xx

  11. Love the blanket and the colours work really well together. Why not add a border on one section and see how it looks you can always take it back out. Thanks for the recommendation on the book. :)

  12. Your blanket looks great and the colours work really well together. Why not add a border to one section and see how it looks, you can always take it back out if you don't like it. Thanks for the book recommendation. :)

  13. Such a nice blanket!! The colours are great, and personally I like simple single crochet borders :)
    Have a great day

  14. I love your blanket. You are right the colors work very well together. I think a border would g well, but it depends. Off whom you are making it for. You can make it more masculine or more feminine dependenimg on who u are going to give it to... :)

  15. Oh wow, your blankie is just fab - I know I've said it before, but I really love the colours you've chosen. I think a nice border would finish it off nicely too.
    Have fun!

  16. Oh my! I LOVE it. Its got such great cozy feel to it, the colors really look good. What kind of decorative edge have you in mind?

  17. hello sue,

  18. Sue, your blanket is just beautiful! I love the colors you used and it's truly lovely just as it is, but a decorative edge would be nice as well. :) Paulette

  19. like colors, shape, even crocheting -- I've done squares, I'll have to try a hexi.

  20. You are right, the colours do look lovely together.
