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

  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.

  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. :)

  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... :)
