90 middles

March 17, 2010

I’ve been saying for some time now that I should really get back to my hexagons. It’s been almost a year since I first posted about them — the day my yarn arrived was very exciting and it wasn’t long before the blanket started taking shape. But I got distracted by other projects and my hexie has been untouched since last August.

…Until recently, that is. You might have spotted a shot of lots of crochet “middles” in the post about my new greenhouse a couple of weeks ago — well, now they’ve grown into larger middles. Lovely flowery coloured circles, waiting to be turned into hexagons and joined into the blanket.

It’s almost a shame, since they look so gorgeous in their own right as flowery circles — but hexify them I must — and the hopefully the hexy will look just as yummy as the middles do.

I’ll keep you posted.



  1. They do look gorgeous as middles, don’t they? But I’m sure the finished result will look gorgeous too, and that way, when they’re in blanket form, you’ll be able to cover yourself in their glorious colours! Love Vanessa xxx

  2. If you ever get to bored with the hexys, just give them to me. I am working on my 3rd hexy, I love it.
    Your colors all look so pretty. What kind of yarn are you using and what size needle. Sorry I discovered Flickr in Jan. but have no idea how to put pictures of it. I do e-mail Mrs. Twins back and forth, she is such a lovely lady. Nice to meet you, Cathy

  3. I never thought to do all the middles and work a bit on each as your go. I always did one whole piece at a time. Interesting.
