In the Works

crochet hexagons

I'm slowly getting my energy back, but I still need lots of rest and down time.  So.... I crochet.  I have a couple of projects in the works I wanted to share.  First- hexagons to be made into a blanket at some point.  Here's the tutorial I've been using to make these:

And the other project is a rug made from double stranded cotton yarn!  Yay!  I'll be posting a pattern once it's done and I can photograph it in my new house :)

  2. I love the idea of a crocheting a blanket while recovering. I may have to learn how to crochet. My grandmother tried to teach me a few years ago but it was a total failure.

    1. Crocheting is the perfect recovery craft for me. It can be a little frustrating until you get the hang of it, but once you do, it's actually relaxing once you do. My grandmother taught me the basics and then I forgot about it until many years later.

  5. These are so pretty! I enjoy crocheting, but I only know a few stitches and can't really follow a pattern very well. Way back when, I used to crochet baby blankets for my friends when they had babies--rows and rows of double crochet! And not very straight... Still pretty though! I think I need to pick up a crochet needle again. Thank you for sharing and inspiring.

    1. Thanks for commenting Pam! I like crochet the best when I already have the pattern down in my mind and I don't have to refer to anything written. Just put it on automatic and go!
