I had a bunch of little bits of yarn left over from various projects. Just about every color and variegated you can imagine, I had it, although interestingly, I only had a tiny bit of purple and just a small amount of blue. Green, pink, yellow, and all the shades of white imaginable made up the majority of my stockpile. What was I to do with all these little bits of yarn? None of my balls were big enough to do any kind of project, but I couldn't bear to throw them away! So I scoured the internet and came up with this: crocheting a hexagon blanket. You can see my bucketful of odds and ends, as well as the first 3 rows of a bunch of hexagons. The bag of very tiny odds and ends in the bag in the lower right corner are the pieces that are too short to do the smallest circle. I will probably throw these away.
Now, the other people that I found who did this used the same colors in each hexagon and the resulting blankets looked very "put together". But I didn't have a lot of one color, and since each hexagon had four rows, I decided to change colors and make a very multi-colored blanket. Here are my results:
Here is the entire blanket spread out on the chair. Seven rows across and eleven rows long.
And here it is draped over the couch waiting for me to get cold:
And now I am off to Michaels to buy a bunch of skeins of three colors, and I'm going to make a patriotic hexagon blanket next.
Who am I, you ask?
In 2006 I had a stroke, and every day my husband encourages me to use my remaining brain cells to the best of my ability. I love to organize, make crafts, and go on adventures (safe ones). I hope that through my blog posts, you will be encouraged to accept and make the best of challenges God throws at your life.
