Isn't this a pretty blanket? I saw it a couple of days ago on Crochetville, and then today noticed that Afghaniac had posted the pattern. I think it's just so pretty and feminine-looking. I made my first hexagon earlier today, but then I had to leave for some family time. I'm going to be making a few more during the race tonight. Mine are coming out to be 10 inches across at the widest points of the hexagon (corner to corner).
Barnaby has instructed me to make all the flowers the same color (yellow middle with white petals) and the edging and border the same as the flower petals (white). He rarely ever chimes in with an opinion, so I'm taking his advice on this one. I'm using up more of the Red Heart yarn I have tons of for the rest in various colors. Here's the first one:
I just realized after posting this picture that this "hexagon" has 7 sides! I screwed up. Oh, well. You get the idea. I guess I'll be starting over though. I see the flower has seven petals too. I guess that's where the trouble started. Dang it. :(
I also have the new Ripple blanket to work on, but I like to have several things going at once so if I get bored or tired of the repetition, I have something to pick up. Here's a picture of the beginning of it.
I think I'm going to call it Butter Rum Ripple.
The lightest yellow is ILTY in Cream, the darker yellow is ILTY in Banana (it's more the color of a canteloupe than a banana though, and the rusty-brown color is Vanna's Choice Something. I can't remember and don't feel like digging out the wrapper. It's a speckled rusty-brown and cream.
