More progress on the Hexaghan!

I think I have 44 hex's now, and still another 20 or so to join. I'm still working it in stages - making 30 hex's, edging them, then joining them, repeat. I'll be done just in time for steamy, humid July!

There are some problems - some buckling's happening. Not all on the hexs come out the same size because of all the different weight yarns I'm using. I'm hoping when they are all together with a good edging, they'll flatten out. And a solid blocking. (Maybe I should block each hex as I go? Ug. Another step!)

Here's the blanket...

And again...

Close ups of some of my favorites...

Yay! Onward!

Okay, so I've finally started to put some of my hex's together! I only have about 50 done, but I thought before I keep going, I should get an idea how they fit together in case there is something I can learn there. Good thing I did - it turns out about 20 of my hex's are too big and make puckers when joined. I'm undoing and redoing them with a smaller hook.

I really liked the finished look of Shine's - she had done a black edging around each hex and then joined them in black. I have a ton of navy, so black wasn't happenin', I instead went neutral. I think the way to keep interested and motivated in the project is to do it in heats. When I get 30 more hex's I'll edge them, and then join them...then make 30 more, edge and join, into infinity.

This felt really good to do. It feels totally do-able now, and I feel accomplished for actually having something to share! Woo hoo!

Has anyone seen a pattern for rollerskates? A bootie pattern would work. I'm thinking of just doing a sneaker bootie and them making little balls for wheels. But it would be cool to get some more directed guidance.

Milobo - that looks great! I would join with a dark color. I like the way shine's blanket turned out with black as the unifying color. Can't wait to see more!

How did you make the scarf? Did you carry colors alongside?  Or do one color, than the next, than the next?

Windsor Button off Tremont at the Park Ave stop is great. They have lots of stuff at rather affordable prices (for Boston). I think it's on Temple Place, just 2 blocks toward the Common from the Finagle a Bagel.

Okay, these are crocheted items!  I didn't realize I accidently posted on the knitting board...how does one move these things?
