Hexagon Knitting

I have a link on the right that will take you to my post with this pattern. These are knit hexagons. If you cannot crochet, or just love these in general, they are the project for you. I can whip two or three of these off in a night, when I am so inclined. The beauty of them is they require very little yarn. So all those bits and pieces you do not know what to do with? Perfect. I have been doing them for a year or two and have amassed probably 20 or 30. The pattern is actually from my mum that had it on a tea stained piece of paper that, as I recall, had no title just "1970" typed at the top. I typed the pattern out and posted it a while back, for your pleasure ladies. Mostly because the most hits I have from google are "Knit Hexagon" and "Knitted Hexagon". I believe the blanket above may be felted a wee bit.

I delivered the baby booties to my nephew and the baby on Sunday and didn't they just love them? So proud. A truly gorgeous baby. My husband held her for a while and gave me that "aw come on, let's have another look". Ever seen that look? It can be very scary when you have an almost 20 year old. (I was married very, very young).

And finally, the most gorgeous Louisa Harding bag. Love.

Have a great week, ladies.

Yikes, are you really thinking of taking the plunge again?! I think mine are too young for that to seem even remotely a good idea yet :D

The hexagons look great :)

Beautiful photos today.

Sometimes I dream of taking up the crochet hook again. I really like the look of these hexagons, especially the felted blanket.

I'm not surprised that the booties were so appreciated by the new parents. Another baby?! Perhaps your husband will be interested to know how much fun grands are (in a few years) and that you can send them home before bedtime. Perfect solution! :D

Like the knitted hexagons, they're great.
Me, my eldest is 18 and Holly is 9 and I've decided I'm too old to go there again, I enjoy my sleep far too much.
Take care.

Just how young ??? ;)
My husband always gets that look around babies. Good thing he had that little procedure...At this point this is what pets are for!

Thanks for the hexagon link, I can't crochet so this is just what I need. Finished my first hexagon this morning, I'm making a baby blanket for my soon to be born baby! Married 21 years - I was very young too!!

I love all the eye candy in this post! That basket of yarn looks fabulous.

I can't believe you are making that cute little afghan. Great minds think alike I guess ;-)? It's one of my daughter's and my favorites! I have the very same picture saved on my computer but can't remember where I originally found it. So glad you've posted a pattern too. Actually, Jess (my daugher) and I started our version of it a few months ago (using a pattern she had found online) with the intention of giving it to her little boy, but we just didn't like the way the colors were looking, so it's been in the hibernation pile for a while now. You've inspired me to try again. Can't wait to see how yours turns out!

I absolutely love the hexagon blanket. I'm going to post a link to it with my knitting group. We're always looking for great stash busters.
