A Good Yarn.... Pile That Is

You know that saying "When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade"
Well I change that to "When family and friends give you yarn, you make African Flower Hexagons" 

 You see today I cleaned out the hall closet, I should of took a before picture so I could do a before and after but I didn't think about it. So what I did do was take a picture of the worsted weight yarn I have.  That's to say I have other types of yarn not shown. Pitiful
 Two of the large containers came out of the hall closet.
If you crochet or knit, maybe this happens to you too but I have family and friends who will give me yarn. And as you can see I can not say no to free yarn.
I realize I really need to start using it and giving some away because it has just been too much.
Decide to go online and find a new pattern (easy). I've done granny squares in the past and wanted something fresh. Love hexagons in quilts so this pattern just spoke to me.

I found very good instruction at Heidi Bears. Step by step tutorial that is very easy to follow. The one on the left is my first attempt, not bad, a little loose. Right is better and tighter, I like that one the best.
Now when I'm in the mood to crochet I'll  have a project to work on. There is also a Flicker group with lot of wonderful pictures.

  1. You know, I've never really cared for granny squares, but I do believe I could get onboard with granny hexagons!


Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
