Flower to Hex Blankets

Thought I would update you on my progress with the blankets. I had started by making the hexes without the last round. It started getting a bit monotonous. A stack of hexes is pretty and all, but by no means is it very blankety. I started to think, “what’s the use of the join-as-you-go method, if you don’t join AS you go, but wait ’til the end?” So I started connecting hexes. It was so satisfying.

I do so adore seeing all those hexes lovingly snuggled up to each other.

Imagine-John-Lennon

John Lennon!!! The exhibit was in Montclair. I love going to Montclair, it’s a great city, with awesome art and stores. So it was not surprising that they ended up with the exhibit.

Pieces of my day

I love Wednesdays. Every other(ish) Wednesday morning is started by going to visit my friend, Jenn. Her girls are 3 1/2 and 4 1/2, wonderful playmates for my 2 year old girls. The four girls play in the playroom, and Jenn and I sit in the living room, chatting and crafting. Most of the time knitting or crocheting. When we don’t go to Jenn’s we tend to have PJs day at home. The middle of our day goes as most. In the girls eat dinner by themselves, we play a bit, read, and off to bed they go. Now on Wednesday evenings Doug does not get home until after midnight. Don’t get me wrong, I love my husband, but I love my me time, also. So once the girls go to bed I make myself a dinner without the restrictions of what Doug will (or won’t) eat. I just love my Wednesdays!

This was a Jenn day! Today Jenn worked on her Christmas-y colored dishcloths, while I worked on my flower/hex blankets. It was a very nice morning chatting and yarning,

Yummy Baked Goodness!

I try to keep a stock of homemade mixes, so when I want to make something, it is quick and easy. Last week I ran out of both my waffle mix, and my banana bread/muffin mix. So into the kitchen I went. I hung my label from the cabinet handle. You may think the format of the label is a bit odd, but it is made to wrap around a jar. I tend to give my mixes as gifts.

I measured everything into my trusty food processor and gave it a quick zip. I found this is the best way to get it well mixed. Before you zip it up, take a moment, look at the pretty layers.

My projects.

I found the perfect yarn and made the perfect hexagon for my Fort Blanket project. Look at these pretty colors! After browsing around looking for patterns I saw a beautiful six petal flower that I knew would become the hexagon I was searching for. I took my hook in hand and experimented a bit. The finished hex was better than I had dreamed.
