Granny hexagon update
|Just getting started|
The next step was to lay out a sheet as a size guide and start laying out the blanket hexagon by hexagon. Each row has been carefully planned so that no colors are repeated in the flowers. I laid out piles of each color around the perimeter of the blanket and one by one added them to the mix unit I got to the last row and found myself with not enough hexagon. Ugh round two!
I am sure I could have mathed things out so much better than I did and saved myself some frustration but in the end I am actually kind of glad it happened in the order it did. When I had the blanket all laid out and could step back and look at it I was able to visually see that I wanted to add another light color into the mix to keep the overall color scheme from being to dark. So it was back to the big bag of yarn to create another set of hexagons this time with a lilac yarn. (I was quite happy to find this yarn in my stash so not only did I find a color that balances out the blanket I am working on my goal to use up some of the yarn I have overflowing my bins.)
