Crochet Hexagon Blanket is Finished!

Since its inception on November 15, 2011, I knew this crocheted hexagon blanket was going to be breath-taking.  With over 17 different colors combinations in a wonderful yarn, how could it not be?  I knew this would be a one-of-a-kind crocheted afghan.

Project Details:

As I was recently reminded, I said in one of my posts that, and I quote, “I don’t crochet afghans”.  But with two crocheted afghans under my belt (this hexy one and another hexagon baby blanket), I’m starting to be converted to the world of crocheted afghans.

Afghans are different than crocheting hats.  In a way, they’re therapeutic.  Especially afghans made from motifs.  Completing a large project is more satisfying.  Watching something grow piece-by-piece is exciting.  It’s all about the thrill and there’s nothing like a crocheter’s high.  Wait, or is it a runner’s high?  Whatever – crocheting and running are the same as far as I’m concerned.  (But don’t listen to me – clearly I’m no runner.)

Well, hexy is finished and I am so very proud of her.  I mailed her off a few weeks ago to live at her new home.  Thought saying goodbye was bittersweet, I’m overjoyed knowing she’ll be sharing her rainbow of joy with others for years to come.

I wish you all could see the beauty of this blanket in person, but these pictures will have to do.
