There are some beautiful hexagon blankets (different styles) on Ravelry. Attic24 blog has a good tutorial on them as well, albeit a different block from this one. B

You seem to do all right without a plan, so I wouldnt worry. Im sewing them as I go. Wrong sides together, catch the inner part of the chain on both squares.

Thanks, Fiona. I was just a little disappointed with the end result, but learnt a lot in the process. B

Im just going to oversew. If you do it carefully it looks like a feature. The trouble is deciding which colour to use... B

Hi Jill Just back from three days camping in Dorset, where I crocheted like fury! I think the join as you go method is less sturdy because there is only one thread joining at each point, rather than a whole stitch. Also, if the thread breaks then the round of crochet could unravel I suppose. However, I dont think its anything to worry about. I did a small blanket joining as I went and its fine for going on the back of the sofa as a cover up when its chilly. Hoping v much to be at Putney on Wednesday. Am off to KnitNation tomorrow for a spinning lesson with a real expert. See you soon. Love, Brigid

This hat took 1.5 skeins of Malabrigo worsted. Ive now cast on for another one adding a couple of repeats because I want it a bit more slouchy (Ive got a bigger head than my SIL). It does work up fairly quickly. Did you make it to Putney on Wednesday? it was a foul day. Brigid

The HiyaHiyas are working well so far. The needle part is nice and shiny. They screw onto the cable and theres no ridge over the join. However, the right needle has come unscrewed a couple of times while I am knitting. Now I just tighten it ever so often so its not a problem. Theyre the only interchangeable needles Ive used, so I cant compare with other brands. Im really pleased with them. Brigid

So you bought the mitten book? I think its a super book. I really ought to try some of the other patterns, but I keep coming back to the stripeys. Off to find something else to finish... B
