Hi! Happy July!
I’m still not actively knitting. Resting, resting, resting my body (mostly wrists and arms). Well, resting them in the sense that I’m not knitting. I can’t get away from typing and writing and other hand-active activities (I made those terms up, could you tell?), because jobs.
But! I have some hexagon pictures to show you from a couple of weeks ago :)
I’m working sloooowly on the Six’es blanket (pattern by Karen S. Lauger). I want it to be as full-sized as possible, so I’m aiming for 189 hexagons. I’m currently at… (drumroll)…
I thought I had way more complete! Look at the height of that hexagon tower! That’s okay – it just means more fun time knitting hexagons in the future. (Also, look at all these crazy yarn tails!)
I also had some new yarn to knit hexagons with – I had a birthday a while ago, and was gifted a Knitpicks gift card! Here’s what I chose: four colours of Knitpicks Palette yarn!
Let’s zoom in a bit closer…
Oh yeah. LOVE those colours! I started with the pistachio green, and then cast on with the royal blue.
Blocking, as always, makes a HUGE difference with these little shapes.
Even though this project is super slow going, I’m still enjoying working up these little 6-sided jolts of colourful happy. Hopefully when my body is back in knitting shape I’ll be churning out more of them!
