The Layout

Flower Blanket Layout 1

After laying out my hexagons for the Modern Flower Blanket, I decided that I would like to have an additional row top and bottom. This means I need to make another 12 motifs. That won’t take too long. I’m liking how it’s turning out overall!

Final Seven–Maybe

Flower Blanket 11

Here’s the last of the 79 hexagons called for in the Modern Blanket of Flowers I’m making. I need to lay them out and see what I think of the size. I used a smaller hook than called for so I might make more motifs. I still have some variegated left, believe it or not!

Hot Pad vs Pot Holder

My mom expressed a desire for some pot holders for her kitchen. I happened to have some suitable cotton on hand to make some. She likes frou frou things so I thought I’d look up some fancy pot holder patterns on Ravelry. This led me to the conclusion that many people don’t know the difference between a hot pad and a pot holder. Either that or they’ve never actually cooked anything.

Clue: if your design has LARGE HOLES IN IT, it will be useless as a pot holder. You might as well grab the dang pan with your bare hand. Though on the bright side, the resulting burn from the holey pot holder will be an interesting pattern…

Lots of Ginseng

Flower Blanket 10

Seventeen more hexagons for my Modern Blanket of Flowers. Only 7 more to go. I might make more because I’m using a smaller hook than called for, so my motifs are a little small. I’ll see what it looks like. The yarn is Loops & Threads Impecable in Ginseng. The color is off because the batteries are dead on my camera and I got the bright idea of using the camera on the iPod Touch. Could be better. But at least I got a photo!

Six Pastels

Flower Blanket 9

Six more hexagons for my Modern Flower Blanket. I’m kind of on the fence about the pastel color of them, but they’re in now! I have more of this pastel color but I’ll save it to the end to see if I need any more.

Oceans Fifteen

Flower Blanket 8

Another 15 motifs for the garden blanket. This is RHSS Ocean. I got 18 motifs out of the skein. That’s the last of the ocean, now.

The Garden Continues

Flower Blanket 7

Three more for the hexagon blanket. The one on top was a small scrap so it’s a singlet. I’ve started on a partial skein of RHSS Ocean, represented by the other two. I think my DTRs are getting a bit better.
