I'm not a very tidy person. In fact Robin would say that I'm a very untidy person. My shed (studio) is where my untidiness shines through. Every now and then it gets the better of me and I have a bit of a clean up (Robin and I disagree as to what constitutes a clean up). On Saturday I tackled a cupboard where I keep my yarn. The first thing I did was bundle up a few balls of 4ply baby yarn that Mum had given me after making a decision to never knit with 4ply again after knitting Beyond Puerperium which seemed to take forever. I delved a bit deeper into the cupboard and I found this pile of crochet hexagons that I had started a long time ago - not sure exactly how long ago but I know it was a long time - with the intention of making a rug.
There's about 20 of them in varying stages of completion - some just waiting for the ends to be woven in while others needed another round. The pattern is Ruby Hexagon but my hexagons are smaller like Kelly's at Tangled yarns.
As I looked at them I thought how lovely the colours are and that it would be great to see it finished. So I made a plan to do just that.
The last time I crocheted a granny rug I followed a challenge by Meet me At Mike's called A Granny a Day until the End of May. By the end of that May I had a good start on a rug with 31 squares completed. I thought that I would do something similar for June and crochet a hexagon a day. I figure that by the end of this month I will have at least 50 hexagons which will be well on the way to having a finished rug.
So I bundled up the lovely Biggan yarn in a basket (also found in the shed) with scissors and a wool needle and put it next to my chair in front of the television.
I've started well and over the weekend I completed 2 more hexagons with ends woven in and all. Hopefully I can keep it up!
Until next time
PS I am going to weave the ends in as I go - to avoid a total breakdown at the end!
