Edging the hexagon afghan

I have decided that my hexagon blanket is big enough to cover me and keep me cozy so I have moved on to edging. I am so excited that it is nearly finished, nothing like the end of a project in sight to get you motivated. 

I had originally thought that I would edge it in the yellow that was in the centres, but when I came to it I wasn’t sure.


I tried the scallop edging from the Vintage Crochet book but felt it was too big.

I asked a couple of bloggy friends and slept on it (not the blanket – the question of what to do) and then had a go at edging with purple. 


I checked out Lucy’s hex and her edging was neater and smaller so I tried making it smaller and I am happier with the result


I love it now and if only I hadn’t ran out of wool I would be hooking now instead of blogging!


Oh well, the blanket will have to wait because we have a busy weekend. My little girl is 5 on Monday and we are having 10 of her girlfriends round to make necklaces and play games on Saturday. My parent are flying over tomorrow for a fun filled weekend of celebrations, so not alot of blogging, sewing or crocheting for me this weekend.

Whatever you do enjoy your weekend!
