I saw this pattern in a magazine that I was flicking through at the local supermarket, it's called Daisy Chain (I did think of you Laura) and it was featured in the Woman's Weekly Knitting and Crochet Special (Yeah, I'm old before my time).
On holiday earlier this month I managed to snaffle up some cheap yarn at the market in Bridlington, this Wendy Sorrento, is so very soft and it was £1.90 a ball. I have since had to add to my stash as I was shocked at how easily these hexies ate up that white yarn.
Being a sucker for anything hexie and loving soft yarn I just needed to make this.
Somewhere along the way I lost concentration as when I was making my happy little piles I noticed one hexie was not quite right and I had in fact made a pentagon by mistake, can you spot it?
I was a reluctant to chuck it to one side so I made another pentagon and made a little lavender filled minky pentagon pouch for it and fixed it all together to create a new pin cushion.
Quite pleased I was able to salvage it, it's officially the softest pin cushion I own.
The card in the basket is the pattern written out so I don't have to keep grappling with the magazine, I also keep a note of what yarn I use and how much and hopefully when I have a finished article I will add a photo of what I made to the back for future reference.I am plodding on with this and hope to have a blanket to call my own soon, I have set myself a deadline of 'by the end of the year' but who knows, you can be sure that if I actually finish anything I will be shouting it from the rooftops!
Please tell me I'm not the only one who starts new projects with dozens of others still on the go?
