I wish this was smellovision

.
Totally heavenly and I am feeling inspired! A couple of months ago whilst reading PoshYarns blog I came across MoonStitches and her beautiful hexagon blanket. I was curious as to how it was made and had a play. It was then put down after all we have central heating so we don't need crochet blankets right? Then in october the boiler broke. It was quickly replaced but now I am obsessed by beautiful blankets. Mouth drooling examples can be found with Attic 24 and Posy. Mt first, a moonstitch hex is underway.
The little pinwheel circles are very absorbing. I have sixteen different delicious colours in Debbie Cashmerino Baby I want a range of different coloured circles before I turn them into a blanket as I am hoping that each hexagon will be totally different but hopefully I will have something to show in the next week or so if I can be faithful to the hex's but,I see a Hyacinth ripple and a Kidston granny in my future.

    I'm making a hemlock ring blanket at the moment, and I am finding it so comforting knitting a blanket. It's the first one I've made, for much the same reasons as you.

    Can't wait to see pics of your hexagons!
