Last week I thought I had done my last “your hexagons” post, but you guys surprised me once again. I received a further 42 hexagons! These parcels were probably sent to me a day or two before the 7th of February so they arrived after the deadline. Fear not, I will use these hexagons in a blanket. In fact, between the hexagons left over from last week and this batch, we have the makings of one more colourful blanket!
I know you’ve been wondering what our blankets look like. Wait no more! It was such a lovely sunny Winter’s day today I took the opportunity to string the six completed blankets against our back garden fence. I just couldn’t resist.
I will definitely post full size photos of each blanket when they’re all done, but for now here is a collage for you to enjoy.
The top left hand side pink and purple blanket is the work of San Bee of Loopsan blog. Her blanket arrived beautifully wrapped with crocheted hearts and crochet tie. Isn’t it sweet? I had to undo the ties to take the photo but will retie it exactly this way to present to the patient.
She even did a photo tutorial for making a hexagon – as if crocheting a whole blanket isn’t enough! Click here for her hexagon photo tutorial.
What do you think of our blankets? Do you think it will cheer up the recipients? You should see the colour combinations of the other blankets I still have to join up. They’re so, so, so pretty!
As I said last week, I don’t need any more hexagons. As it is, I’m crocheting away like a mad woman to get everything joined up before 28 February. Speaking of which, enough typing for now. I have blankets to make 🙂

What a fantastic achievement by everyone – they all look amazing, especially in the glorious sunshine that we have had today. Mine is almost finished now and I can’t wait to hand it over. xx

Just beautiful. I hope there will be a Croch for Kidneys 3 one day 🙂 This has been an amazing project to watch develop (even if I forgot to send my hexagons). You are an amazing woman. 🙂
P.S. thanks for the tip off on that amazeballs tutorial site!
Oh, sooo pretty and beautifully colourful. I love your blankets and am looking forward to seeing all of them.
What a fabulous collection of blankets. You are so kind doing this.
