I.need.color. There. It's out there. I have forever bought the darker reds, dark wood tones, dark greens, blues, etc. About 5 years ago I decided enough was enough and I really wanted to brighten things up. Well, lighten things up anyways. What did I do? We were new to TN, the moving company ruined our previous furniture (which was garage sale finds and kind of a queen Anne thing going on...bluck) so I went in search and settled on a robin's egg blue couch. It just doesn't match anything. Never has. I've repeatedly told my husband that it was okay because I was going to lighten everything around us. Enter fear. I have always been afraid to get out of my comfort zone. Nope. Nada. I'm changing. I'm coming out. It's time for color. It's time for white. For what it's worth I began making a hexagon blanket with scrap yarn. The white has ran out so the blanket is going on hold for a bit but here's a snippet of what I have planned.


  1. I love this pattern!! Is it hard?

  2. Amy, it's not difficult at all. I haven't worked on it for a while and need to begin again. It's a pattern I just created based off of other hexigon patterns I've seen. When I get back to it I'd be more than happy to attempt a tutorial if you'd like.
