Flower doilies


Spring has arrived in all its glory on the south side of the world! Not sure how I feel about the summer, they are pretty hot and if you are from the north side of the world you would think it’s always summer here! What I’m saying it’s not cold here at all! The heat interferes with my crafting especially the knitting and crocheting.

I’m kind of enjoying the crocheting at the moment and decided to crochet a hexagon blanket, it had to be a solid hexagon block. I hate changing colours from one row to the next so after a long period of searching and looking I decided on a hexagon flower pattern, had to kind of work my own one out, so I will share the pattern with you at a later stage, as a child my granny used to love crocheting. This pattern is for flower doilies that were placed all over the house, they were everywhere. At the time I hated them, now I think they pretty cute.

A year or two ago a bought 7 (3 x 50g balls each) bright colours of wool, I always knew I wanted to crochet something with it, but never knew what it was going to be. I also bought a brown bark colour to join the hexagon blocks and to crochet the border, this I will show you when I get there. The wool is from “Nurturing Fibres, Supertwist Double knit range” and is 100% DK merino. Each ball gives me 3 blocks with a little left. So far I have crocheted 3 of each colour, that makes it 21 blocks I still have 42 blocks to go.

I better get back to the hook!

Love to all.
