so, my crochet masterpiece started out with just this bit of yarn.
and has now progressed to 10 or so hexagons. this is going to kill me. it's supposed to have 90 hexagons to complete the blanket, but it looks so small. i think i'm going to have to do more. ack. i love the colors though. pattern is from a book called Crochet Motif Item Publisher: Seibido Shuppan ISBN-10: 4415103650 ISBN-13: 978-4415103655
i'm using knitpicks palette yarn, in these colors: apricot, ash, bark, blush, cream, edamame, fog, hyacinth, lemon, lipstick, nutmeg, peach, red, sky, sunlight, twig. although, i am not fond of nutmeg at all. eck. and while i love the red, it's sometimes hard to mix in with the other colors.
about the pattern: this is in a japanese pattern book, however japanese crochet patterns are displayed in a diagram format, not text. so, once you learn the basics of how to read a japanese crochet pattern (which i now prefer to text patterns), you can pick up any japanese book and read the pattern even when there is no english. i learned how to read japanese patterns from this book, kyuuto! japanese crafts! lacy crochet, written in english which was an excellent beginner book.
