Bloomin' CAL...Joining Together

It is great to see that Bloomin' CAL is back on with Chrissie and Ladybird Diaries. I've been missing it a little bit over the Holidays and missing the weekly motivation to keep going with my hexagon project. Recently I decided to join together the hexagons that I have crocheted already, although I have learned that I really don't like sewing motifs together.....its so off putting! I wish I had just done my usual 'join as you go' trick that I do with blankets, unless anyone has a great technique when it comes to joining hexagons.....please enlighten me! Other than that, I am really pleased with how it is turning out and I have decided I am going to make this a baby blanket, for my sanity and keep it for whenever a baby is born in my family.


Planning to crochet more hexagons sometime this week, would really like to see how this looks when it's finished!!

I am joining in on the Bloomin' CAL with Chrissie Crafts and Ladybird Diaries, so check out their pages for more projects on the Bloomin' Crochet-A-Long if you fancy joining in!

  1. It had never occurred to me to wonder how to join hexagons, I can see why it would be a pain sewing them together! They look very neat though :)

  3. I love the colors!!! And I love doing baby blankets...short and sweet. I obviously do not like joining together much either!

  4. It's looking good Hazel and a good idea to keep it a smallish project too. Joining as you go has its merits but if you keep them til the end you can play around with the lay out and that's always fun :-)

  5. You are the queen of blankets. I can see how it's more work to join hexagons the traditional way with all those sides to account for.

  9. Ha ha! The same query is going through my mind as I embark on completing 114 hexies: Surely there must be a way to JAYG? I've not seen a tute anywhere, but there must be way, there simply must! (Imagine the fame, fortune and accolades that await when we do solve this conundrum...er...) Chrissie x

  13. The blanket looks great and actually looks more stable with the hexi's sewn together.
