Baby Blanket 6

I've started on the next blanket, another work colleague is expecting in the middle of October and is off on Maternity leave on 11th September. I wonder if I can get this finished by then? I wanted to do something a little different this time and was heavily inspired by Moonstitches blanket and all the wonderful blankets here. I did the maths and prototyped a few patterns and ended up with these hexagons. I've also been using her joining technique so hopefully there will be no sewing up to do - just quite a few ends to sew in!

Baby Hexagons

I'm using the many colours of Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino I have left over from previous blankets and a 3.5mm hook. I think this will have to be my commuting project over the next few weeks. If I can get the "inners" done at home then I can just take them and the cream yarn with me on the train each day. I started on Saturday, and today I have this...

I need to go and finish some more "inners" now so I will leave you with the latest Diesel window display.
I wonder if they will let me have the sheep and yarn when they change it?

How fab is that display?!! I love the new blanket design! I'm not particularly prolific with my knitting or crocheting atm- I have a book 'on'!

Ooh! I love those hexagons! I have a plan to make a blanket for the sofa using leftover sock wool - you are getting my brain working now! Did you design the hexagons yourself?
