It started on a whimsy; with already a few projects in various stages of work in progress, I really needed to focus and finish them up. However, I badly needed a boost to my tired self. And the vibrant colours of the pack of Noro is peeking out from underneath the shelf where I've kept them, teasing me. So I dived in and started hooking.
Ah, the pleasure and the addictiveness. They are like potato chips you can't stop at one. My major crafty pursuit these past few weekends have been with this.
This week work has returned to it's relentless pace. And these hexagons have been my solace. There hasn't been much time to work on them (this project is not portable as I join in one at a time as I hook along). But they make me happy just thinking of them during the week.
The bag Noro Silk Garden and Kureyon I have in stash is getting used up prettty fast. I decided to recycled my Fat Fat Cardigan and Silk Kerchief to harvest the yarn. And it is not sufficient for my satisfaction. I want this to be bigger.
This bag of replenishment Noro came in the mail. Yes, a destash project has resulted in my buying more yarn but it is completely justified, I'm sure you'll think so too.
Here are the details so far.
The colours :
Silk Garden: 274, 246, 88, 47
Kureyon: 196, 199
I'm using the tutorial at Lucy Attic 24 for the hexagons.
