Well, you may have figured out by now that I write these Friday morning posts on Thursday nights. I’d say it might be obvious by the fact that the last few weeks I have been utterly unable to string two words together from all of the distracting activity here in the family room.

Feeding frenzy

Time has gotten away from me this week. I always like to throw at least one post up here in between the blanket-making on Monday and the link-sharing on Friday, and I almost didn’t make it this time.

How to make a straight edge on a hexagon blanket

Last week we covered how to deal with the big gaps on the sides of the blanket by filling them in with half hexagons. Today, we’ll talk about the zig-zaggy edges. By the time we’re done with this step, the blanket will be a perfect rectangle. If you look at the top edge of your […]
