Other hexes and thread

thrifting find
As you can see, I have another started afghan that I get the fun of making into something else. The funny thing is, it is the same pattern as the other. I understand why this afghan was never finished; the person who made it wasn't able to keep her tension the same, or she forgot what hook she was using, and there are three sizes of block. The large and the small could no way work in the same afghan without puckering strangely.
size differnce
So, I am having to take the entire afghan apart to be able to use the blocks. The smallest blocks are still larger than the other afghan's blocks. So I am thinking I will make a few shirts for adults with this; maybe a skirt, scarf, hat, baby bonnet. Who knows, it is whatever strikes my fancy. This one did come with supplies; too bad the original maker didn't have her blocks all the same size, I would have finished the blanket for my children because that was my original goal. But, as you can see, I have started a shirt, and yes the blocks are matched so they will work together.

  1. I just love going to thrift stores. You can find all sorts of things. And the yarn and notions parts always have something interesting.
    I especially like to look through the books. People are always leaving interesting things in their books.
    When you find something, it's kind of like reading someone's diary or journal. Makes you imagine who they are and what they were doing when last reading the book.
    That was a great find.
