In my last post I mentioned working up some crocheted hexagons to finish a project I started a while back. Well, I made about 20 in the past week and guess what? I used the wrong hook. I don't know why, but for some reason I thought I made all my other hexagons using a 5, but really I used a 4, therefore the newest hexagons I made came out 1.5 times larger than all my others. I had to rip them all out. ALLLL OF THEM. It hurt my feelings. I didn't take pictures because when I realized that this happened, it was Sunday morning (my only day off) and I ripped out every single one and re-did them all. I had to.

I am not sure how big I plan on making this afghan. By the end of the week I should have 98 completed. I might just crochet them all together and see what it amounts to - a summer lap blanket maybe?



  1. Awww... nuts! I know just how disappointing this can be, Lauren. Don't believe for an instant that you're the only one to have this happen. (Bet it won't happen to you again though! That's usually what I end up learning from similar experiences).

    Good luck with the rest of your hexies!

  2. Can't wait to see the final product!
