more hexes

Just a quick update to show & tell you that I added some more hexagons to the project I am naming "Ode to Norah".

The hexagons are taken from the book Knitting Nature by Norah Gaughan.

To tell you about these in detail would mean violating copyright laws. You basically need to have the book to do these...I extracted them from the pattern called "Hex Coat", where they are used as a trim.

I am connecting them to each other as I go. They are 4 inches wide, and I figured I need 10 of them to achieve the circumference I need to wrap the thing around me.

I added another row starting last night to see how the hexagons would connect. It works out pretty well.

The 7 I have done now just about finished the first skein. Noro Kureyon #170, size 7 dpns. It takes me about 20 minutes to finish one. They are incredibly addictive; in a good way, of course.

What's on your needles these days?

hi Karin,
Is this book available? Hmmm, on my knitting needles I have a hat still in progress, a Spring beret in "Periwinkle" and last but not least a second sock begging to be completed and paired with it's mate.

Sure, feed my knitting insanity with my second worse weakness - books. So I have to get another book to learn another knitting technique...you evil, evil woman. I suppose once I get it, I will discover I need lots and lots of yarn in all colors...grrr.

Wow, that looks amazing!! A wrap, you say?? Great idea, hexagons are incredibly fun to knit! Love your log cabin squares as well.
