Finding crochet time…

Since I’ve been so busy over the last few weeks I’ve really been missing my crochet. Open studios is finished and to get over that after-the-event feeling I started a new wip.
Due to two freak cake + passenger seat accidents, I needed something to cover a nasty icing stain and decided on some lovely crochet. These are stacks of basic hexagons made using a pattern picked from the lovely Beyond the square crochet motifs by Edie Eckman. This book is serious crochet eye candy, I just wished she’d picked prettier colours for the motifs – why are half of them green and orange? My little hexagons will eventually become some custom seat covers for Ruby our little car.
The yarn is Stylecraft special DK, bog standard acrylic but it comes in at least 56 great colours. In the UK you can buy the perfect selection of 17 colours from Masons for about £25, or individually for £1.50 per 100g ball.
