Notes

each swirl takes 8.5 grams of Chroma.

The first 2 pictures of the solid swirls are my practice runs.

Notes: I got really tired of making the hex, adding the hex. I felt like it was slowing me down tremendously. I was also trying to keep the blanket somewhat a surprise for my daughter. She knows about it, has seen the pieces, but hasn’t seen it as a whole. I started making each hex, cutting a 54” tail (for the joining), weaving in the ends, and placing them in a order on a stitch holder. Then when my daughter isn’t around, or I have a good number, I join. This has really sped up the process!
