my creative space ...


... is about fixing (and keeping fixed) gaping holes in this Hex Bag that belongs to an 8 year old! 

And that reminds me, I will probably try and get some of this done ...   


... starting with the dreaded weaving-in-ends!

Head over here for more creative spaces.

Does that 8 yr. old know just how lucky she is to have a HEX bag in such stunning colors? WOW, I want to be 8 again.

Love it.

Did you join that as you went along? I have yet to do that but it seems like it must be easier?? :-) My baby grannies are still waiting to be joined together so I can finish my bag!

hey, I hate weaving in ends too and my sis in law popped a link for me about a method for changing colours without creating ends..the links in a comment under my last post(not the creative space one, the one before it, so take a peek!)
love your hexagons!

so glad you popped in at my blog so I can browse your pages and look at, for instance, your beautiful crochet projects this hexagon bag is really stunning !
weaving ends is part of the job i guess and not my favorite part either ! i try to crochet the most i can as i go so there are less threads to weave afterwards...
(ps : i love crochet, too !)

Ohhh the dreaded weaving in ends..UGH..I have a few projects literally unfinished because of that exact issue haha...

Those hex's are gorgeous though. They need to be shown off so hurry up :P

Thanks ladies for your kind words!

Jenni, yes, it's a join-as-you-go method. There's a tutorial for it on Attic24 (Hexagon How To). I just wish I'd weave-as- I-go too!

Dash robin, I'm going to give that a go! Thank you!

Amanda, will try! :)

I've just been catching up on yur last few posts and I must say I am drooling over all your gorgeous crochet projects. I have scrolled up and down a few times now. I love everything you're working on. Have fun finishing it all off. And thanks once more for joining the swap.

Beautiful colours, I'm working on a Hex blanket too (my first). Just using up all the odds and ends I have here so there is no colour co-ordination at all (next one I do there will be)
