How About More Mittenz?

Another set of Mittenz for the Rez

And here is another pair being knit 2 at a time on 2 circs.
They are really easy, just k3, p3 rib.

Remember the Babette Blanket? I put that away when I had company and now it is too hot to think about joining those panels. So it's taking a summer break.

But I've got a new crochet blanket I really want to try. It's called the Hexagon Blanket and I read about it on Ravelry. Ravelry can get one into trouble and they've got me "hooked" (bad pun intended).

The pattern is only available in a Japanese craft book and it's hard to obtain, but I think I have figured out the motif pattern pretty close to the original.
It's really just a round granny type motif with the last round making it a hexagon shape.
There's more to it's assembly and such but I'm just playing and having fun making little motifs right now.

Too funny, I nearly ordered that Japanese book last night, specifically for that hexagon pattern. And there you are, working it out from the photo!
