Getting Closer To Completion

This Hexagon Blanket is coming along very quickly. It's so much fun to just pull out a motif and join it up to the next set.

Since I did not want the full blanket laying on my lap, I decided to work it in sections. Below you see that I am almost done with the sections and then I have to join them with motifs in between. For that I'll have to have the whole thing on my lap, or I just might work it on a table.

Here's a close up of the sections - so much color!

And to answer Knitting Angel's question of how I choose my colors.

I just throw everything into a plastic bin and pull out the next color.
IF I don't really, really like the combination or if it's too close to the first color, then I allow myself to pull out another one.
I also tried to alternate light and dark motifs. Sometimes that worked, and sometimes it didn't.
All in all they're still combining very well.

You are joining yours as you go. I'm going to do "our" blanket with black and single crochet. I'm hoping to get a stained glass effect.

I can't decide which I like better, though....

You have a great instinct for combining colors. It's looks great!
