Crochet Hexagon Love

100_9556a

I have come to believe you can use hexagons to make anything.  This might even already be a scientific fact.

I have also adopted this credo:  when in doubt, make it hot pink.

I could have gone on and on with these, happily into the sunset, waving over my shoulder; but I only needed ten.  I can hardly wait to show you what they’re for. 

Thank you, Laura, for the lovely award!  I’m passing it on to one of my fave bloggers, the Lovely Leah, whose new ripple blanket is giving me a huge case of the wants.  If you don’t already know Leah, you should.  Get on over there!

  11. Funny hexagon scientific fact. Remember learning this in Jr High...Bees use hexagons for hives--scientists could not find a more space efficient and structurally sound way to store honey--bees knows the value of the hexagon! Thanks for sharing link to pattern for the boots!
