I have made a start on a new crochet blanket which is for my youngest boy. While I was looking through Flickr over the weekend he spotted a blanket made from scraps of wool and asked if I would make him one. He hasn't got his own blanket like his brother and Little L as he could never decide on a colour scheme so him choosing multi coloured is easy enough. The pattern I am using is Ruby Hexagon Blanket which I found on Ravelry.

A little pile of hexagons started.

This pic I snapped last night as my hubbie was trying to have a nap under Little L's blanket. ( He did open his eyes and mumble at me at one point ).Her blanket seems to be permanent feature in the living room, she just keeps dragging it downstairs as soon as I put it in her room so if anyone gets chilly or sleepy, they use her blanket. The new blanket is thrown over the back of the sofa so I asked why not use that one instead but apparently he didn't want to mess it up.

Close up pics of some of the patterns I used on the blanket

Love the color scheme of the big one, and the vibrancy of the multi-colored one!

Love all the motifs and the colours, especially the one over the back of the sofa (and huge amount of work). Very inspiring. I've only ever made one crochet blanket (all one piece) it took me ages to complete. Seeing these makes me want to start another!
Thank you for sharing. Regards Julia

I love the colorful pieces! I had a crocheted pink blanket my great aunt made me as a little girl which I used through all my growing years. It is funny seeing your husband with the very pink blanket! :)
