Busy Bee

I'm not sure this is the best use of my time, but now and then, I crochet a block from the Colorful Hexagon pattern in Motif Afghans

I left off the last row because I originally thought this was going to be a baby blanket.  Why I would need to start a blanket in the middle of a bunch of half-finished projects for my baby nephew who is due any day now and my Christmas list of gift idea projects (which is due....we don't have to talk about it) is beyond me.  But I'm still compelled to make a hexagon sometimes.  Every time, it's a yellow hexagon.

I made several during a knit night a few weeks ago just because I wanted to.  I'm using Caron's Simply Soft in Sunshine.  I want this whole cheerful thing to look like a honeycomb.  I even want to find a little bee pattern to crochet and stitch onto a corner. 


I bought a skein of some slightly contrasting yellow yarn to work a single crochet stitch border around each block and then seam this together.  I wonder if one skein is enough, though. 


I have three skeins of the Caron yarn, and no other plans for it.  I could make a ton of these sweet hexagons!  And I really want to!  I'm also starting to wonder if I should have left off that seventh row to make the blocks smaller. 

Because I think this might 'bee' for me in the full size.
