Knitted hexagons and Emma Bridgewater...

These cute little mugs are from Emma Bridgewater and I fell in love with the cute little robins They are just the right size for a small cuppa or coffee....been coveting these since before Christmas, but waited for sale.
I have been very busy knitting hexagonals thanks to this lovely lady http://btchwstix.blogspot.com/2007/07/for-love-of-hexagons.html
whose blog I stumbled across as you do. So far I have made 54 and I'm thinking am nearing the end, unfortunately I was silly and have made it in Debbie Bliss Rialto Aran, I thought I was going to get more per ball than I have, so when sewn up will be more of a lap blanket...think will sew up in blanket stitch...

Don't you think the wool colours are quite Cath Kidston? Think this will live over the back of the chair in the kitchen. If your into knitting the hexagonals are easy peasy and the pattern very easy to remember....but I would definitely use a cheaper yarn if I did them again.

I like the hexagons,very pretty pastel colours.I will progress to them when I get round to finishing my blanket(now to be a cushion!)...squares.I love Emma Bridgewater china too, but it is a bit pricey.Nice you could get those lovely mugs in the sale.

I love the hexagons - think thats too advanced for me at the moment - sticking to squares for now :)

I love EB stuff - just wish there was somewhere nearby that sold a good range AND had a decent sale.

Your hexagons intrigue me. Your colors are great. It seems like the perfect project for left over skeins.
