hexagaughan happiness

the beautiful gift

I am feeling very loved. Last evening I received an incredible gift.  My fan group on Ravelry, lead by the intrepid cadburyskeeper got together (in an on-line sense) and made an afghan for me.  The 6″ hexagons, they dubbed them “hexagaughans” since I am so into them, were  knit and crocheted by folks in nine countries: Austria, Australia, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Germany, Ireland, Slovenia, United States.  That so amazing to me, I smile  (and tear up a bit) every time I think about it.

They asked me my fiber preference (wool) and for some ideas of the colors I go for.  I professed my love of the muddy browns and purples often found in Amish quilts with a few shots of pink and orange thrown in for contrast, and they went to work.  When I unwrapped the gift, the whole berroco office declared that it looked like me.

I see hexagaughans inspired by Aune, Joyella, the Basalt Tank, Hex coat, spiral scarf, and snapping turtle skirt, all from Knitting Nature and even some influenced by the be-bobbled Flower child, as well as originals and  hexagons from all over the world.

A million thank yous to all involved.  I am extremely touched and proud to be the recipient of such a fabulous gift!

looks good on the couch too!
