Powering along

All up now I've made 30 circles!

We worked out that there are approximately 504 colour combinations available to me with the 9 colours I'm using! So that means that I should be able to finish the blanket without repeating a colour combination! I'm still undecided about what colour to use as the "hex" part and for joining them all together.

As luck would have it, I am currently knitting something in dark navy, so I took this photo of a circle with each colour on the edge placed on my knitting to get an idea of what it might look like.

I do like the way it looks. Any opinions welcomed :)

I do also love the fuschia and the purple, but if I use one of those then all the circles that finish with those colours will maybe be a little lost. I'm not sure. For the moment though I'm going to just continue making circles until I have used up all my yarn. I'll made a decision on the final colour then. That should give me plenty of time to think about it!

My preference would be for a lighter background colour but that's just the way I see it in my head!

Just a thought, if you use the same colour for all of them I think you may find that the hexagon pattern may get a little lost. The Attic24 pattern that I think you are using joins them as you go, so the hexagons will blend into each other. Maybe use two differnt colours, a light and a dark and alternate them if you want them to look similar. I don't know if you have looked on flickr at the Attic24 Inspired Group. There are heaps of ideas on there.

I'm going to have to think about it for a while I think!

Jane, I thought about that, but I really do love the circles more than the actual hex shape! I also prefer the look of the projects that have used the one colour more than the ones that are mixed up. I think I'd have a hard time putting all the colours together and having to live with colours that maybe aren't so great next to each other! I'm a bit anal like that!
