turns out my eldest niece kaia is the last of the nieces/nephews to get an auntie-made blanket. doesn't quite seem fair, but that's how it's ended up. so i'm hoping to make it up to her with a blanket of crocheted hexie awesomeness!
the pattern is lucy of attic24's hexagon how-to and the yarn/colorways are the same as the granny stripe i made for her baby sister hattie. i thought it would be sweet if the sisters had blankets that were similar, but not matching.
i'll be in omaha at the end of the month. part of me (the crazy-obsessive part) wonders if i can get it done by then... then the realistic part of me reminds myself that i'm also going at the end of may, so i can always deliver it then :)
only time, and my obsessive crochet tendencies, will tell
