Stash Busting Project 2013: April Project


I've worked hard this April getting my blanket "finished". Last Sunday I attached  the last hexagon. And here it is!


It is a small blanket and hopefully will measure about 1.50 meters x 1.50 meters after attaching the border.
I have made 122 hexagons and used 9 different colours. I have no clue how many balls are in this project but I know I have used almost four balls of navy blue!



I think it is absolutely beautiful, I am so pleased! The border will have the same colours as the flowers and the last round of the hexagons. I will alternate the colours to make a multi-stripe border.

What amount did I bust this month? The blanket itself weighs a little bit over a kilo (1000 grams). I have 400 grams left for the border.

I started April with a Stash of almost 17 kilos, and right now it is almost 16 kilos!

I am hoping to bust even more in May :)

P.S. I am linking this up to a couple of parties, but for those of you who want to have a go with the flowers, here is the pattern (on a Flickr group)!
