I have not crocheted or knitted in two and a half weeks, but I'm going to change that thing soon. I have already decided what my next project will be, even though it took me a while to figure it out. I'm going to make a small blanket for Papu. I've seen many pretty blanket patterns on Ravelry, but before Papu I had no reason to make one. Hooray for her existence!
There is especially one "blanket" pattern that drew my attention. It's the hexagon by Lucy of Attic24. I think her hexagons make an absolutely fabulous blanket. It wasn't Attic24 though where I first bumped into them, but Wool & Cotton. Alexandra is crocheting a hexagon blanket too and it caught my eye. I really adore her color choices:

I searched through Ravelry to find other blanket patterns that I might like, but I couldn't find a pattern more appealing than Lucy's hexagons. The making of the hexagons looked a bit tricky to me (even though Lucy's tutorial is out of doubt quite excellent), but I know that it doesn't look tricky to J.R., so I have no worries. He will teach me how to do it.
