So I’ve been doing a lot of math lately. And as always, it’s no good. Bills, percentage rates, how millions of hexagons I need to make for my afghan.
Y’all. Look upon this math and despair:
A queen-size bed = 60″ x 80″
A queen-size comforter = 72″ x 80″ (6″ of overhang on either side left and right; 0″ added length because I don’t want to cover pillows with it)
The hexagons are 4.5″ x 4″
= 16 hexagons across, 20 long
= 320 hexagons
= I might need to buy more yarn
I have… 12 hexagons.
Senior picture time again!
I timed the last hexagon I crocheted, and it took me an hour. AN HOUR. 308 hours to go? That’s 38.5 8-hour workdays, plus the time for finishing the border and weaving in ends. I’m sure I’ll get faster as I continue and figure out quicker methods, but this is so not going to get done this year.
It’s going to look so good when it’s done, though!
