small neat worlds in crochet

A while ago, I posted about crocheting tiny hexagons in an effort to execute this painting in yarn.  The original artwork was an effort to execute crochet in oil pastel, so it made sense (to me, anyway) to do it the other way around as well.

Just found the old blog post... it was quite a while ago!  About a year and a half... where does the time go?  I haven't been doing a lot of crochet in that time, but every now and then I would pick up a hook and make a few more little hexagons. 
 
 

 
A couple of weeks ago I decided it was time to actually do something with them,
and ta-daaa... it's finished!

I also finished my CMYK cushion...

 Now to finish the blanket I started... um... maybe two years ago?
 
I used Biggan Design yarn for both projects... 4 ply for the hexagon cushion and 8 ply for the squares cushion.  For the crocheters who are interested in more info about the exact colours, hook sizes, etc., I'll update my Ravelry page soon (there's a link at the top right of this page).
