I decided to border each hexagon with just one color and while I was busy choosing my husband suggested I use a rich red. I took a look at the reds that were available and selected Serrano, from Knitpicks Shine Worsted collection. But wait, you might be thinking, the original hexagons are in sport weight! Yep. They are.
I happen to know that the worsted weight from Knitpicks is slightly thinner than the worsted weight I normally use, especially for amigurumis. I needed to make a slight adjustment to the hexagons while using the worsted yarn, I simply made 2 clusters of dc's in each space instead of 3.
|Super bright - see the clusters of 2?|
|Connecting a few hexagons as a test|

I'm loving the colors and even the red, though I am somewhat disappointed in how that edge dampens some of the colors. I think in future I would choose worsted weight entirely as well, though when I went to purchase the yarn, the sport weights had the most color variety.
I literally have no idea how big this blanket will wind up being, or if I have even bought enough yarn to finish the project. Seems a bit slap dash, but that's kinda how I like it.
