It's so nice!

I actually have the yarn in stash, and I plan to make it. I don't see how I'd ever be able to use it, though, with all the work that went into it.

Braden, did you ever start this bedspread? The advantage to a pattern like this is being able to do one hexagon at a time, making it seem like a smaller project. My mom used to make similar bedspreads with tiny thread all the time. I never appreciated all that work when I was a kid. She always wanted us to enjoy what she made and not ever worry about "wearing it out." Sadly, I didn't learn to crochet until after her death. I think it helped. She lived in central MS too, by the way.

Do you have any other bedspread patterns, for either knitting or crochet?

Wow! It is pretty, but I would poke myself in the eye with my hook before I ever attempted anything that big!
