try/fail, try/fail, try/fail...

So I figure, depending on how I join them, I have about 1/4-1/3 of the hexagons finished. That is if I want to make a blanket for my bed. I decided this morning that maybe I should try joining a few and see what works.

3.5 hours of trial and oh so much error later, turns out... nothing.

Finally, I figured out that my connecting yarn is just too rough and stiff. I need smaller, silker.  I know exactly the brand/type. I actually have some and probably enough in denim blue.

But, in my head, all along, I had this thing about black. I have imagined the finished deal as kind of a cross between a stained glass effect and a bunch of kaleidescopes popping out from black.  So I really want black.  Amazon actually carries exactly what I want so I ordered and put the rough, stiff black yarn in the Goodwill bin.

I'm still not settled on the actual joining stitch I will use. I need to kind of retry everything with the better yarn.
