Persian Dreams Worsted

Have you ever knit a blanket in fingering weight yarn?  Probably not - it is a massive time commitment!  For those who loved my Persian Dreams blanket but didn't want to use fingering weight, here it is in worsted!

If you are new to colorwork, you can DO this!  The trickiest part is casting on in the round and getting the hexagon started.  Once you get it going, it is all smooth sailing.  

As a knitter who works relatively quick (an awful lot of designers and knitters work significantly faster than I do), I can get one of these hexagons done in about 4 hours.  In fingering weight, it would be around 16 hours.
