I made a hexipuff today!
Hexipuffs are little knit hexagons for The Beekeeper's Quilt!
I have little scraps of yarn from my socks and I thought it would be fun to make a hexipuff from each blob of yarn I have left. I was thinking they would be tricky but they are EASY PEASY. I started on dpns but switched to magic loop, I find it easier. I did have a tough time on the 3 needle crochet bind off, mostly because I'm kind of clumsy but it's me, not the pattern.
I love love love this pattern, it's really cute, well laid out & clever. $5.50 is totally a bargain, because I know I'm going to just keep making little puffs over & over. I'm going to make a hexipuff or two from the leftovers of each pair of socks I make (crosses fingers!), I think I have enough yarn leftovers right now to make 5-6. It's just like sewing a scrap quilt, except these are knit & you can always add more. I like that part a lot.
This puff was made from Madelinetosh Tosh Sock in Valentine, left over from my heart socks.
These are my current socks: Charade in Cakewake Yarns Footsie in Edisto. These are REALLY fun but I've been sewing a lot lately so I haven't had a chance to work on them as much as I want too :)
Don't forget that Fruit of the Month is on sale until Saturday for only $9.95! And Saturday night Dessert of the Month for April comes out! EEK!!! Have you posted your guess what the new dessert will be on facebook yet? The first person to guess correctly gets a free pattern of their choice! woo woo!!!
I'm going to finish sewing for the day...and obsessing over this album. Don't laugh, it's soooo good!
