Hexipuff 1 & 2

My obsession has begun after a few starts, stops and ripping.  I figured since I bought a few mini sock skeins and the Beekeeper's Quilt pattern a few months ago, that now was the time.  If you saw my last post, a fellow Raveler also motivated me into getting started already with almost 50 mini skeins she sent me through the mail!  I was pretty pleased with the puff.  It took me about five attempts but I did it and I love it.  I wish I could tell you more information about the yarn but alls I know is that it's sock yarn from the Yarn Cupboard.
My second puff looks a little wonky.  I blame the fact that I was still using the same skein for the first puff and I was getting nervous that I wouldn't have enough yarn left to complete it.  I'm not the best at getting gauge so, that was another concern.  It also didn't help that I started to bind off and realized, whoa!  I have to stuff it!  Dang you, baby brain, dang you!  I do like how the yarn went from a cool peach to a purple-ish blue though.  And, I did have more than enough to finish up the puff.  Now that I'm on to my second mini skein, I will try to relax and just enjoy the process.

Current Hexipuff habit: about a puff a day


  1. The Beekeeper's Quilt is such a cool idea! I looked up some pics on Google, and they look funky and cozy and totally awesome. It would work great as a bedspread. How many puffs do you have to make to finish a quilt?

    1. It's so sick what I've started. It takes about 102 to make a 2x2 quilt, for a 2x3 you need 167, and for a 3x4 quilt, a whopping 384! :-P

    2. Holy sheet! You better clear your schedule and get started. Maybe teach Hazel to make them and then you can take advantage of free child labor! :-)
