A new resolution!

Another FO to show!

I've decided to hold myself accountable for my Beekeeper's Quilt since, I've lost major steam on doing it.  So, I made a mini resolution to myself.  In between each project I finish, I will knit 5 hexipuffs (I was going to do 10 but I realized at number 5, I wanted to move on).  This can be seen as killing a few birds with one stone:  It can act as a palette cleanser in between projects.  I'll be making progress in realistic increments.  I get to use all the sock yarn leftovers and mini skeins I've been hanging on to since I started this crazy project. 

Bam!  5 puffs!

The top picture are some fingerless mitts that I promised to a friend.  The pattern is called Dragon Hands by Caitlin ffrench.  I used Berrocco Sundae.  It's a bulky weight yarn so it's going to stretch a bit for the receiver's hands.  If they don't fit, I won't mind keeping these!  Now on to the next five puffs before I start kicking some butt on my cast-on-apalooza projects!
