Hexipuff Update


The hexipuffs continue! I seem to use between 12-14 yards per hexipuff (with fingering weight.) At this point I have mostly unique hexagons, I have not yet started creating duplicates (with one exception - I made two out of a self striping sock yarn.)

First symmetric unit

All about lace. I was looking at my leftover lace, wondering what I could do with it. Of course there are doilys and even a remnant lace scarf (I'm thinking of using mostly scraps for an advent scarf.) But then I realized that lace held double is bascially fingering weight. Horray for some lace hexipuffs!


I wanted to join the Mini Skein Mania, so I purchased some hand dyed miniskeins from Mermaid Knitting. My set had 9 colors in it, 6 of the 9 skeins pictured below (but 9 hexipuffs.) There is enough yarn that I should be able to make two hexipuffs from each miniskein, I expect to get 18 hexipuffs total out of this lot


At this rate it is going to take me years to finish this quilt, but didn't I expect that from the beginning? If you want the most up to date information on this project, check out my BeeKeeper's Quilt Ravelry page. I am trying to keep track of the yarns used and yardage consumed. Happy Knitting!
