BeeKeeper's Update

It has been a while since I've knit a hexipuff. Unfortunately, I could not remember if I knit a full round after the cast on edge or if I went straight into the increases. The answer is YES - knit a full round before starting the increases. This is part of the directions, not because I'm doing a different cast on method.  (For future reference to myself I am also doing my increases as KFB.)

Doubling up. I had made it up to this point without using any yarns twice (with one exception). I am not just trying to use some of these yarns up so I can dye new mini-skins but also so I can see how the quilt will start to fit together.

I also decided that it was time for me to make some half and half hexipuffs.  I had remnants from my remnants, too small for a full hexipuff but perfect to make a bisected one!  I will do stripes and other designs as I move forward.  

I have received some different yarns from the RAK (random act of kindness) Ravelry group.  I started knitting with some RAK yarns.  I am very excited to incorporate more different brands of yarn into my quilt!

I need more purples!  I have a LOT of greens, but I need some more purples and colors in that range.  As of the writing of this post, 33 hexipuffs have been completed.  I have a long way to go, and many more yarns to find.  Of course, I'm not allowed to buy any more yarn for a while.... BUT I did find some old remnants that may work into some awesome hexipuffs.  I love what a memory collection this quilt is coming!  


  1. Yay! It's looking amazing :) I love the hexipuffs, I wish I had the motivation to do them myself.

    1. Thanks, Lisa! I am working on this knowing that it will be a multiple year project. I am envisioning this as a quilt for a guest room bed (We don't even have a second bed or a guest room yet!)

  2. Hexipuffs looks really amazing! If I would have more time, I would make the same way as you do. Really love it! The color of the yarn - green, the creative design and the knitting styles are very good! This is totally overwhelming, to see such wonderful creation like this. Good Job.
