"...and I blame her and her and her..."

Yes, I caved in and bought The Pattern. You know the one. No? Well, here's a hint: what has six sides and has been spotted all over the knitting blogosphere and ravelry?

autumn trees

The reason for holding out as long as I did was my embarrassingly small sock yarn stash. I knit an average of one sock every two years. Not enough to make a quilt.


But what I do have is a basketful of Tahki Cotton Classic left over from the little guy's log cabin blanket just waiting to be turned into something useful. This project will definitely be a long and ongoing one. However, there is a fun sense of accomplishment after finishing a hexipuff and throwing it into the basket. Plus, embellishing them will be a great way to practice my embroidery and duplicate stitching skills. There are loads of cool charts available here.


(check out WIP Wednesday with TAMI'S AMIS for creative ideas in knitting and crochet. I blame my new hexipuff obsession on many of my fellow WIPW bloggers)

  3. Let the hexipuff maddness begin! Good luck. It's sooo tempting to start one of my own. I'm trying to stay very far away from it, I have a sock blankie that I started over a year ago thats only about eight inches along. I drag it out of hibernation every couple of months and add another row. I don't need another long term project. :)

  7. Sorry, that's something I am not getting. Maybe it's the long haul commitment. But yours is very cute. There is a One A Day meme on Tuesdays at Gingerbread Girl. Many of these puffs are showing up on the links.

  17. I keep tripping over hexipuff blog posts - seems like a very pretty and productive craze (how long can I resist?!).

    Found your blog via someone else's post via Small Things' Yarn Along. Love the name autumngeisha, love your choice of British TV cooks on your "About" page, and LOVE the things you're making. You clearly have marvellous taste!

    As you're a fan of the British period dramas, have you watched Downton Abbey yet? (BBC from last year - they're showing a second series in the UK right now and I'm MAD to be on the other side of the world and missing it - it's SOOOO good!)

  18. I'm still resisting the whole hexipuff thing. It's easy for me to resist doing something new because I have so much other stuff to get finished first. I'm not saying that I will never do hexipuffs, but I won't be doing them for quite a while.

  19. I have been seeing them everywhere, I keep asking what they are, but haven't yet gotten an answer. What does one do with a hex thingy? I've seen pretty colors and fun color combinations, but keep wondering about them.

  20. Mwah ha haaaaaaa (another one bites the dust!)

    Love your little 'puff.

    I had only a few sock yarn scraps before I stated too, that's what mini-skeins are for :D

    Enjoy your 'puffing!
