(Otherwise known as Love Your Library - Page 1)
A year ago, I heard about a cute little pattern, guaranteed to use up your leftover sock yarn, called The Beekeeper's Quilt by Tiny Owl Knits. Using up leftovers? That seemed right up my alley and I promptly started the journey.
I even joined a Ravelry group dedicated to posting pictures of Hexipuffs on my Instagram.
This is a really cute and easy pattern and will be a favorite in my library. After a year of on and off Hexipuff crafting - the thing I've learned the most?
Don't misplace your bag of completed Hexipuffs!
I have a basket that I fill with Hexipuffs as I complete them. It isn't big enough to hold them all so I dump them into a shopping bag every so often.
This is the shopping bag of missing Hexipuffs! Ack! I think it has about sixty puffs - maybe even eighty. I'm thinking of just ripping apart my sewing room and yarn closet. Unfortunately, I was stashing things left and right before Christmas and the bag might be hiding almost anywhere.
Today, I laid out the "unbagged" Hexipuffs I could find and lined them up - 160 in rows.
I referred back to my copy of the pattern and, technically, I could quit and make the smallest size. I really want to make the 3x4 size, however, which requires 384 puffs. So, I'll be puffing away in the New Year as well.
Probably because I only have sock yarn in colors that I like, I am pleased at how well the colors are meshing up.
Time to start looking for that buried treasure!
