One a Day... getting there slowly

It's a beautifully blustery bright and cold day here - absolutely perfect for kicking around in leaves. I just love Autumn days like this - wonderful!

Do you remember the Mollie Makes Apple Jacket which was my first crochet project? The pattern has been published online today in advance of Apple Day on October 21st. If you'd like to make one of these ridiculously cute (or 'rediculous BUT cute') little items, and didn't get the magazine, you can now get it here! It's a great little project, even for total beginners - plus it doesn't take long or use much yarn! 

25 'puffs  in "hallway" colours
And so it's time to face the music on  the Hexipuffs. Last week, due to the theft of an unknown quantity, I refused to count them. So after making at least one a day this week my Tuesday tally tells me they are still not up to the magic century...


WEEK 6 TALLY: 91

....BUT it seems I'm almost 1/3 of the way to having enough greens and neutrals for my mini project of a bench seatpad!  
If it hadn't been for the distraction of the sitting room circles, I'd have made much more progress this week (I'll update on that tomorrow). 

I've still not decided whether the rest will become a little quilt, a throw, cushion pads or something else entirely and a pink, purple and a red (red!) have been knitted this week too .... I think the not knowing is part of the fun, and they are just so tactile and lovely as they are - even a few non-knitting friends appreciate delving into the basket for a fondle - so there really isn't a hurry to commit them to anything in particular. 

Before I go, just a little note to the other One a Day'ers (and the other bloggers I follow who may be reading): Our broadband is being eaten up by D's work at the moment so I'm struggling to comment but I'm reading your posts on my phone via a Reader and I am in awe of some of your amazing projects. So much inspiration and more lovely blogs to follow - I'm planning to compile a list of my current favourites when I can get online "properly"! 

You can see the other One a Day projects via the link at Carole's blog.

Hope to see you tomorrow for WIP Wednesday and a peek at those circles!

  1. I advise anyone getting the apple cozy pattern from that link not to read the comments ;) Seems the non-crafters really don't get it!

    I can't believe you have so many puffs already, I just want to come round and squish them all ;)

  8. Why can I imagine those puffs being thrown in the air like confetti? Would make for a major clean-up if done. Not that I would give a little one any ideas....

  12. I posted a similiar comment at another one a day'ers who is making this same project - I'm also making a sock yarn blanket, so even though I bought the hexapuff pattern, after I made a few I decided I was crazy & turned them into kitty toys. Yours is really beautiful, I love the way you sorted them by colors, too.

  13. Very nice! I especially love the hallway colours. Very much up my alley! Of course all of them look gorgeous and squishy and soft!

  14. Your puffs look so lovely and squishy! You are making great progress. Jx

  15. Wow! That's a ton of hexipuffs! At a guess how many would you need for a finished quilt. I'm still trying to keep myself from starting one LOL!

  16. You are a puff-making machine! I'm so impressed, and a little envious. And now you've got me thinking that I'll do best to sort them into color families before assembling. Though I suppose that can wait until I have more than 2 of them. Heh.

  17. I made one of those apple jackets last week too. Although I need to do a little jigging (or re-reading) of the pattern as it didn't seem to come out quite right.

    I'd like to find a smaller project for those delightful little hexipuffs, as much as I'd absolutely adore a huge throw made out of puffy goody, I'd like something more immediately complete.

  19. The apple jacket is adorable, will definitely be adding that to my queue! I've heard people raving about hexipuffs but didn't actually understand what they meant but they look awesome! x

  20. Love that apple jacket project. Such a cute addition on something so nutritious. A nice gift that would be for a teacher.
    Love your little hexis; I laugh at how a little thief of cuteness stowed some away.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Super cute!! You're really moving along on the hexipuffs too!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Look at all those hexipuffs! I have to admit that I think that I need to see a finished blanket in person 'cause I'm not quite convinced yet. But yours are very pretty.

    ReplyDelete
  23. The hallway colours are super, but I have to admit I love the big bright pile of them all together

    ReplyDelete
  24. I hope you do something with those puffs soon, I'm dying to see them made up!

  25. The apple looks so cute with the cozy.. the button adds to the cuteness. and your beekeeper quilt is coming along nicely..

  26. Great work with the hexipuffs. And I love those little circles - can't wait to see how that grows. Judy x

  27. They are looking lovely, even if a couple have gone astray. In my house they would be safely tucked up in my daughter's bed! I made an apple cozy recently, they're great fun, I think I'll make a batch for Christmas.
