One a Day: Hexipuff update

So on Wednesday I banned myself from further hexipuffing until I'd made some baby booties. There's nothing like a bit of motivation ...... 

Needles: 3mm

This is a very nice pattern - it's really easy and quick - but I would prefer to have made something in the round with this yarn - I don't really like seams in variegated yarn, in fact, I don't like seams at all.
Edited: Thanks go to Christine for sending me this link - for the alternative version of the pattern (knitted in the round!) 

Unfortunately, they also came out tiny! I'm sure that no full-term baby would fit into these so I'm going to have to make another pair. These will have to wait a few months until Kiki is finished (the kit arrived earlier in the week so the head should be in progress over the weekend but I will need to wait for 2 more magazine issues until I get to her feet!) and if they won't fit her, they may be frogged to become little smooshy geometric shapes *grin*

Talking of which, the mini-skeins arrived from The Knitting Goddess and they are GORGEOUS!  Even My Boy was quite taken by them ("wow - are they knitted dreadlocks for ME?") There will certainly be more of these coming our way. 

After spotting some fab knits yesterday I'm feeling inspired to get working on something other than the Beekeeper's Quilt. The White Stuff have some gorgeous ladies' knits in-store and Mini-Boden has some fab kids' woollies as well as an entire section of the catalogue shot amidst shelves of yarn! So this weekend I'll also be back to pattern-searching and pinning things on Pinterest


Little Miss is looking incredibly cute today, so I'm off to kiss her now. 

 The usual Finished Objects at Tami's Amis seems to have been delayed by a powercut.  
Please remember to enter my craft book giveaway over the weekend 
as the winner will be selected on Monday.

Have a wonderful weekend!

  9. So, I've been following a fellow knitting/crocheting twitter lately. And recently she has been twitting a lot about hexipuffs. Now reading these posts I'm going; "What are hexipuffs?" After yet another twit about them I had to see what they were....And now I'm hooked! (thanks :p) Bought the pattern yesterday and have completed my very first hexipuff today. And I have joined Ravelry. Which I love!
