One a Day: Week 3 update

As it's Tuesday, here's my "One a Day" update. 

Since last week I seem to have had very little time for knitting but HAVE somehow managed to knit at least one new hexipuff every day. Some lighter colours have made their way into the pile this week and as this is the first time I've pulled them all out since last Tuesday I'm actually quite pleased with how it's coming along. 

WEEK 3 TALLY: 52 Hexipuffs
YARNS: Various sock yarns inc Nimu Torva, 
Knitting Goddess Mini-skeins, Noro Kureyon and Regia

I'll be back tomorrow with a "Work in Progress" update of the other bits and pieces that have been keeping me amused (including the Tiny Bunnies), but in the meantime I have hungry children to feed.... again (they are CONSTANTLY hungry!). 


  1. Your hexis are looking good all piled up together, about how many do you think you will need?

    Kids are always hungry, I dread to think what m food bill will be like when I have three strapping lads eating me out of house and home, they don't do too badly now!

  2. I love how coordinated your puffs are, it's gonna be such a beautiful quilt!

    Must resist the lure of the puffs... I have enough stuff I want to knit... Must resist!

  3. I really like seeing all those together, such bright colours...

    although will be fun to put together :(

  4. Perfect pile of pretty pink, purple and plue puffs! (Plue is an offical word in my world for bluey-purple!)

    You and Faith make the most of your little mouths now... my 3 are all in their twenties, all still at home and they bring PARTNERS to dinner... my food bills are horrendous..don't be fooled - I love having them here :)x

  5. No, no, no. No. I'm not going into hexipuffs now! ;-) Although ...

  6. Wow, gorgeous colours Sarah, how long to make enough for a whole quilt...winter is coming!

  7. I am definitely loving seeing all of these terrific hexipuffs in beautiful colors. It's going to be a great blanket!

  8. looking good. such vibrant colours.

  9. Loving the colors - can't wait to see it put together!

  10. looking fab!! look forward to your WIP :) xx

  11. Oh my goodness that is a LOT of puffs! They look great though and can't wait to see them all put together :)

  16. Wow! That is an awesome picture! Well done on all those lovely Hexi puffs. Just beautiful!

  17. When are you going to start sewing them together? And when you've finished it can I pleeeease squoosh it?
    I constantly hear, "I'm hungry, what else is there to eat?" even after a full plate of pasta and pudding! She's a mere slip of a girl, where does she put it all?

  20. Oooh, I am in love with your colours. Right up my street. They are warming my heart.

  21. Beautiful colours - looking forward to seeing how they fit together. Judy x

  22. I would love to run my hands through this scrummie little pile, if they didn't take so long to make I would be right there with you but I know I'm far too impatient. I really love them, your blanket will be very special! x

  23. Even though they are slow going it's going to look amazing when it's done... Just try not to think about how long that might be! Have a great week, Janette xo
