One A Day: An addict's binge!

I tried. I REALLY tried. But as much as I have other things on my list that I should make/finish before Christmas and the cold set in, I just couldn't stay away from the Hexipuffs. As a result, there was a 'puffing frenzy on Sunday and Monday evenings and I made.... seven. So here is my "Not Really One A Day" update:

 TALLY: 113 Hexipuffs
YARNS: Various sock yarns inc Nimu Torva, 
Knitting Goddess Mini-skeins, Noro Kureyon Sock, Regia and some Patons Dreamtime 4ply 

And because Little Miss and I haven't played with (counted/ named all the colours) and photographed them for some time, and because falling off a wagon usually involves some sort of binge - here's mine in the form of far too many pictures!

Do you see there are lots of colours still missing? Not for long :)

  1. You're almost making me want to make a beekeeper quilt...almost. I can't stand repeating things over and over again, so I just know I wont finish it.

  2. scrumptious! My pile of hexipuffs really needs to grow!!

  3. I've just worked out how you're managing to do this.... you've started knitting with your feet haven't you!?! :-D

  4. Awesome! Wow, you are making me feel like a real slacker with my granny blanket!

  5. Oh I just want to roll around in your hexipuffs and smoosh them between my fingers and throw them about. They so cute.

  6. Love the rainbow in the top photo. Can't wait to see the new colours join in.

  7. Gorgeous! Its going to be amazing when finished. I am with Layman however and know if I attempted it, it would NEVER get finished. I have enough trouble finishing larger projects that don't have lacework in them. I got bored too easily. Wish I had such patience though as this is going to be beautiful. sigh! The latest wool looks scrumptious! Your photo shoot is divine as usual. Hugs xoxox

  8. Those hexipuffs look wonderful. They look like they could turned into the most amazing wreath all laid out there.
    And that new yarn looks sooo tempting, you are destined to be a binge hexipuffer!!!

  9. Hexipuffs are fab. "Puffing Frenzy", I just love that explanation :)

  10. Gorgeous photos - really must try and build a colour wheel with mine, will be interesting to see what colours are still missing :-)

  11. Uh oh, looks like I opened the floodgates - sorry!

    Love the pictures, I want to come round to yours and join in the sorting and naming... I love things like that :)

    And I spy orange yarn in that bottom picture - can't wait to see orange puffs!

  12. Ooooh love it! I love your colours...you are making me want to play with my puffs haha! I love the color of the one in the right hand corner...greeny blue? So pretty!

  13. Fabulous hexi photos - and all that amazing yarn! Lovely, Judy x

  14. They look fab, I especially like the turquoise coloured ones with purple flecks!

  15. Your hexipuffs are so so pretty. I just want to dive into your gorgeous photos. xx

  16. Your pictures are amazing, I love the rainbow! I am so jealous, I want to play with all the cute hexipuffs too!
