This just in…. I’ve officially jumped on the hexipuff bandwagon. What is a hexipuff, you ask? Why, just these teensy, multicolored stuffed hexagons, of course. They are made of leftover bits of fingering weight yarn. My slightly crazy, squirrel-like hoarding of itty bitty sock yarn scraps (and some not so itty bitty scraps, too) finally has a purpose. (I planned it all along, I tell ya. It was all part of the plan. I am not a crazy yarn lady). And the purpose of a pile of hexipuffs? Well, they are just fun and cute, so do you really need a reason?! But ultimately, the hope is to assemble my collection into my very own beekeeper’s quilt. It’s a bit of a long term project, so to keep me motivated, I’m giving it a ultra cool top-secret name: Operation Honey and will update my progress weekly.

Weekly catchup time.

Knitting: This week I’m hoping to finish my My Cup of Tea socks. And, of course, hexipuffs!

Operation Honey progress: 10 hexipuffs made, 30 to go to make my monthly goal of 40.

Watching: Season 7 of Psych is finally on Netflix. Finally. I have been waiting for-ev-er. I was missing the crazy antics of Shawn and Gus.

Linking up with KCCO and yarn along.

  1. Good luck with the hexipuffs! I have to sheepishly admit I started making some last year, then sort of forgot about them. You’re smart to set a monthly goal. 🙂

  2. I’ve been avoiding hexipuffs because they sound so addictive, but I’m sure it’s only a matter of time before I get sucked in! I have so many sock yarn scraps.
    I love your colour combination so far!

  3. I love your little puffs. I just started making mine too and they are fun. I only have one though. And I really, really love the pink puffs. If you have a thing for purple, I might have a thing for pink and red.
