When I first found out about the existence of MadTosh’s unicorn tail mini skeins, I knew that if I ever found myself in the same room as them, I would be in trouble. I can’t help myself around tiny cute things, and tiny cute yarn is even worse. Squishy, soft, beautiful MadTosh yarn wound in tiny little skeins in a multitude of colors? Yes, please. Never mind that they are a bit unpractical for the price… when did practical ever really factor into yarn shopping? (I’m trying to work on that, I really, really am.) For little pops of color, they really are a wee bit of fun.
When I found a giant box of them at the yarn store during the Boxing Day sale, I couldn’t help myself. It took much self restraint to limit myself to only four tails. During a sale, something clicks on in your brain that says, “Buy more! Think of all your saving! You deserve it for how shopping savvy you are.” And just look how cute they look wound up in little cakes!
I think I may be able to squeeze 3-4 hexipuffs out of each mini skein, working in stripes and spots, and whatever fun combinations I feel like at the moment. I love the idea of using these hexipuffs to give me little pops of crazy, spunky, bright color scattered throughout my beekeeper quilt (when it gets finished approximately 12.63 years from now at the pace I’m working at).
