My First Hexipuffs & Yummy Yarn

I'm been hexipuffing for a bit and I wanted to show you my first batch (no cookies involved) of hexipuffs.  Let me tell you, they're not gorgeous, or perfect, or adorable; okay, maybe a little bit adorable.  Some of these are a little lopsided, twisty, and look kind of like some sort of concoction but don't worry, I will improve over time (hopefully).

Here they are altogether!  The three on the left side of the picture are already connected.  I wasn't sure how to sew them together so I experimented and found a way that looks nice.  Whenever I finished a hexipuff I would go around to my family members saying. "I made another one!!  Isn't it adorable??"

The yarn I'm using is called Felici Finger Self Striping Sock Yarn in Tiki.  I love the colors but sometimes look a bit muddy.  I also found some "mystery" sock yarn in my stash (greenish and purplish) and tried to make a hexipuff out of it.  It looks super ugly and I won't be knitting with it again.

I also have some YARN to share with you.......

Here is one skein of Crazy Mill End.  It's really colorful and and bright.  The colors don't really go together but I like the yarn anyways.  I love the blend: llama, wool, and alpaca!! Oooh!

Here is some wonderific Cascade 220 Eco Duo.  I love, love, LOVE the colors, and when you knit it up it looks gradient, SO COOL!!  This yarn is very soft, a like to stroke and pet it (that sounds weird).  I was making a scarf out of this but I frogged it.

What are your favorite yarns?  Leave a comment below this notebook entry and let me know!  Have a wonderful rest of your day!

Happy Knitting,


  1. Your hexipuffs look great! Are you planning to make a quilt with them or something smaller? :) I hope you continue with the project and update your progress. I love knitting with Malabrigo yarn and Cascade yarn--or any yarns that are soft and a bit stretchy. Good luck with your BKPQ! :)

    1. Thanks! I'm going to make a nice, big quilt out of these. I just bought some Malabrigo yarn for the first time and I'm super excited to knit with it. Oh, I love Cascade yarns, and I love to use Cascade 220 for my amigurumis and toys. :)

  2. Fun puffin? Hope you liked the pattern~I'm obsessed with sock yarn right now and my fave is probably Madelinetosh tosh sock and Useful Poison--great colors!

    1. Yup, it sure is tons of fun! I love the pattern very much, thanks! :D
