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!
