Happy Thursday, everyone!
I mentioned on Monday that I had a fun new knitting project-- and here it is!
I've started the beekeeper's quilt! It's a blanket made of lots of little hexagonal puffs (affectionately known as hexipuffs!).
Here's one of my favorites-- a little cottage puff!
And here's my speckled egg puff.
And sometimes Bucky tolerates having them balanced on his head.
I'm up to 23 hexipuffs after a week of alternating them with working on my Moonpie Shawl.
The shawl is now finished, so until I cast on something else (maybe a sweater from Little Red in the City?), I'll be knitting away on these little guys full time! I'm going to hide little treasures sewn among the hexipuffs, too-- little antique keys I've collected, sparkly beads, a vintage subway token, and whatever other little bits and pieces I find! Eeeeeep I'm so excited about it! This is going to be a long-term project, so I'll have lots of time to accumulate pretty things to put in. Also, if you're knitting your own beekeeper's quilt, I'd love to trade mini-skeins of sock-weight yarn! Just leave a comment or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have a wonderful day!
