Notes

Using 3.25mm DPNs as I don’t like to see any stuffing showing through :)

Day 3: 13 ‘puffs done even though this is my “one a day” project - just love these little blighters :)

Day 6: I have finished 22 ‘puffs and have another 2 on the needles to knit when out and about tomorrow - the fiddly bit is casting on and splitting the stitches between the DPNs so I figure it’s easier to have that bit done when I can concentrate as the rest doesn’t require much effort. This week I’d like to try some little charts - something I’ve never done before - but I need to wait for the next batch of yarn to arrive as I don’t have enough colours yet.

Sept 20th 52 squares done - here’s the blog update

Sept 27th 66 squares and a realisation that a bedsized-quilt will take FAR too long here

Sept 30th have started more ‘puffs in different colours to make a padded seat cover for the bench in my hallway. Still not sure what to do with the others, but will continue to make them AFTER the bench is done as that should require less than 100 ‘puffs.

October 4th 86 puffs done - blogged here

October 25th Official count is now 102 ‘puffs, but there are also still a few “missing” after being kid-napped (literally). I’m probably about 40% of the way on the hall seat pad colours (the greens and beige) as I am still making a few in the other (pretty) colours as the mood takes me.

November 7th - taking a little hexi-hiatus as I’m working on a few smaller projects I’d like to finish quickly….. will be back soon!

Fell off the wagon Here’s my photo-heavy update of Dec 6th and further updates can be found using the “one a day” tag on my blog. As of Dec 13th there are 120 Hexipuffs (as a few have been donated to charity)
