I must have missed a post at one point, but this month I managed 7 hexipuffs.

Here are this month’s highlights. I kept them in a separate bag while I was making them to keep track of how many I made.

This is done in Regia 4ply Ombre Stripes. I love this yarn so much, and made this hexi with the same cable from Socks on a Plane.

This hexi was made as a test to see how the Knitglobal yarn I got in Edinburgh (colourway: Candy) knitted up. I love this hexi, I can’t wait to make some more with the leftovers I have from the socks I knitted with this.!

 Finally, I knit a couple of hexis using leftovers from my Fruit Salad socks. These are one of my favourite puffs, I hope to get a good few knitted up from my leftovers!

I know I have a long way to go, but I finally feel like my quilt is beginning to take shape.

  1. I’ve never seen anything like this in my life. Maybe I need to go on Ravelry more.
    Where did you get the inspiration for this?

    • I saw on Ravelry! The pattern is called the Bee Keeper’s quilt. The finished projects look even more impressive, I must say!!
      The basic idea is that it’s made of hundreds of puffs made from leftover sock yarn. Thanks for commenting!
