Early WIP Wednesday, puffy puffy

Yes I know, I'm posting this on Tuesday. Tomorrow I'll be having a busy day and thus I will already show you my work in progress.


Hexipuff count: 72


Yarn: too many to mention


The beekeeper's quilt is indeed progressing. 


I'm up to 72 hexipuffs right now


Don't they look cozy all together? 


More and more color is popping up in the collection and more will come. I like how the look is starting to become a bit more light and vibrant. I will be adding some more bright colors I think. 

I really love this project and I think I will really be able to make a quilt and not just a big pillow. This project is going all the way, it will grow slowly. At the and of 2012 I hope to have around 350 hexipuffs, wish me luck! 

For the scarf....no progress at all! Shame on me. But, I do have a ta-da post to share with you all later this week! 



No hop over to Tami's Amis for some more WIP's! Have a great day!

  2. It's looking fab, I'm sure you'll end up making a beautiful blanket out of them, even if it does take a while ;)

    1. The ducky puff is made by a wonderful lady in Stamford and I got it through a hexipuff swap! I should make some of my own though.

  7. Love all your puffs. I have this pattern, but have yet to join the hexipuff craze. I really want to do mine in worsted yarn.

    1. In worsted yarn will go a lot quicker, be carefull though. Once you start it is hard to stop! ;-).

  8. The little ducky puff looks adorable! Maybe you should add a few more of the colourwork patterned ones?

    1. Even though I didn't make that one (I got it in a swap) I should make some. Thanks for the suggestion!

  9. Sooooooooooo many colors. How thick is your blanket/afghan/quilt going to be with the puffs?

    1. Pretty thick, so I'm not sure if it is really that practical but it will be pretty on my sofa!

  10. Oh, MY! This is wonderful! I really love this pattern, but I'm not sure I have the patience. I especially LOVE your little duckie hexipuff!

    1. You really need a lot of patience with these, I don't think anyone can do a quilt with this pattern in a few months. You could do a pillow.

  11. Looking very colorful! I love how the placement of the hexipuffs is random, and the duckie one is really cute!

  12. You're doing so well with your puffs - it's been ages since I made any! I really need to get a few other projects finished before I feel I can get back to them.

  13. The blanket's looking great so far! I'm doing my best to keep away from the beekeeper's quilt - I don't think I'd ever finish one, lol. :)
