All the squishy hexipuffs











I've been resisting the urge to start in on tiny owl knit's The Beekeeper's Quilt ever since I first saw it. I ignored the designer's enthusiasm over the squishiness of the hexipuffs. I pretended I had forgotten about the little bits of left over sock yarn I had been hoarding. I pretended I didn't absolutely love the look of the little embroidered puffs popping up all over Pinterest. I WOULD RESIST.

Clearly I didn't resist. I mean, have you seen that blanket? It's adorable.




I'm keeping track of my hexipuffs over on ravelry, where I shamelessly stole the stats layout from ravelry user velmalikevelvet - but I thought I'd copy my stats over here where I've got some room to play and add pictures.
