It's time for a Hexipuff update! I've got 15 of them now so I only need eleventy billion more to make The Beekeeper's Quilt! (I'm planning to make mine bigger than the original, but how big will be dependent on how long I keep going on hexipuffs.) You can see my color scheme now, or my lack-of-color scheme, since I'm using pale neutrals. I've got one fluffypuff (Shibuiknits Silk Cloud), three silkypuffs (Hand Maiden Sea Silk), a fuzzypuff (alpaca), and a half and half puff because I ran out of one color mid puff. I'm starting with my leftovers, but eventually I'll buy yarn for this project and I'll get some less solid colors. I'll probably also make stripypuffs and I might embellish some of the puffs just for fun. I'm keeping the finished puffs in a little box but I'm running out of room and I'll need to find someplace else to store them. Some people have been putting them in large bowls, but I'm afraid if I have them in a bowl Caleb will walk off with them. If I use a large basket without a lid, Logan will walk off with them. I've got to figure out a safe place for them, where they won't get squished or stolen!

Are they stuffed with something? I can't figure out how they are poofy!

Place bowl/basket/whatever on the fireplace mantle, a upper bookshelf, or in the china cabinet. All those places work to keep my projects safe from my Siamese cats.

Your hexipuffs are lovely.

Question - are you planning to use the finished quilt as a bed covering or an afghan type thing? I'm entranced by the hexipuffs, but with being joined only at the corners, it seems only useable as a quilt.

I made one but I'm just not hooked on them for some reason. I think I might knit a flat blanket with hexagon shapes instead.

Those are some lovely puffs! I have I have some leftover Sea Silk in Smoke that I'd love to send you for your quilt if you want it.

Oh, THAT'S what you do with them! Beautiful and a beautiful idea.

Plastic lidded bin from Home Depot, or Costco should work wonders.

They are what i used to move all my yarn and fabric to Texas from California a month ago
