What's This?

I wonder what could be inside this Cinderella lunch box? It turns out that lunch boxes are the perfect size for yarn, double points, a row counter, a darning needle, a stitch marker, and a little bag of stuffing.

Know what it's for yet?

Hexipuffs! It's my little take along kit for making hexipuffs. Finished hexipuffs get unloaded at home, but the little lunch box is perfect for hexipuffing on the go. I get bonus points because Caleb is horrified that I'm walking around with a Cinderella lunch box. As you can see, I've made four* so far and I think I've figured out a system that works for me. It takes me just about 30 minutes to make one, from casting on to weaving in the last end, so I should be able to crank out one every day in the carpool line. On days when we have other activities, I might get even more done.

*I've actually made one more hexipuff, a red one, for Caleb. As soon as he saw the first few he announced that he wanted one of his own so I let him pick out yarn and made him one. He likes to squish it in his hand.

The hexipuff bug has caught me too. Unfortunately I don't carry mine around in something so fabulous!

Trying very hard to ignore this craze. But yes, double points for mortifying the kids!

Aren't hexipuffs awesome? As soon as I finish one, I can't wait to cast on another. They are really keeping my "startitis" at bay.

Off to go locate my Scooby Doo lunch box.
