Hexipuffs - Fun For the Whole Family!

I've gotten back on my hexipuffs lately and I'm now up to 27!  I realize that at this rate, I might have enough for a small blanket by the time Caleb graduates from college.  With a doctorate.  It doesn't help that if Caleb sees me making hexipuffs, he asks for another one.  I guess the red one is lonely, but it's not getting a friend.  Max doesn't ask for a hexipuff he just takes them.  Either flat out picks one up and walks off with it or scoots it away playing hexipuff hockey and then picks it up and tries to run.  So far, he's been unsuccessful at keeping them, but he's getting faster.  And craftier.

Sitting next to the hexipuffs is one of my new double points.  I only had one set of size 4 (3.5 mm) DPN's and I knew that the hexipuff project would be an ongoing one, so I ordered a set of Dyakcraft DPN's in the Vermont Rosewood that could be exclusive to the hexipuff project box.  I also figured it would give me an idea about their needles and I could decide if I want a set.  (I do.)  Max would also like a set.  (He's not getting one.)  The wait on these needles is long, but the needles are beautiful and well made.  The fact that they're made here in the US is important to me also.

I hope you have a great weekend and remember to guard your hexipuffs if you have them!

My hexipuffs are stacked in a large, clear canister on the living room table. It's cat-proof, but I can still see the colors and be inspired to knit. (That is, now that I'm done with Christmas knitting my attention can be allowed to return to puff-dom.)

Your pile of hexipuffs is so cute and inviting -- especially if you are an energy-filled kitten constantly on the prowl for new objects of prey and play. Perhaps I should knit up a little hexipuff just for my son's young adult kitty as a reward for being such a good house guest over the holidays.
