The Beekeeper's Quilt and the adorable, colorful hexipuffs are all over the place. Everyone is making hexipuffs.
Just one. What could be the harm in that? I have oodles of leftover yarn rolling around, and each hexipuff takes just a smidge. I knit the hexipuff, stuffed it and closed the end - quick and easy. A soft, cushy mini pillow. All I need is several hundred more and I can have a whole quilt. This could be a problem, I said to myself. Before I knew it I was digging through baskets and bags, looking for yarn remnants, lining up more colors to use. Just one more hexipuff.
I have a lot of dyeing on my plate right now, and this new obsession could be either really good or really bad. It's nice to have a quick knitting fix when I'm so busy. But if I can't stop making them, they are a total distraction and time suck. I'll never get any work done.
Be warned - hexipuffs are potato chip knitting. You can't knit just one.
