So I am still determined to make a beekeepers quilt!! My week started out like this . .
as you can see, I have not even bothered to stuff them.
I’m not happy with these “take forever hexipuffs”,
and they are not exciting and squishy like here
But than the wonderful Esme Rudy taught me to knit
First we started with a cast on
ok got that
“what are the other 2 needles for
I’m use to using one hook and you want me to put these stitches on 3 needles,”
What the?? I’m a crocheter this is the scariest looking thing,
But . . .
I did it woo hoo!!!
Oh look, we’re half way now going good
hard bits over
now I’m loving the clickty clack of the needles
increases are looking on the money
and now we start the decreases
and I think I found my favourite stitch
slip slip knit
doesn’t that just sound great
my mind sings as I make this stitch
I race down the needles just to get to
slip slip knit,
And whats this a finished hexipuff in less than 2 hours on my first knitting adventure
well move over crochet hexipuffs, there’s a new kid in town and it’s knitted hexipuffs
They are soft and squishy and I have hexipuff love
I also have knitting love
I am no longer just a crocheter
I can knit
I’m not sure if I can still use this for my One a day Cal,
But I will definitely be making a beekeepers quilt now.
But you might ask
“What are you going to do with all those crocheted hexipuffs
totaling over 8 hours of loving crochet labour?”
Well don’t worry Little Princess loves them!
