One a Day – Episode 11

What a week it has been, we have been so busy, but when I sit down to write all the things we have been doing I can not think of one. Must just be busy with life I’m sure you all know how that gets when nothing much is really happening but you never seem to be stopping it’s just go, go, go all the time, this is us right now, busy doing nothing. And because of this my little corner of blog land seems to have gone unloved for a whole week, I promise I will make up for this with lots to show you this week. But first of all is my one a dayΒ  . . .


Here come the hexipuffs

10 hexipuffs were made this week

(I know the photo says 9 but I found one behind the couch :))

leaving 316 hexipuffs left to make

in 323 days

totally doable

Well that’s the stats out of the way

now on to last weeks question

β€˜keep going random or sit down and plan the colours??’

and the answer seems to be a big resounding keep going random.

All of your suggestions were great, I especially loved Secret Sheeps comment about how I will be able to remeber where all my yarn came from I love that and thought I might start letting you guys know where some of my stash has come from

This week the yellow is from my first ever crocheted blanket

I made a granny square throw for my little nephew

The orange is from my granny stripe blanket

I found it at the back of a random cupboard completely unused I must of bought too much


Also Sarah brought up if it would match and I realised that all my crochet projects are different colours, so the blanket will actually tie all the randomness together, πŸ™‚ I obviously like buying pretty new yarn and change my mind alot.

Thanks for all your comments and if you haven’t already I highly recommend reading faiths comment from last week. Hilarious!!

Last but not least, where did Mr Hexipuff go

Well to the

Wild West of course

I’ll leave you all with a


I’m off to gingerbread girl to check out all your one a days

  7. It’s amazing to think you couldn’t knit when you started out and now your hexipuffs are all perfect. Love the yellow and orange, really cheery.

    That’s a mighty fine hexipuff there, I only hope he can remember where he left his gun….maybe he had one too many in the saloon last night and forgot it this morning.
