Ombre Hexipuffs

ombre hexipuffs

Two posts in one day, what a treat!  I need to get myself focused againI’m completely unfocused over here!  I have always been the type of knitter/crocheter who jumps from project to project, but recently my rate of jumping has been absolutely absurd (and if I’m saying that, it must be really bad…)  I must have stopped and started at least 4 projects in the past month – nothing holds my interest.  A lot of it has to do with the balancing act of primarily taking care of Miss Emme, yarn dyeing, and chores (because while Mr. Yarny Cakes doesn’t mind if the house looks like a wreck, I feel out of sorts when the clutter takes over).
Part of the problem may be that now that summer time is my crochet season, but I have no idea what I want to crochet!  Lord knows I have enough yarn to make just about anything, but nothing is striking my fancy.  ~sigh~  At times like this, I typically revert to an easy, dependable pattern that will just keep my hands busy so a babette is always a possibility, but that is way too many ends to weave in.  So all that happens is that I end up right back at the beekeeper’s quilt.  All of my knitting roads seem to lead back to this easy portable project.  To that end, I rummaged through my yarn room and found some yarns that work for an ombre of pinks.

I’ll have to admit, my attention span these days is so short that the color changes every few rows of a hexipuff is keeping me interested in these little guys.  I fear that I will end up tired of the colors before long so I’ll have to change things up!  The yarns I am using are cascade heritage sock – love this stuff, lots of yarn, great colors, and the price isn’t outrageous.

  1. I’m using the Cascade Heritage for the first time and I love it, too! It was so hard to choose a color.

    The puffs are adorable and the ombre stripes look great.
