No Socks Today...

As I typed that title, the very sad "No Dogs Allowed" chorus popped into my head, and I was sad for poor Snoopy all over again! I am not sad for me, however...I needed a bit of a palette cleanser after all the socks I have knit lately. I will probably cast on some socks soon, and I have other projects I could certainly cast on any time now (like the KAL Brickless shawl that I am not currently KAL-ing) but for now, I have reverted to the hexipuffs! Remember the hexipuffs?

That crazy project where I plan to knit 400 tiny hexagonal puffs, then connect them at the corners to create a coverlet...that's the one. It is still crazy. I am still crazy for doing it! I have let the puffs slide for the past few months, but just yesterday I realized that I am up to 150 hexipuffs, so...YAY! My newest hexipuffs have been sometimes fun...

sometimes dyed with Kool-aide (these still smell fruity!)...

sometimes they make me think of Reese Peanut Butter Cups...

and sometimes they are mix-n-match, with the yarns!

So. Many. Hexipuffs. I love each one! 

I started this crazy-puff project in January of 2013, and 6 months into 2014, I am on target for finishing all the puffs in 4 years. We will see what happens when it's time to put them together! lol! Crazy Puffs, indeed!

Do you have any crazy knitting projects? I'd love to hear about them! I feel like we'll all be less crazy if we share our crazy plans! ;o)

Thanks for stopping by, and Knit in Good Health!
