Tuesday Tallies

This week was not quite as productive as last week. Lots of other fun stuff going on - science fair for the 1st and 4th graders to name one - the projects are fun, but the write up (especially for the 1st grader) takes a lot of work.
My 7 hexies. Also, these hexies with added elements take quite a bit longer to make than the other ones!!
This is my favorite of the bunch. I will definitely make more of these!
This one is ok. I liked the duplicate stitch stem and leaf, but the rose is a little wonky. It sticks out a bit more than I would like. I might try one more just to see if I can get it to look a bit better.
This one I don't like at all. It is MUCH bigger than the others and I really don't like the "holes" where the stuffing is showing through. The pattern for this is well written and easy to to follow - I might try it again in much smaller yarn and a smaller hook. Just to see if I can get it right.
I am on the fence about this one. My dh says that I should make the ruffles shorter - not have them go all the way to the ends of the hexie. He thinks that will look better. I don't know. Maybe. Will have to give it a try.
7 squares for the Gingerbread Bear Afghan
7 more kites. I almost just kept knitting on this. I like just pulling out a ball of yarn from the box and adding it in anywhere I choose. Plus, knitting these takes no brain power at all and sometimes that is just what I need!!
