199 Hexi Puffs!!!

The Olympics has been a great time for me to knit puffs!!  I can knit them without looking!
 "The Bowl" contained 102 more puffs before it overflowed and was unable to have any more put into it without them falling out.  WOW!!  I didn't know I had so many.
Added to all the other puffs I had made....199 puffs!!  I keep saying that I will start sewing them together "soon", but soon has not happened yet.  I REALLY better get to sewing them soon so I can tell how many more I need to finish off a blanket.  It's funny, but I am not sick of knitting these and I can already tell that when I no longer need more, I am going to miss them!!

My books are the same as the last few weeks.  All Urban or Backyard Homesteading.  I have learned so much!!  AND my garden is thriving - picked our salad for a family dinner last night with my father-in-law, brother-in-law and nephew.  That felt so good!!

Playing along at:  Tami's WIP Wednesday and Ginny's Yarn Along.

This is going to be a giant beekeeper's quilt :) Maybe you should just keep going and going and going. After all, would it be a terrible thing to have more than one quilt? :)

aksdj I am in awe of these photos, oh my gosh. You are a machine. And I want to roll around in those hexipuffs like Scrooge McDuck in his money vault---except much cushier!

ohhh I started this project last week. So far I only have 3 puffs, but I'm waiting for my lavender to dry so I can put some in each puff. =)
I love all the colors. I think the best part will be to put them together =)

Wow, can't wait to see the blanket! You may have to make matching pillows or something so you won't miss making them. Found you at Hooking on Hump Day.
