On the round-trip between Baltimore and Bethesda?
Apparently you can knit five, although mine aren’t really hexipuffs. I’m doing hexiflats for my Beekeeper’s Quilt. My older sister visited for Thanksgiving so I took advantage of the car ride to knit hexipuffs. I haven’t worked on my quilt in about six weeks, and I have an overflowing bin of sport, sock, and lace weight yarn remnants waiting to become hexiflats.
Thanksgiving was really great. Lots of food and parade/dog-show watching (I swear Molly-the-doodle avidly watched the dog show).Plus, I finished a prototype of the holiday wreath I’ve been working on. It’s a cabled wreath with a poinsettia.
Ignore the rubber duckies on the shelf…I do enjoy my rubber ducky collecting but that’s a whole other story. Anyway, the wreath is about ten hours of knitting and maybe two hours of assembly so it’s not a long project. The cabled piece takes less than one skein of wool-ease worsted weight and the poinsettia took approximately 30 yards of green and less than 75 yards of cranberry.
I have the pattern partially written up, but I’m going to do another one with darker wool before I finish the pattern. This wreath is perfect for indoors where you’re not looking at it from a distance, but the cables are two subtle to see if you’re more than 15-20 feet away. I have some darker wool I’m going to use and the center cable will be wider to stand out more. Plus, I think instead of a poinsettia, the wreath may need pompoms – green and cranberry pompoms.
Happy Knitting —Hopefully, I’ll have another wreath to share in a couple of days.
