2015 craft resolution

Posted on


A wee while ago I found a pattern by the nauseatingly talented knitwear designer Stephanie Dosen, it's called the Beekeeper's quilt  and it's made up of hundreds of knitted hexagons or 'hexapuffs' as she calls them.

Earlier in the year I was commuting to London and managed to knit a steady one-a-day. But when we moved to Dubai the hexapuff project was neglected a little. So, now I've made it my 2015 craft resolution: a hexapuff a day and it's going great so far.
The hexapuffs use a small amount of 4-ply or sock yarn (perfect for using up odds and ends) and are knitted in the round using 3 double-pointed needles.

My Dubai hexapuffs... one day they'll be reunited with the others that are in the UK and sewn together to make my own Beekeper quilt.
