The pattern also suggests using double-pointed needles which I found to be far too unweildy and have opted to use two circular needles. A neat trick is to use two different types/brands of circulars. Always keep the same needle at the ‘front’ of the hexipuff, and the other in back. This helps lessen confusion. Also, I would use 24″ length needles. I have one 16″ and one 24″, but sometimes the 16″ gets a bit . . . . fiddly. But, I’ll have to make a trip to the craft store to change that.
With practice, they do get easier and in no time at all you will have whipped one out! It’s a fabulous, fun and satisfying ‘take-along’ project, or something to work on ‘in-between’ larger projects to distract you but keep you busy as well.
There you have it! If I am very diligent . . . in a few months I will have plenty of these beautiful hexigons to put together into a warm, cozy blanket! And if I am SUPER diligent, perhaps I will take advantage of the Options charts to work duplicate stich patterns on to the center of some of the hexipuffs. *sigh*
I haven’t been around in quite some time! I really have no explanation for my ‘blogging’ absence. I beg your forgiveness! I do so appreciate all your attentions! I hope you will comment, so I can . . . feel the love!!! ~Yours truly, GMa Ellen
