My Creative Space: hexies, squares and blankies
Here's my little offering for today - some more of my teeny tiny granny squares for the random multicoloured afghan I hope to make one day :) I love these for summer crochet - no huge, heavy pieces of warm knitting sitting on my lap! Another perfect project for summer small pieces is the hexipuff - discovered these during Blogtoberfest - little hexagons you knit in the round, then stuff with a little wadding before binding off! (It's a project called the 'Beekeeper's Quilt') I haven't stuffed any yet as I'm not sure I'll ever need anything that warm in Oz, but when I looked at Tiny Owl's site just to check out the finished item once again, for inspiration - it's gorgeous - I was tempted to fill a few as they are so perfectly squishy and squashy. Might make good ornaments for the Christmas tree?
When the kids asked what I was going to do with all these hexipuffs and squares, I answered 'make blankets' and they rolled their eyes with a 'not more blankets' kind of look. Well, I might as well admit it now - I am a blankie addict - I can't help myself. They are so comfy and nuturing. And I think imagining what the finished article will look and feel like is part of the fun.
