Rainbow of Hexipuffs

I mentioned in my previous post that I have been able to knit a bit here and there since Sir W’s birth and I am happy to report that I have knit the 45 rainbow colored mini-skeins from Three Fates Yarn!  Here they are:

 

I absolutely loved working with this yarn and may in the future ask for another grouping.  For now I am the remnants of the yarn to work with and plan to incorporate them for a natural colored yarn to create a colorwork looking hexipuff.  I did make a couple of trial hexipuffs a couple months ago and think they turned out well.  I wasn’t super thrilled with the way the striped hexipuff turned out as the side where I alternated the yarns sort of rounded out instead of staying nice and sharp.  I will need to figure out how to remedy this for future hexipuffs or I may just leave the striped ones out all together.  They are on the bottom of this picture here:

  1. They are really pretty, a friend of mine is doing a hexipuff quilt, I think the reason you are not pleased with the striped one is because as you change colour wool the stripes are not running true which gives you the impression that the edges are not as crisp as you would like. happy hexipuffing.
