Holy smokes loudxmouse...you've been busy! Cheesy

Awesome idea about spinning mini skeins of yarn to knit with Smiley  It'll be totally doable on roadtrips and lunch breaks Cheesy

Saw this yesterday and went to investigate hexipuffs.  I'm now obsessed!  I made one last night and couldn't go to bed until I finished the knitting.  I still need to stuff it and close it.  Sounds like a super fun swap and a great way to add more variety to a hexipuff creation!  Going to go work on my questionnaire right now!

I want to 'puff' but not sure what 'fingering' weight yarn is - I'm in UK and know that there is some difference in yarn weights. I'm guessing that fingering is about the same as UK 4 ply.

If some one can confirm/correct this as I am really interested in doing this, but want to make sure I can get the correct weight yarn fairly easily before committing!

yes fingering/sock/4-ply

I like 4-ply better actually....or sock since that's mainly what I make with it!


Fabby - now I know what I need Smiley

Haven't actually started 'puffing' yet, not even downloaded the pattern, but SO want to do this, and doing this will mean bigger variety of yarn quickly Cheesy

Better get my questionnaire filled in and sent off, then go get some yarn!

maybe a chair pad.... after sitting and trying to make my sewing machine work at my dining room table I might just need a chair pad.  Roll Eyes

in puff-related news, I just made up some DPN keepers after a nearly deadly run in with my knitting vs my purse

Very tempting. I have been saving up leftover fingerling yarn for this scarf:

But, wouldn't it be better to trade part of my long lengths for shorter lengths of new colors?  Wink

what a cool scarf! it looks woven!

I am in the process of hunting down variegated yarns so I can get the most bang for my buck colorwise on my BKQ.
Mini mochi has been great for this....though I REALLY disliked knitting larger projects with it. So much so that I think I will frog the gloves I made with it to make more puffs  Grin

I have a similar scarf bookmarked Cheesy

And psst.  You could always opt for the 'crochet' option to get longer lengths.  Just saying Wink
