It is my goal to update the blog with a running total of my Hexipuff count each Thursday. I'm aiming to complete my Beekeeper's Quilt (a total of approximately 384 puffs) by the end of 2012.
As of this posting, I have completed a total of 300 hexipuffs! Only 84 more to go!
Despite having reached the major milestone of 300 puffs, I have fallen woefully behind on my hexipuffs over the last several weeks. Perhaps it was the hurricane, perhaps it was the looming deadlines of holiday knitting, or perhaps I just finally got sick of making hexipuffs. Whatever the reason, the result is that I'm no longer on pace to finish my blanket by the end of the year. And you know what? I'm okay with it.
I started on this crazy hexipuff journey at the very end of last year when I knitted up my first few "swatch" puffs to get an idea of whether or not I was really interested. Here we are 10 1/2 months later, and I've made 300 of them! Finishing in 2012 was always a self-imposed deadline, and helped keep me motivated and on track for the majority of the year. I'm certainly not giving up now; I will finish the blanket. For the immediate future, however, my focus is going to be on all of the gifts that I want to knit my loved ones for Christmas, as well as the sweater that I'm so close to finishing.
Look for more updates soon! Thanks for joining me on this crazy hexipuff journey!
