Back in February, I decided to enter the madness that is the Beekeeper’s Quilt. Beginning with my own sock-yarn leftovers, I began making hexipuffs … which quickly led to swapping with other puff-ers (and blankie-makers, et al.). From there my decent into madness was swift and irreversible. I developed a daily puff habit, and some days puffed more than once. I’m going for 366 in 2012, and as of today I have 169 puffs completed. Given my late start, I’m actually keeping up and even catching up — I’m only 27 puffs “behind” where I ought to be today (196 puffs).
Weirdly, my puffs-to-date make a perfect hexagon of puffery, with eight puffs per side:
Lucky for me, I have lots (and LOTS) of mini skeins still to go — I’ve slowed down a bit on swapping for myself, but I’ve also become a mod in the Minimall group on Ravelry. Minis for one, Minis for all!

How long did it take you to arrange them in a way you liked?
This was a pretty fast and dirty arrange … maybe ten minutes?
Oh man. That looks so awesome and tempting, but I do not envy you all that seaming.
Not so much seaming! The corners are tied together, and the long edges just squish together. 🙂
Interesting! That makes it even more tempting.
