in the background...

...so while Effortless was on my needles, I admit that I cheated a little bit. I knit on several other projects here and there, sometimes for gifts, sometimes just to prove I still knew how to knit a hexipuff (oh, poor forgotten beekeeper's quilt) and sometimes just for funsies.


the most important and exciting knitting I was doing was for my Flattie Fattie Blanket (aran weight, unstuffed hexipuffs). This is going to be the most RIDICULOUSLY expensive blanket that I will ever own/make/boggle at. It's knit from Debbie Bless Cashmerino Aran, is double sided (because puffs are double sided) and it is magnificently soft and squishy


I had thought that I might use the ends of each colour to make striped puffs to fit in with the plain colours, but now I'm feeling a bit 'meh' about that idea. However, my feelings are fleeting, so team, what do you think?



so with stripes
without stripes
I have about 7 more colours to add (mainly blues and pinks) and two more neutrals. this would leave enough leftovers for an additional 5-6 striped puffs too.

Help?

  1. I vote for using the stripey ones. They do help pull it all together :-)
