Hexipuff Madness Monday - Weeks 15-17

These past 3 weeks have been crazy. There were some weeks that I have been able to churn out 3 hexipuffs. I decided to wait until I had a substantial amount to show, before posting.

There was one particular day that was the hottest day of the year. A group of my friends met up to knit in an air conditioned atrium. We laughed and joked like normal. However, everyone thought we were strange. People kept walking by and taking pictures. It felt odd to be the center of attention for these passers-by. The audacity of my girls to be knitting in 97 degree weather! Hmmmmmm, Mr. Bikram might not have had an issue. Hehe

I have one thing to say to our fans. "Winter is coming".

I completed 11 within the past 3 weeks. This is great, considering I have mastered how to knit hexipuffs and still carry on an intelligent conversation. This now brings my total to 95.

Hexipuff Madness Monday - Week 14

The color of the week was grey. I completed 9 pieces, and 1 leftover blue from last week. I am averaging about 10 a week, instead of my aggressive target of 35. Life just gets in the way. I did about 2-3 a day, then went out to dinner Thursday night, went to dance class Friday night, went to school and a party on Saturday, and woke up early for school again on Sunday. After class I crashed. My brain couldn't focus on knitting.

However, I have learned that setting aggressive goals and not meeting them isn't all that bad. As long as you are comfortable with the fact that you made more progress, than if you hadn't set a goal at all. In 4 weeks, I knit more hexipuffs than I did in the months before I went on my hiatus. That makes me smile. I also managed to maintain a 99.5 average in class.

So, here are my 81 hexipuffs. I have 2 tests next weekend. Hopefully, I can knit at least 10 this week.
