World Wide Knit in Public Day - WWKIP Day!!!

Saturday was Worldwide Knit in Public Day. Correction......the beginning of World Wide Knit in Public WEEK. It has grown over the past few years, and we need more than a day to show off our tricks with yarn and sticks.

My knitting has been sporadic since I came back from vacation in MARCH. Yes, I am hanging my head in shame about it. So, I have decided to pick up my hexipuff project and try to remember where I left off.

If I remember correctly, I promised to knit hexipuffs from a whole skein of lavender yarn, in hopes of receiving Ravellenics badge. Well, as cool as it was to be able to knit on the plane during vacation, and while I sat by the pool......i wasn't in the mood for marathon knitting. Let's be real. I had rum punch in my system, soca music in my head, and just wanted to dance. So there went that idea.

Anyways, I decided to count up the hexipuffs that were created on various trips to work. I made 16 WOOHOOO!!!

Which brings my total for this year up to 81.

I decided to lay them out on the bed that they will eventually be covering. They look so tiny and cute.

That means only 1 thing. MUST KNIT FASTER!!!!

Wanting to add to this, I took my little hexipuff packet to Bryant Park and joined my Knatural Purls group. Knitty City sponsored the event, and it was fabulous.

I met lots of cool people and had lots of laughs. The weather was perfect for outdoor knitting. We even had some fun modeling our knitting and hair themed T-shirts. Oh, its the little things that make me happy.

My total hexipuff count overall for this project is 184, which makes this blanket project 17.6% complete.
