Being on holiday this week, I somehow ended up with less time for knitting, since I've been here, there and everywhere in the past few days instead of hanging on the couch watching movies as usual. Well actually, I've been parked on Mother's couch for a couple of days, but obviously the internet has provided a ready distraction instead... I did discover that the Beekeeper Quilt hexies make a good train project though - I usually read on journeys but my latest book is more something I'd read in bite sized chunks, plus everything I need for knitting fits in a wee make up case, so it's easy to throw into my handbag.
The other day someone asked how many hexies I'd made so far, so I tipped them out the bag and counted them up. The total was 69, which I'm not sure is better or worse than I thought! I'd probably have guessed a higher number but then the bag looked fairly stashed with them because I'm making them with DK wool instead of the recommended 4 ply since, between Mother and I, we have a huge stash of DK to use up. I've made all plain ones though, which was fine until I came across these cool designs on Pinterest...
