Hexipuff Kit





I saw someone on Ravelry refer to the hexipuff craze as hexi-crack.  LOL!  It's only funny cuz it's true!  Those of us knitting them are addicted!  I picked up this little scrapbook tote on CLEARANCE at my local Michael's and am using it for my hexipuff take-along bag. Behold the cuteness!



The only thing that I don't like is the velcro closure - but since I have my yarn wound on a yarn daisy and the bag is deep, the yarn won't touch the closure.  I have my tapestry needle, knitting needles, crochet hook, foldable scissors, poly-fil, yarn, and pattern all tucked into this teeny bag.  And any puffs you finish while away can be tucked into the outer pockets (of which there are 6) as not to snag on the velco closure. :)

FYI: I have no idea if I am using this yarn daisy correctly.  It was in a bag of do-dads with no instructions.  I suspect it is for winding yarn instead of winding it on your finger, to get a ctr pull - however, when I tried to take the yarn off of the daisy, I found the yarn was down each space very deeply and tightly.  So I will just knit from it like a bobbin.  ;p

  1. cute! my hexipuff bag is just my purse. it has a center section just perfect for mini-balls and then i keep a little pencil case from borders full of the stuffing, yarn cutter, and tapestry needle (i graft them shut).
    also, i've never seen one of those daisy things before so it looks fine to me ;)

  2. I've never seen a "yarn daisy," it's cute and now I'm very curious about it. I'm going to see if I can learn more!

    (PS: Yes, another hexipuffer here. Doesn't that totally sound like druggie lingo?)

  5. FWIW - you ARE using the yarn daisy correctly from the instructions I saw when i almost bought one. I adopted several of the kids kinex type toys for mine, it is an off brand & they one had a few left, so they made great bobbins.
