Last year loyal readers may remember that we had a blog week, well there is going to be another one this year – whoop! Last year for whatever reason, I never finished my week’s posting, so I’ve challenged myself to finish last years before this years begins. Experimental blogging day…

Before you ask, no, I don’t smoke. I’m referring to the other addictive form of puffing, making hexipuffs. Last year a pattern came out that has created a whirlwind of activity in knitting circles, that pattern is The Bee Keeper’s Quilt. It is basically a blanket made up of hundreds…
