Hi all I hope everone is having a great weekend! I have been pretty focused on making mini Easter Baskets for my babies at work. I originally wanted to loom knit them but had difficulty finding the right pattern. I could have used the Jelly Bean basket from Loomlore but I made several of them a couple of years ago and wanted something a bit quicker to make so I turned to crochet first I tried this pattern mini easter basket I discovered that I can no longer crochet using plastic bags, makes my hands hurt too much, so than I tried it again ( it is the little pink basket in the backgound of the above picture) I used 2strands of ww yarn but it wasn’t quite what I wanted so I went back to searching and found this cute little pattern mini basket and it is perfect each little basket takes about 20 minutes to make leaving me time to make the marshmellow bunnies the bunnies take a bit longer to make but I love them they are so cute. Last weekend I found a link for a knit basket that I thought I would convert to the loom, but so far have not had time to try it. I was going to post a link for it but can’t find the site right now maybe I will remember later what I did with it. At some point I really need to get my links better organized, but not today it is back to bunnies nd baskets for me. Have a great weekend.

hi all I created a new page for the Puff A Long just click on the link at the top of the page.

Hi all, I have been completely obsessed with the little hexapuffs used in

the Beekeepers Quilt I purchased the pattern and have been trying different ways of making them. I have used loomknit and crochet. The first one I

tried I used the Kiss fine gauge 1 loom and the instructions as written in the pattern. This is it:

It came out kinda of small and squatty

The next one I tried was still using the Kiss fg 1 loom except this time I made it using short rows, essentially I made a sock heel and then immediately made another and then I Kitchener stitched the opening closed. It came out too large:

I did not really care for the way it turned out.

Next I tried one using the Kiss FG 2 loom and once again followed the pattern instructions again, It came out to be the size called for in the pattern 3 inches of the 3 I like this one the best:

Next I tried some crocheted ones I tried 3 different ones:

Hexapuff Lap Quilt

The Apiary Puff

Crochet Hexagon Puff

I like the Crochet Hexagon Puffs the best, it is the pink one in the photo.

I am thinking about holding a Hexapuff LAL or CAL here on my blog. You would need to purchase the original pattern from Tiny Owl Knits on Ravelry, though the size you make yours will be up to you.

It would not start for a few weeks and would be a somewhat longterm project. If you are interested in joining please reply in the comments of this post.

Other than the hexapuffs I haven’t gotten much else done lately I started Mr. Bunny from in Loom Class but still need to finish him up, he is lacking 1 arm and 2 legs. I also crochet a dishcloth and scrubbie but they are for an exchange so can’t post photos yet.
