Things that make me say, “Hmm…”

How do yarn shops, awash in scores of skeins of wool yarn, deal with moths? (Asking for a friend.)

We have all seen the hexipuff blankets bouncing around the interwebz. Whenever I see someone making the puffs, I think Won’t that blanket be like a sheet of stiff foam rubber? How can it drape properly? Any hexipuff knitters out there to answer my question?

I have a friend who has a black and white knit hat where the white is angora yarn. And I feel the need to pet her head every time I see the hat.

I may need to acquire a skein of angora…

    LOL – just noticed my nickname for the Noisy Squash is on your list. 😀 Another good one is Drumpf (I believe that’s the family’s original last name).

    Oi! Now I’m looking avidly (possibly compulsively) at hexipuffs. *sigh*

    Asking for a friend? Oy vey – Kathleen Dames just went through Moth Trauma and she shared about it in her Ravelry Group.

    Oh and Hair Hitler…

    Sentient Yam.
    I’ve had moths. They seem to localize in specific yarns, and specific colors in specific yarns. I pitch those yarns and move on.

  6. Oh I love some angora. I have some….it is partially knitted into fingerless mitts. Im thinking it should be a fuzzy hat….so it sits

    I think it depends on how the hexipuffs are stuffed… mine aren’t stuffed at all, so I believe (if ever I sew it all together) that it will drape OK.
