On Becoming Hexagonal

I began my hexapuff odyssey. My first attempt knit using the magic loop with an Addi Lace needle resulted in a...hexagon?

Decidedly not.

Next attempt was on four double pointed needles.

Still too squat and lopsided.

Tried knitting two plain rounds before starting increases using just three double points.

Hexagon. Phew.

And puffy!

Daffodil still needs another inch on the body. Close to finishing but it feels like it's dragging on and on.

Love the color combo you are using for Daffodil

Your Daffodil looks great! Beautiful colors. I bought the yarn for mine on Saturday and cast it on same day!

I'm about to jump into the hexipuff madness. Why are they so seductive to knitters?
