ongoing projects 5; beekeepers quilt
I bought the pattern for the Beekeeper's Quilt from Tiny Owl Knits over on their Ravely page a few weeks ago. M, my housemate and best friend from university, started working on hers a couple of years ago and I was fascinated by how beautiful it was coming along. But I couldn't use double pointed needles at that point and so just looked from a far. Then the ever patient M taught me how to knit socks and in reading blogs I saw that EVERY knitter (pretty much) was working on their very own quilt!
And so right at the beginning here I am with my first 8 hexipuffs - I knitted 3 while visiting big brother in Durham this weekend (brilliant time by the way - such beautiful weather!). And they looks great! Only 392 more to go for a decent sized quilt....are you working on a quilt, beekeeper or otherwise?
