As you know I have been diligently knitting away on what has affectionately been referred to as my Bee Blob. It was to be a surprise for a soon to be new mom and I didn't want to spill the beans, therefore.....the Bee Blob :).
I finished up with her late last night just in time for her to make her way to her new owner...... Cheryl today.
As you can see, the Bee Blob is Anne’s new pattern, Honey Baby. Early this spring, I asked Anne if she would consider writing a pattern based on my favorite bees as a baby blanket as I knew that a new baby was going to be in our midst. I felt it was such a perfect way to welcome a little wee bee into the sisterhood of the hive. (Manise knows what I am talking about)
Anne was pretty busy at the time, so I didn’t think about it again until she emailed me in June and asked if I was still interested in doing this project. Of course the answer was a resounding YES!
Whew….it came right down to the wire as to weather or not I would get it finished in time as I had made an error early on that had me tearing back a good 10 inches of my work….aggh. Silly error from not paying close enough attention.
So……. I made a conscious decision yesterday morning that I was not going to get out of my chair until it was finished……and I was in that chair ALL day long.... late into the evening....... which is no easy feat for a grrl with ADD.. :).
Sitting in my chair I was able to finish Baby Bee and I was also able watch the entire funeral and final goodbyes for Ted Kennedy. It was incredibly moving. Living most of my life in Massachusetts, good or bad, love them or hate them, the Kennedy’s have always been a little part of my history. It’s sad to see this chapter come to an end, but his family said good bye in such a beautiful and touching way. I was glad I was able to watch the entire event from start to finish.
I am offering this as a kit in the shop. I hope that you enjoy it as much as I did…….such a beautiful pattern!!
Thank you Anne!
