Ahhhh...SO pretty, Vanessa. Anne's designs are just gorgeous and how smart of her to have Flame Fingers do the test knitting! I am sure that this will be another big hit for Anne. Your work, as always is magnificent.

Came over from knitspot to see your Bee, and it's lovely! Must have been a fun knit too seeing the litle bees growing out of the lace.
