flight of the bumblebee


how lucky am i? testknitting the bee shawl for knitspot anne was an absolute joy.



mine is knit with the honey colored yarn from anne at willy wonka fibers. it was the other color sent to knitspot anne. (too many annes). the only thing i changed was to go down a needle size. learned my lesson after the humongous wing of the moth.



now if only my blocking wires were here with me. a stormy saturday sky in fort lauderdale.

Say, didja break your previous land speed record knitting this one?... ;-)

I desperately want the honey-colored kit. The greenish one is nice too, but the honey really speaks to me. I'm anxiously awaiting your blocking pics! :-)
