News from the hive

Thank you all so much for your great comments about the Bee Field adventure and the yarn choice! Stella, you go girl...Drunken Bee socks would be outstanding!!!

Shortly after commencing this pattern with such zest and enthusiasm...I hit the frog pond. No worries...I had good company there, and a fun time was had by all...there was a little errata issue on row 2, so we frogged...only 11 rows. No harm, no foul.

I'm happy to report that the Bee is back in play. We have cast on, again, and completed the first 11 rows, again, without issue! Yippy Skippy! I have tried to organize the pattern for easier reference. I believe a few more tags may be necessary!

I don't want to leave you in want of some fibery goodness on this wonderful Thursday I'll let you contemplate the meaning behind all these danged picots...If you come up with let me know!

Sorry to hear about having to frog...looks like you have it all under control now!

Picots are fun, that's the reasoning behind them! :) Does there need to be more?

Please pass the Post-Its! :-)

Have you noticed the Bee Fields Shawl "winglets" look a little like picots?
You just can't escape them!

I ordered some of this honey yarn in the geisha, I'm going to copy you, yarn and all. I have been drooling over the pattern and you solved the yarn dilemma. I'm going to let you work out all the bugs first though so blog away about your experience, O.K.? Meanwhile, I need to cast on for another emulation, Brooklyn Tweed's newest masterpiece. Have you seen it?

Oh picots need no explanation, they just are!

I'm off to the beach with a hemlock Ring on the needles in bright scarlet Eco wool (inspired by a certain baby blanket you knit). My camera is a Canon Powershot SD750 Digital Elph.
