Honeybee


Sorry it's taken a bit longer to get the photo up and that it's not brilliant but things are busy round here, and since I finished the 1st half on Monday I haven't managed to get near it to start the 2nd half and hopefully 3 weeks today this will being unwrapped!!! DH has already asked if we will be blocking this Christmas Eve....
Top to bottom it shows the 3 patterns.... Bee & Honeycomb, Bee Swarm & Beehive
This is using Knit Picks Alpaca Cloud "Tide Pool Heather" on 3.75mm circular. I am doing the smaller size as my SIL in only 5' but as I have 3 hanks of this and didn't really want any over I have actually done 10 repeats rather than 7 of the Beehive pattern; weighing the remaining yarn I probably could have got 12 repeats for each half out or done extra repeats in the other two patterns but I'm cutting it close as it is without stressing myself if I'll run out of yarn or not....
Anyway am going to go and try and knit some more on this.... I promise better and more detailed photos when it's finished....

That looks great. I'm very jealous seeing all these lovely lace projects underway. I'm Christmas knitting socks and mittens at the moment and I'm missing my lace habit!

That really is very beautiful - I love the bee motif running through it - you have inspired me to knit more lace in the new year!
