Let it Bee, Let it Bee
I'll talk to you in the comments. :)
I embellish a bit sometimes. I did a quick knit for two tiny twins I know. Using up the stash again. Just these two straight knit hats. Then I thought they looked too plain. So I embroidered a bee on each.
I had yellow and black sock yarn from Lorna's, I believe in the leftover stash. I had to cut the yellows and blacks into strips and then use the strips so that the bees would have the right colors in the right spots. They are tiny bees so upon my first try the entire bee was yellow.
Anyhow, the little twin has nearly grown out of his hat. His mom is delighted that he can use the bigger twins' hat again. This is a sweet Jewish family that I am working with. I decided on the bees because it was their New Year and others tell me you give apples and honey as a gift. So I did a bee thing. The boys can't eat apples and honey yet! In fact, no infant or child under 2 should have honey you know don't you?
I've digressed. I do that often here on the blog. So that's it. Just some not difficult at all striaght knitting.
