Have you guys seen the Beekeeper's quilt by Tiny Owl Knits?
I came across it last month while browsing on Ravelry. I became intrigued and have since purchased the pattern and begun the project. This is not something that I'll devotedly work on right through to completion, but here and there, between other projects. The individual "hexipuffs" of which the quilt is made are really fun to knit. They don't take much time and are the perfect "mindless" knitting to work on while watching TV, riding in the car or to take along anywhere you may have some free time.
(the pic above is the designer's completed quilt, the two below show my completed hexipuffs...).
I have made 20 so far but will need hundreds of them depending on the size of the quilt I want to end up with. Sure, it's a big commitment and will most likely take me two to three years to complete. But since I am not working to have it done by any specific date, I can just enjoy the slow, easy progress and watch my pile of hexipuffs grow.
I've chosen to work in muted earthy tones including blues, greens, grays and reds so far, but the color spectrum may get broader as I go. I am keeping an open mind and will let things evolve as they may! A lot or "Ravelers" have even come up with duplicate stitch patterns to add to their hexipuffs, most of which can be downloaded for free on Ravelry (you can see some examples of this in the top picture).
Well, just wanted to share what I've been working on lately. Hope everyone's have a great October so far...take care!
