Life Just Got Buzzier ( 4KCBWDAY1 )

That is such a good pun up there. Dad would be proud.

For the KCBW, I was sorted- rather, I sorted myself - into the House of Bee. After all, the description fits me (and almost every other knitter in the Universe) perfectly:

Bees are busy and industrious, but can flit from one interesting project to the next as bright and shiny things capture their interest.

Pretty much a perfect fit! But, why? Today I'm meant to talk about why I'm in the House of Bee, what brought me to that busy hive, what made me make this decision? Well, would you like to have a look at all of my WIPs?

Yesterday, I put every single WIP I had, excepting 3, into my Hibernation Can. This was to help me finish my Oh My Bear! sweater more quickly, because I have a goal to get it done by the end of May and that wasn't happening with a billion other projects waiting to snag my attention. But even yesterday, I made good progress on the sweater and I've now finished the back and started the hood.

What can I say? I'm extremely proud of that bear.

The other two WIPs I left out of the Hibernation Can were my Thor Scarf and my Beekeeper's Quilt. The Thor Scarf just came out of the Hibernation Can, and it seemed cruel to put it back in again, and I'm trying to make one Hexipuff a day for my Beekeeper's Quilt and I can't reach that goal if the project is in hibernation.

Thus ends my first post of KCBW. Thank you for stopping by- if it's your first time here, follow, leave a comment, etcetera etcetera. If you'd like me to see your KCBW posts, leave me a comment and I'll drop you a visit!


  1. love the bear - its beary nice ; )
    I have only taken a quick look at your blog but have earmarked it to look through later

  2. Goodness, everyone is a Bee this year! I'm a Monkey, although I did think about going Bee for a bit. How do you like working the with Patons sock yarn? I just frogged a pair of socks I made my husband with the same red/slate/gray/brown colorway you're using in the Thor Scarf. I liked working with the yarn initially, but frogging was a real beast because the socks had been through the wash and felted just a smidge (which is nice in socks you wear, I suppose, since they were quite sturdy). Ugh, fluffies everywhere. Anyway, I'll be checking back throughout the week! Can't wait to see your other posts!

    1. Thanks!
      I like it pretty well- dunno how it would work for socks though. It's great for a scarf :)

  3. You are totally awesome. I want to be you :)

    1. Aww, sweetie :) well sadly you have a baby to take care of so you can't be me ;-)


Thanks for commenting! xoxo
