KCBW4 - Day 2: The Mascot Project

Yesterday my task was to assign myself to a house and, as you may remember, I decided I was a bee as I flit from project to project when something 'shiny' grabs my eye.

Today's task is to choose a project that is somehow linked to our house.

I could have chosen a cute crocheted amigurumi bee but I thought outside if the box and have actually chosen my ongoing project - The Hexapuff blanket. This happens to be the crocheted  version of the knitted Beekeepers Quilt by Tiny Owl Knits and is so called because it resembles the hexagons within a bee hive.

This project us great for us bees for a number of reasons:
1) You can leave it at any time to flit off to do another project bday easily return to it days/weeks or even months later very easily
2) 1 hexagon crochets up really quickly so you don't get too bored
3) It is a great way of using up left over yarn from all if those projects on the go and so is all multicoloured to keep us interested!

My blanket is a WIP (work in.progress) and has a long way to go before it is finished! It mainly uses sock yarn (I love the stuff - the colors are soooo beautiful!!) and I use up all of my left over yarn from my other projects and so it changes colour and texture and keeps me interested!

What project would you have chosen to represent us bees?

Until tomorrow!

  3. Haha! The Beekeeper's quilt was my never to make project. Guess we are nothing alike in the craft sense! And do I spy yet more Nurturing Fibres yarn in there? That must have been the never ending ball!

  4. Goodness gracious - people keep presenting me with reasons to learn how to crochet! Great post, I love that blanket. Now all I need to do is work out this one stick business...
