each new arrival deserves some fanfare—the songs of bees in the fields and ssh-ssh of summery grasses are gathered here in a soft shawl that provides just the right comfort and protection for a sleeping babe or toddler. knit in dreamy colors of superwash fingering wool, this piece will travel a little one’s life for years to come as a treasured token of childhood.

my friend kim at the woolen rabbit has the BEST ideas—she approached me in late spring proposing a baby bee blanket project for a special gift. i had often thought about reworking the bee shawl pattern into a baby blanket, but hadn’t got my mojo up for it. then she put . . . well . . . a bee in my bonnet by talking yarn and colors and then there was a new nephew arriving for me and she said she’d test knit and off we went on a magic blanket ride, each of us finishing just in the nick of time (well, she will, anyway, if we all send good knitting karma her way!).
thank you ever so much kim; i probably would’ve put this one off til who knows when if it wasn’t for your encouragement—and it turned out to be so much fun.
BTW, kim has several new and luscious yarns in her delightful shop, including one with cashmere—go take a look!
and now, let’s see a few more photos . . .
