tiny little bees (2)

Bees 2I’ve been making bees again.

Bees 3I’ve made bees before (and it seems I called that post ‘tiny little bees’ as well…).

Bees 1They’re quick and easy to make, and just so very cheerful that I can’t help myself.

Bees 4These are being sent to a friend’s daughter. I’m trying to focus on the fact that they are cheerful, rather than that they are over a month late for her birthday. Especially as I’m sending her brother’s present (knitted bunting in the same parcel, and his birthday was in April.

Morien's knitted buntingI think I might have just started my new year’s resolutions list…

    These gifts will surely be worth the wait.

    Painterwife I was thinking exactly the same about the mobile! They’re just fab aren’t they! makes me wish I could knit…

  4. Thanks all!

    Strangely enough, last time I made them was for a baby, and I sewed them together with a length of invisible string, one above the other in a long line. They twirled and danced in a row, and were utterly charming.

    This time the recipient is a little older and I thought it would be more fun for her to be able to play with them. But yes, a mobile is a brilliant idea!

    Robyn, get yourself on youtube, you’ll be knitting in no time!

  5. I make mice that look just like these for my kitties!
