Long-Term Project Alert: The Beekeeper’s Quilt

You’ve probably heard of the Beekeeper’s Quilt by now, so forgive me if I’m telling you something you already know. The Beekeeper’s Quilt is one of those patterns that has spread like wildfire across the knitting world these past few months.  It’s a long-term, stash-busting project that is immensely customizable to your own tastes.  Hundreds of soft, fuzzy, cushy hexipuffs sewn together into a cozy, floppy quilt?  Yes, please!

This project has an added bonus of being charming even while laying around the house in its in-progress state, which is a good thing because this is going to be a very long-term project for me.  I started exactly three months ago and I’m only up to 27 puffs, which is yielding about one square foot of quilty goodness.

Its so much fun pulling all the hexipuffs out of their bowl and laying them out to get just a glimpse of what the finished quilt might look like.  It also gives you a chance to consider adding additional colors to the mix, which I’ll be doing very soon.

Although it was only two small projects, I’m proud to say that I’ve finished my Christmas Knitting!

 

"Pfffft!"

"Pfffft!"

Henry even helped!

I had to put my Shredded Wheat Scarf on hold while I knitted the Christmas gifts, but as soon as I was done, I felt a strong desire to start something new.  Something that’s been floating around in my brain since it first started getting cold around here…
